DG-808 flap positions wrong

Post by JShieck » Sun Apr 04, 2021 12:34 pm

Flying the DG-808 I recognised that the positions of the flap lever are not accurately.
Like you can see in the picture the lever is between two flap settings. (So it's difficult to see if the flaps are right if the HUD is off.)

Like you can see in the following picture the negativ flap boundaries are set wrong:

The L flap setting is correct in the notch:

Would be very thanksfull if this could get fixed.
Maybe next update?

It's the same for all flapped gliders.

Condor assumes all the flaps positions have the same interval between them, but that's not true of the real gliders or the markings in the cockpit.

For ASG29 and ASW20 I'm sure it's right.

And for the 808 I think only the negative lever boundary has to be corrected.
(look at the graphic)

It is a limitation of the current animations used in Condor. We can only define a linear axis with equally spaced flap settings. So either the decal/model is wrong or the flaphandle doesnt line up. At the moment there is nothing we can do anything about that.
