Flap Problem

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon.I am having a very new problem with the PMDG aircraft and it seems to be specific to the NGX. I just got the Saitek Yoke, Throttle and Pedals for my computer. Today, when I started up Flightsim, the flaps are in the full down position, however, the lever is in the full up position. I checked my calibration and even changed the assignments for the flaps. Any ideas why this would happen? (Yes my hydraulics are on and I have no failure that is activated). Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Have you cycled te flaps? Just put flaps to 1 unit, then back up and see if they retracts.If yes, save the panel status (as I can understand this is your saved panel state)

AndreaYes, I have tried to cycle my flaps including using the mouse to pull the lever. Thanks for the idea though.

i have the same setup as you. I use SPAD instead of the provided Saitek yoke software. Haven't had any problems since.

fsx by default reverses the axis for the flaps, just put a check in the box next to reverse axis in your axis assignments

Thanks guys for your ideas. I think I solved the problem. It seems I had a corrupt saved panel state. When I started with Cold and Dark everything was right. Thanks again for all your help.
