    Flaps do not stop at 5.

    All of a sudden, no matter what model I use, the flaps will not set at 5.
    They will go to 1 but when pushed again, the skip 5 and go to 15. This
    happens both ways.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what is causing this and how to resolve
    it?

    When I tested it outside PM it worked so I am not sure what the fix is in
    PM.

    Many thanks,

    Matthew

    Flaps do not stop at 5.

    I believe this is in the text file in the CDU. I changed to a new file I
    picked up here from another post and the problem is fixed with the flaps at
    5.

    I downloaded a new file of the 777-200-224 and it still didn't work while the
    flaps at 5 did work in the 777-200LR file.

    Maybe someone can determine the fix for the 777-200-224 file or if I just
    have the wrong download.

    Hi,

    I had simular problem, but what does the Flpos and Flset on the 777 that
    works say. Is that line of flap code even in the 777.txt file? Just a
    thought.

    The only problem with flaps that I have is that it moves from Flap 0 directly
    to 5 and the reason for this is that PM does not support only forwarding
    edge deployment (flap 1 in 777).

    Hi,

    I added that flap 1 setting via leading edge to the GC, will upload it now.

    Please also check the 777200 txt file for that change (tested with the FS
    default aircraft).

    flppos=2 is the relevant entry, should you be using another flight model.

    Ciao

    Enrico

    flppos=0
    flpset=0
    vmin=vref
    vret=0
    vext=vref
    vmax=330

    flppos=2
    flpset=1
    vmin= vref
    vret =vref+20
    vext = vref
    vmax = 255

    Hello

    I just checked this fix with PSS 777-200LR with default 777 panel. GC
    correctly detects the transition from 0 to 1 flap and from 1 to 5 however it still
    displays 5 instead of 1. The CDU monitor shows 0s in flaps positions.

    Thanks

    Leon

    Can you please check with the default FS 777? It should show 1...

    I do not have the PSS flight model, can you read the value in the leading
    edge offset when flaps 1 is set?

    > displays 5 instead of 1. The CDU monitor shows 0s in flaps positions.


    Of course, the flaps are still 0 in FS when 1 is set.
