F4F Wildcat family flap ripping


Vehicles affected:

F4F-3

F4F-4

Martlet Mk IV

 

Issue:

In the current game, all models of the F4F will rip their flaps in combat mode past a certain airspeed. However, according the and Wildcat Mk VI and F4F-4 Pilot's Handbook, "there is no danger in opening the flap operating valve at high speeds. The flaps will not come down in speeds in excess of 130 knots".

Proposed Solution:

If deployed in combat mode, F4F flaps should automatically be forced into the raised position after surpassing and airspeed of 130 knots (241.4 km/h). Any attempts to deploy the flaps past this airspeed should notify the player that they cannot engage the flaps, rather than deploying and ripping the flaps.

Hi.

 

The blow out flaps is known to be only partially working at the moment.

 

You cannot destroy your flaps by deploying them at a speed that is too high. You can only damage them by having them deployed and accelerating past their destruction speed.

 

Regards
