Drooping flight control surfaces.

As we now have engine startup and shutdown in game, I think it would be more realistic to have the flight control surfaces such as elevators, ailerons and others, droop if the engines are shutdown. It would make the game more lifelike as the FCS are operated through hydraulics which are in turn powered by the engines.
Here is an image illustrating the droop:

We do have moving elivators.

Very nice idea, unfortunately I have no votes left, don’t forget to vote for it too ;)


This might be a duplicate as this old topic was closed. Not too sure if there is a new one though.
