    Digital Flap Indicator Incorrect

    I'm using the digital flaps display that has the bar with the digital readout
    next to it, along with the PMDG 737-700. The problem that I'm having is
    two fold the first is the movement of flaps based on the flaps lever in the
    Cockpit. With the lever in the following positions MSFS puts the flaps to
    the corrosponding settings:

    Lever MSFS
    0 0
    1 Nonresponsive
    2 1
    5 2
    10 5
    15 10
    25 15
    30 25
    40 40 - MSFS gives sound effects for two selections (30&40)

    When Comparing the flaps indicator on the MSFS 2D panel to the digital
    display on the PM ECAIS I get the following relations:

    MSFS Flaps 1 2 5 10 15 25 30* 40
    ECAIS Flaps 1 1 1 2 5 15 25* 40
    *This flap setting can only be selected using the incremental flaps button on
    the keyboard not by the flaps lever in the cockpit.

    The bar that represents the flaps in the ECAIS display moves poperly as the
    flaps do it's just the numerical readout next to it that displays
    inproperly.

    In accordance with the post "Flaps Indicator"
    (http://news.projectmagenta.com:8080/read?400212,1348
    Flaps Settings in B737700.txt) I configured the flaps setting in the
    B737700.txt file to the following:

    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

    I also tried changing the "Change Type" value in the ECAIS .ini to equal
    B737700.txt rather then cdu after I made the above changes but had no change in
    the results. Any suggestions on what the problem is and how I can fix
    it??

    Digital Flap Indicator Incorrect

    Those look like 757 flap settings, not 737.

    You should be using something like this:

    flppos=0
    flpset=0
    vmin=vref40+50
    vret=0
    vext=vref40+70
    vmax=340

    flppos=1
    flpset=1
    vmin=vref40+70
    vret=vref40+50
    vext=vref40+50
    vmax=250

    flppos=2
    flpset=2
    vmin=vref40+30
    vret=vref40+50
    vext=vref40+50
    vmax=250

    flppos=5
    flpset=5
    vmin=vref40+20
    vret=vref40+30
    vext=vref40+30
    vmax=250

    flppos=10
    flpset=10
    vmin=vref40+20
    vret=vref40+30
    vext=vref40+30
    vmax=210

    flppos=15
    flpset=15
    vmin=vref40+10
    vret=vref40+20
    vext=vref40+20
    vmax=195

    flppos=25
    flpset=25
    vmin=vref40
    vret=vref40+10
    vext=vref40+10
    vmax=170

    flppos=30
    flpset=30
    vmin=120
    vret=0
    vext=0
    vmax=165

    flppos=40
    flpset=40
    vmin=120
    vret=0
    vext=0
    vmax=156
