Default number of detent for flaps


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I use the 737ngx and a throttle quadrant. By default there is 9 flaps detents for the 737ngx (like in real), I would like to reduce this number to 7 (for example). How can I do ?

 

I ask this question because I have no enough place in my quadrant to put the 9 (I create some "hole" in it to place the flaps levers).

 

Thank you.

Maybe my post is not very clear: I have forgotten to say that i use the fsuicp feature for the flaps detent. I can certainly do what I want with the classic calibration of the flaps détent but it is not what I want.

 

How would you expect the aircraft to behave for the two flap detentes you want to omit?  If you simply don't want it to stop at those two, why not defined the detente points so close to the next that it is chosen by FS instead? You might even to be able to do it so you can still use all 9 but bypass on going up and the adjacent one going down. Have not not tried anything yet?

 

The only other way is to calibrate for the 9 then edit the INI file entry for the calibration results to remove two.

If i use the second solution do I have to leave nothing before two values:

 

Example (it is not my ini file, don't care at the value)

 

FlapsSetControl=0
FlapDetents=Yes
Flaps=0,16380/16
FlapStarts=-16384,-13952,,16384,16384,16384,16384,16384,16384
FlapEnds=-16383,16380,,16383,16383,16383,16383,16383,16384

No, don't leave the excess commas in place.

 

Actually, I've checked into this further now, and my suggestion probably won't work. I think it might just then miss setting the final two positions, not the positions you want to omit.

 

So I think you'll need to just calibrate so that two of the detentes are very close -- i.e. my first suggestion.
