Gradual spoilers deploy

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to have the spoilers deploy gradually not just ON/OFF using the joystick ofcourse I know you could do it with a mouse...I use CH Flight Sim Joke so the three levers I have I use for 1.Throttle2.Spoilers (but not gradual only works as ON/OFF)3.Reverser (not gradual just FULL ON/OFFI use the CH Manager for it all works fine just if I could make the spoilers deploy gradually...any suggestions?ThanksAndy

Spoilers (at least on most aircraft) don't work like that.They're up or they're down (or in/out), with maybe an option to arm them to deploy when the landing gear contacts the ground.

Hey!Just to say that in airliners the spoilers can be deployed gradually, they are used during the decent to increase the rate of decent and slow down the aircraft.Its appears you have the lever assigned to the button feature of spolier and not the axis. Go to the joystick assignments and then to joystick axis, here u can assign the lever to the spolier axis, I have mine running and its great!Simon

I will give it a shot.. Thanks indeed in big jets I offten see that some times pilot does deploy spoilers, but just a little to slow himself down.Andy

Andy,There is a gauge available that will do just what you want. You just have to add the gauge to your panels and then you can adjust the spoilers in increments by mouse-clicking the gauge. It's small, so it will fit just about anywhere.Even though it's a FS98 gauge, it works fine in FS2002.Filename: spoilers.zipAuthor: Tony BoltonWhere: Flightsim.comCheers,Bob
