737 Frontal Flaps


#1

Since the last 18.6 update, I began flying the 737 several times and notices that when adjusting the flaps, the frontal flaps did not adjust according to the degree level. Here is a picture that explains the issue:

Could the plane editors fix this problem?

Flaps settings 1, 2 and 5 have all the same front flaps position.
By changing flaps from 5 to 10 and any further settings, the front flaps should extend to their second position.

Is this what you are seeing? I believe it’s supposed to work like this.
As I understand it, the front flaps only have two positions.


#3

Just as an note these frontal flaps are called slats.


#4

This is not a problem, this is how almost every real airliner works. The planes in the past were not done correctly.


#5

The correct name for frontal flaps are slats😉😀


#6

Well actually, that is not entirely correct.

Some aircraft do have slats.
The 737 however has leading edge flaps called Kreuger flaps as well as slats. 😉


#7

I thought they were mainly on the 747


#8

Lol an correction to an correction what’s next an correction to your correction 😂.


#9

Well actually the 737 has both slats and Kreuger flaps.

Slats slide out of the leading edge.
Kreuger flaps rotate out of the leading edge.


#10

Either way, they look cool. Don’t they move a bit quick when setting Flap 1° though? They almost explode out of the wing


#11

So turns out we are both right😂


#12

I think the real problem here is the Kreuger flaps clipping in to the engines!


#13

I think this is to do with the unlinking of cockpit animations?


#14

Hey! I see you. Lol.

Anyway, that’s a bug on the plane I picked up shortly after the update released. It also does the same thing when it closes.

I was going to report it but its so minor that its not worth mentioned, or is it?


#15

Oh heyyy
Well, although not major it’s a little bit of immersion lost. Probably worth pointing it out just so they can slow it down a bit. As they say, it’s the small things that matter!
