you basicly set up a end point and rotation and it moves the obect from the starting point at -100 on the servo to the endpoint numbers at 100 on the servo.

Maybe you didn't catch it but the DC-4 beta of mine you probably have uses linear actuators to control the foot pedal movement. And my F8F-2 Bearcat uses a bunch of them. So just look in the physics and you'll find them and then checkout how they're setup. To find out what the linear actuator icon in the physics looks like (so you can find them easy) just select the fuselage and Add A Linear Actuator and then look for that icon to find where they're used. Don't forget to delete the Linear Actuator you added.

I have the flaphandle working, but the sequence is in the wrong direction. Is there a way to fix it, or do I have to set it in the down position in MAX ?

I guess I'm going to forget the cockpit animations. I can't get the flap handle animations to reverse, to match the flap animation.

When you setup an animation there's a 'servo reverse' setting that should make the part reverse it's direction.

I tried that ,but it's all out of whack. I have it linked to the Flap servo. Do I need a separate flap handle servo ?

Thanks. I'd love to see a video done, from someone who really flies well with it.

I don't think so I've done things like that using the normal servo. You might upload a beta for us to look at.

I appreciate the help.

The flaps are channel 6.

When the flaps are up, the handle should be forward in the retracted position ( it is back in the extended position). If I reverse the servo, the handle moves toward the nose instead of aft.
