Usually that happens when you have a control assigned BOTH in FS and in FSUIPC.If you have the key assigned in FS, do not assign an offset to it or each time you use the key/button it will send two commands to FS. Likewise, when programming a button/key via offset, make sure that any FS assignment for that button/key is deleted in the FS options menu.Also, make sure the "repeat" option is not selected for that button/key.RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

What control are you using to actuate the flaps?regardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

«I use F7 and f6 (fs standard) and not work well. Change to offset x6d11 x02 and x03 and it is the same ( with f7 and f6 deleted) :(

One of two things is happening...either you have the control assignment doubled up, or the repeat-key function is causing multiple keysends.I would start by disabling both F6 and F7 in FS--go into the options menu for control assignments and delete the key assignments for "Flaps retract incrementally" and "Flaps extend incrementally." Then go into FSUIPC and delete any assignments for F6 and F7. Make sure that when you press F6 or F7 that nothing happens so you're sure that there is no assignment. Then go back into FS control assignments and assign the F6 and F7 keys back to flaps retract/extend incrementally, and make sure that the repeat slider is all the way to the left in the menu.There is also an invisible clickspot over the face of the flap gauge that allows the flaps to be extended or retracted. Does that work normally?RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO
