Phoenix question

How do you make flaps, spoilers and crow work on phoenix? I've tried turning them all on to max in model edit and it is detecting my flaps switch, channel 6, yet I'm not seeing any effect on the model. It's the SimProp glider so you would think it would support flaps and crow. Thanks for any help you can give me. DX8 Tx

I set the flaps on the DX6i (maybe similar) to:
Norm 0 0
Land 100 0

Then went back into phoenix and recalibrate

I edited my controls in phoenix to use channel 5 for gear
6 for flaps
I setup keys for smoke and bomb drop
I haven't got my heli stuff right yet.
Note some channels are reversed (checkmark in the box)
It took me a while and some helps from freinds to get it right.
there in here will know more perhaps.
You'll get it.
Note: the P51 flies real well with gear up and flaps up.
Nice slow flying with flaps down and quick takeoffs and easy landing but flaps down seriously affects higher speed stuff. Good luck with it.
You may have to restart phoenix to get things to work as well when setting up.

I found I had to go into model edit to get them to work. They were not given a drag coefficient at all but work really well once one is put in. Now to figure out how to get 2 position flaps. I think I will have to set crow and partial flaps using the Tx.

Phoenix RC 5 / Devo 7e (deviation) crow break


I'm currently running Phoenix R/C simulator with a Devo-7e (deviation 4.0.1) and am testing crow air breaks with the NAN Shadows glider since it's the only one available with flaps. The breaking effect is amazing.
I use HOLD switch to activate the crow function via Throttle. This is still work-in-progress but if anyone is interested I could share the current .ini file and some details of the Phoenix setup.
