    Problem with flaps settings in PM ECIAS

    Iím trying to get the flaps set right in the ECIAS for my B747-400. When I move my (home made) flap lever from 5 to 10 the ECIAS flaps indicator doesnít stop at 10 but keeps moving to 20. Ive tried changing the Flppos values in the B747-400 text file in the CDU folder but nothing changes. I tried setting detents in FUIPC in the Flaps calibration but that didnít help either. The flaps refuse to stop at 10 when either deploying or retracting. What am I missing?

    Hi Jerry,

    Did you ever got an answer or figured out how to fix this? I have the same problem.

    No, someone suggested I check the FSX aircraft.cfg file but that was no help.

    I have the same problem too using 737, on another PC running the same GC the flap settings are correct, even reinstalling doesn't work.
