So I have been flying the classic birds around in Expert Server for a while now and I have realized something odd.
The flaps of these birds, I feel that they dont even have flap physics. They act more like airbrakes.
I have tested this claim to see if it is true and indeed it is.
First I tried taking off with flaps deployed and for the second one with no flaps deployed.
The result? There is no difference of taking off with flaps or no flaps. But I did see this: taking off with flaps required more power from the engines than it would with no flaps deployed.
So I am concerned. Why do the flaps act more like airbrakes than they do as flaps?
Really I do not know if this is how a DC-10 or MD-11 really flies but it is kind of odd.
