Typing error in 777F Aircraft config file?

Recommended Posts

While searching the 777F Aircraft.cfg file I found what looks like a typing error in the "Flaps.0" section, where the letter W appears on the type=1 line before the comment markers (see below)

I have no idea if this is likely to affect anything (if indeed it is a typo!), but thought I'd better mention it as none of the other config files seem to have a similar entry. Should I delete it?

[Flaps.0]
type=1                                  W// ** FLAPS **
extending-time=54                       // Total seconds
span-outboard=0.69      // 0.0 .. 1.0
flaps-position.0= 0.00000               // pseudo-degrees
flaps-position.1= 6.11111               // 1  11 sec
flaps-position.2=13.33333               // 5  24 sec
flaps-position.3=16.66667               // 15 30 sec
flaps-position.4=19.44444               // 20 35 sec
flaps-position.5=26.11111               // 25 47 sec
flaps-position.6=30.00000               // 30 54 sec
lift_scalar = 1.0
drag_scalar = 1.0
pitch_scalar= 1.0
system_type = 1

Great eye and this is still there in the latest version - David Lee

The flaps are handled externally to the sim.

Thanks for the replies, I did in fact remove it (backed up file first), and as predicted by Chris, made no difference!

FYI, I found an old 777F Aircraft.cfg dated 10/18/2014 in some backup files..
Here is the entry:      [Flaps.0]
                                  type=1                       W// ** FLAPS **

My PMDG notes suggest this is from SP1c 1.10.6155, Service Pack 1c Update, Released 10/8/2014

I agree with Michael (pcubine), correct or not, it works.
