Cowl flaps problem

Recommended Posts

I have set up two axes for cowl flaps on twin engined aircraft using two of the slide levers on my CH yoke and they work perfectly. Then for four engined aircraft I have ticked the appropriate box on page 8 (?) of the joystick calibration section which sets lever 1 to operate cowl flaps 1 and 2, and lever 2 to operate cowl flaps 3 and 4. However, when I go to the aircraft in FSX, lever 1 operates cowl flap 1, lever 2 operates cowl flaps 2 and 3, and there is no movement on cowl flap 4. Has anyone else come across this problem and are there any suggestions to achieve correct operation.

I have also set up throttles, props, and mixture in the same manner and they work perfectly. I am also using the very latest version of FSUIPC as per the recent email

After some further thought I have found a solution to this problem. I first deleted the tick in the mapping box on page 8 of the joystick calibration section. \\the two cowl flap levers were set up for twin engines for all aicraft. Then I used the "4 Eng Prop" profile I used for some other actions and made each cowl flap lever operate two axes, "Cowl Flaps 1 and 2" and "Cowl Flaps 3 and 4". Problem solved even if a little longer to set up.
