    Exclamation Servo Flap Gauge Alignment

    Evening Allan,

    Noticed a couple previous posts concerning callibrating the 737NG flap gauge (servo) with the actual flap position within FS. As outlined earlier, flaps 'UP' and '40' is not an issue, it's everything in between. Are you able to provide some guidance, update, or support within FS2Phidgets? I have everything ready to go, just need some help. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Servo Flap Gauge Alignment

    yep --- until today I do also have no answer for this problem ...
    We need for every flap position a step-point. Alan?
    Have a look to simkits, how they solved the problem ...

    Best regards
    Jan

    Folks,

    I got flaps gauge working with a miniature servo.

    Just need to add a friendly user interface.

    Thanks Alan,
    I think I sent you a message, but not quite sure if I did successfully in this new forum. Regardless, here's my email swekarchuk@rogers.com.
