I don´t know if the camera angle is trickng me, but don´t you think the flaps on the 747 have a very steep look when compared to real life 747s?
It looks like 80degrees 😂
(from this angle)
Yes, they seem to be much steeper than the real ones.
Let me grab my imaginary protractor…
It may be a little bit exaggerated in IF, but if you look at the picture below they do come down quite steep so they may not be far off after all.
I guess you could get a screenshot in IF on the ground and try and recreate the above picture for a fairer comparison?
Could it be a difference between th -8 and the -400 variant?
Remember not all 747s use 30° to land, 25° is possible
But that’s a -8
And when you search on google I can’t find a single image of the very steep flaps.
I think this is a duplicate topic
I searched for it, but I was talking about their difference when fully deployed for landing when compared to the real 747.
Guess the flaps were taken from the 747-8 and the used on the -200 and -400 variants.
It’s because it’s full flaps. I don’t think all planes use full flaps to land. But that’s a question for @Aernout. He would probably know.
They don’t look like that on the other 747 variants, except on the -8 one.
The 747 flaps are too steep when deployed and don’t extend back (other topic) so it seems the flaps in IF weren’t designed/animated to be too realistic.
I don’t know then.
Mostly we do land with full flaps on Airbus, only certain conditions like Windshear or system problems we change the flap setting. Boeing I don’t know exactly.
@Heavydriver can help :)
I’ve seen 747 flaps in real life and they’re both enormous and steep. It takes a lot of lift to let that big girl fly slowly down the glide slope. Nothing wrong with the flaps on Infinite Flight :)
