    Flaps gauge

    Using Simkits flaps gauge for 737-7
    8 positions non linear
    Calibration is in percentage, anyone having the values for each position?

    Hi Jack,

    This is the answer I got from Simkits support:

    "For the B737 for example, the position 0 = 0% and the full flaps are 40 = 100%, so 10 are 25% and so on... When calibrating, you should assign 0 to the field for the position 0 (0%), 25 to the field for the position 10 (25%), 62.5 for 25 and so on...

    In the case of the 737 the flaps are:
    0 -> 0%
    1 -> 2.5%
    2 -> 5%
    5 -> 12.5 %
    10 -> 25%
    15 -> 37.5%
    25 -> 62.5%
    30 -> 75%
    40 -> 100% "


    That gets you in the ball park, but you still have to adjust each position individually.
