    Flaps Indicator

    Hi there,

    This has probably been dealt with a number of times, but bear
    with me...

    PM, PMDG737/700, Flight Illusion hardware flaps indicator
    gauge. When I extent the flaps incrementally, my Flight
    Illusion gauge reads 1, 2, 5, 10 etc, but the flaps readout on
    the PM EICAS doesn't match this. I'm not sure which is telling
    me the truth, or how to make them match!

    Any thoughts gratefully received.

    Paul

    Paul,

    I posted help on this problem a few months ago. Open the B737700.txt file in

    the CDU\Types folder and replace the existing flap entries with those below.

    You might want to make a backup of your original file first.

    flppos=0
    flpset=0
    vmin=202
    vret=0
    vext=206
    vmax=350

    flppos=1
    flpset=1
    vmin=168
    vret=206
    vext=166
    vmax=240

    flppos=7
    flpset=5
    vmin=158
    vret=166
    vext=162
    vmax=220

    flppos=20
    flpset=15
    vmin=153
    vret=162
    vext=159
    vmax=210

    flppos=27
    flpset=20
    vmin=147
    vret=159
    vext=140
    vmax=195

    flppos=33
    flpset=25
    vmin=129
    vret=150
    vext=138
    vmax=190

    flppos=38
    flpset=30
    vmin=127
    vret=145
    vext=0
    vmax=162


    Hope that helps.
