F.O. doesn't set and retract flaps

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My F.O. doesn't set flaps and also doesn't retract although he is indicating he does.
Initially I thought it was noise by my flaps axis, so I disabled but it doesn't seem the cause.
Before taxi I do dail-a-flap myself, 11, otherwise I get a config warning during take off.

Please advise,

Egbert

P3D V4.3

The FO now sets flaps, but still doesn't dail a flap.
Who is responsible for dailing flaps 11? Me or the FO?

Or should I use flaps 15 for TO?

I'd have to double check the code, but I recall that if you want to use "Dial A Flap" for takeoff you need to manually set the desired Dial A Flap value in the aircraft itself, then the FO will set the selected Dial A Flap at the end of the After Start Checklist.
