Help regarding FLAP detents in FSUIPC

(1/4) > >>

dodiano:
A question regarding FSUIPC how do you assign detents for example for the Default 737? I try to do it in the Buttons/switches assign but you only have Flap 1 through 4 basically anyone can help? I am using Switch for each position!

Thanks!

Roberto, 

I have only ever seen anyone use a potentiometer to set the variables for each Flap setting.  I am sure you can assign a flap value with the button by setting the offset.

I recall Peter Dowson in the other forum refer in a post to (8 settings) would divide the total offset max value into equal chunks 8 times.  (4 Settings) would divide it into 4 equal chunks.

Basically, what I am getting at, is once you do the math, set the offset to each value in each button press.  You may need some trial and error, but I though you should be able to do it.

As far as I remember the flaps can be calibrated as an axix, assigning a value for each physical detent? no? yes?
(still working on My TQ, Flaps not yet done))

Jack, that is the best way to do it.  with a pot and the Axis.  Roberto is using switches though, a little tougher.

Yeah Trev,

Going back to the Axis idea... The thing is LEVEL D 767 has each offset for the flaps so basically my Switch idea works but the rest simply won't so I have to make the Flap Axis again... My 767 Throttle Quad will have the switch per position I guess the G-737 will have to stick with Axis!

Regards!
