Yup, they just go from 'Raised' straight to 'Landing' - sigh.

That's because that's the only two flap settings they had.

I happen to know that it is true, but can you please tell me how you know it's not? (this should be good)

It's true, all Hurries and Spits (early ones at least) just had up & down.

O.K. - well, according to the Air Ministry Air Publication 1564B & D, Pilot's notes for Hurricane II's with Merlin Engine, you are wrong /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ckeck List before take off:
Flaps up (28 degrees down - two divs. on indicator - for shortest take-off run.)

General Flying (iv):
In bad visibility near the ground, flaps should be lowered to about 40 degrees (3 divisions) and the propeller speed control set to give 2,650rpm.

Beam Approach:
Stage: Preliminary Approach, 1,500 ft alt, 120mph IAS (2400 rpm)
Actions: Flaps down 30 degrees.

Stage: At Outer Marker, 600ft alt, 95-100mph IAS (3000rpm)
ActionS: Flaps down 60 degrees.

Stage: Overshoot: Upto 400ft alt, 95-100mph IAS (3000rpm)
Actions: RAuse u/c and retrim, raise flap to 30 degrees and retrim. Raise flaps fully and retrim. Adjust boost and rpm at 1,000 ft.

I should have made it clear that I was talking about a Hurricane II.

Interesting... THEN it looks like the Hurricane has infinite flap positions IRL! THe switch just got two positions which do not reflect the flaps position but the flaps movement... that makes sense. So you're right, it should get back the other 2 positions.

But here another suggestion for Oleg:

Pls add 2 buttons for smooth flaps contol, which will change the flaps position as long as they are depressed. It's like in the FWs or the 262 then. In those planes that just have some flap positions one click would jump to the next position in that direction then. But it would be useful for 109, Hurri, FW etc pilots. BI-1 has a similar flap control in the cockpit BTW...

Put flaps on slider. Infinite positions for flaps. Problem solved.
