That's not something that can be done.The lift generated by the flaps is based on a coefficient of lift value that represents a single degree of flap. FS simply multiplies that value by the number of degrees of flap that are in effect.

Actually, it's easy to customize lift and drag for flaps in the aircraft.cfg, by using three separate flaps tables as below (sample data only). The first table gives the degrees settings displayed on the panel, while the second and third set lift and drag for each flap setting.// this table is for displayed flap settings[Flaps.0]type=1span-outboard=0.500extending-time=11.000system_type=0damaging-speed=250.000blowout-speed=300.000lift_scalar=0.000drag_scalar=0.000pitch_scalar=1.000flaps-position.0=0.000, 0.000flaps-position.1=20.000, 0.000flaps-position.2=30.000, 0.000flaps-position.3=40.000, 0.000flaps-position.4=50.000, 0.000//this table sets flap lift[Flaps.1]type=1span-outboard=0.500extending-time=11.000system_type=0damaging-speed=250.000blowout-speed=300.000lift_scalar=1.000drag_scalar=0.000pitch_scalar=0.000flaps-position.0=0.000, 0.000flaps-position.1=34.300, 0.000flaps-position.2=44.500, 0.000flaps-position.3=47.200, 0.000flaps-position.4=50.000, 0.000//this table sets flaps drag[Flaps.2]type=1span-outboard=0.500extending-time=11.000system_type=0damaging-speed=250.000blowout-speed=300.000lift_scalar=0.000drag_scalar=1.000pitch_scalar=0.000flaps-position.0=0.000, 0.000flaps-position.1=5.000, 0.000flaps-position.2=10.000, 0.000flaps-position.3=30.000, 0.000flaps-position.4=50.000, 0.000
