Flap Detente not working


 Share

Recommended Posts

In page 6 Joy Cal of vs 4.063, flaps set-up, I set my flaps 0 position and my max flaps position with no problems. I then set my flaps 1 position again, no problems. I click the scoll wheel to set position 2 and it stays on position #1. The scoll buttons do nothing? Plane is default 737-800 in FSX, it shows correctly in current ac in lower right corner.

Thanks for the help,

Rob

What do you mean "flaps 1 position AGAIN"?

The calibration for Flaps position 1 must be greater than flaps position 0 and less than the maximum. You cannot move to flaps 2 till flaps 1 is set -- and by the sound of it ("AGAIN") you couldn't have done that?

The flaps are numbered 0 = full up, then 1 to N full down.

Here are my settings done 'per the manual',

Base travel is -16383 to 16220

Set '#0' position (flaps up) to -15782,

Set '#2' position (full flaps) to 14254

Set '#1' position (flaps 1) to -14880 - -11724

Now, where did i go wrong as that is what "my" sim is showing.

The again comment was meant to say, again, no problem, not i set it again. :wink:

Don't know. Could you show me the joystick Calibrations section for this, from the FSUIPC4.INI file please.

Have you used the facility before with FSUIPC3 at all?

Here is the section you requested and no, i have never used this facilty before as i had my pots going thru phidget hardware.

Okay. Thanks. I can reproduce the problem and I am trying to figure it out now. It's odd -- the small routine which operates the flap detente section is identical in both FSUIPC3 and FSUIPC4, yet it works in the first and not in the second. I'm tracing through it now. Please look out for another update today or tomorrow, hopefully!

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Regards

Pete

Pete,

Glad the info helped. I got my flaps working by putting the data in the ini file manually. They work great now.

Thanks,

Rob

Meanwhile I found the problem. The number of flaps used in the detente setting part was not beinig initialised in the SimConnect data read section, even though the displayed number of flaps was1 The maximum number of flaps was therefore set wrong. Duh!

It'll be fixed in FSUIPC 4.065, probably late tonight or more likely tomorrow.

Regards

Pete
