No Flaps!

Recommended Posts

When i select flaps, all i get is the noise - no flap movement.No doubt i've left something swithed off, but i'll be ****** if i can see what.....Don't think there's too much wrong though, as the alt electrical flaps work just fine.EDIT: Aaaagggh! Spoilers keep engaging without commanded too!Latest download plus updates.

How are you selecting flaps? F6? Assigned axis?Sounds like you may have a flap axis configured badly. Scroll through the joystick calibration tabs in FSUIPC...for the spoiler and both prop pitch axes you should see "Axis not processed." Anything else means FSUIPC is making an input on that axis regardless of whether there's a physical device assigned.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Thanks for reply.I'm using the CH yoke. You're quite correct. When i use F6/F7 all is well, but for some reason, the CH control won't work on this aircraft.The flap indicator starts to move, but then stops. Most bizzar.Never tried actually USING FSUIPC til now. Guess i should should try to configure it for a 'specific aircraft'?

OK.... just checked. All is as it should be in FSUIPC - those items are listed as 'not processed'.any other ideas?

Right now use of a hardware axis for flap control is not directly supported. The behavior you describe is what happens when you try to use the default FS control...FS starts to move the flaps, and it gets immediately changed back by the panel programming.It's on my list of things to look at in a future release.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Ok thanks. Guess i can just use keyboard commands for flaps.What about the spoilers though? They keep extending every time i go anywhere near the throttle leaver. Is that all part of the same problem? Don't want to be using keyboard to control throttle.Supper looking panel though.

Make sure you have nothing assigned to either prop axis in both FSUIPC and in the FS axis assignments. The prop1 and prop2 axes are used internally by the panel to control the spoilers.CheersBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

>>It's on my list of things to look at in a future release.>Are you looking into hardware axis control for flaps or what about the ability of using the FSUIPC's "Flaps Up/Down" control under key presses.Adam Christopher Volcekavolcek@hotmail.com

Looking at it, yes. But I've slowed down the pace of development for the time being, so don't expect anything soon.You can use an FSUIPC-programmed button or keypress to send a command that moves the flap lever now...in fact it's the preferred means of controlling the flap lever with hardware. It's not the standard FS flap command for reasons already explained elsewhere here on the forum. Details are in the readme.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile
