Default Re: X-Plane B757

yes - it remains to be seen if it makes sense to include some of that stuff but it actually makes it easier to animate the flaps if you build their hinges and supports first.
The mechanical aspects of moving flaps on a flexing wing of a real aeroplane never ceased to amaze me. If you twist and bend the wardrobe cabinet like that all drawers would fall out and never hold again yet the flaps not only stay attached but also can be moved easily.
