View Full Version : Flaps on Me 109

Every time I pull down the flaps on the Me109 the noise produced by the flaps coming down, never stops until the landing gear is down.
This happens always regardless of the setting of the flaps and the speed the airplane is flying.
Any idea what the problem is?

I believe what you are speaking of is not the venting of either the hydraulics or pneumatics but the "alarm" sound warning you the flaps are down in a non take off or landing situation.

Think of it as the buzzer or chimes telling you you left your keys in the ignition/door ajar/seatbelt unfastened etc..

not the "flap alarm" u mean?? i think the 109 has a warning to pilots that their flaps is at a down position, and it's shut off eighter by raising flaps, or lowering gear, cause then it's belived u need flaps anyways.....anyways...just a newbies thoughts :P

Well, to tell the truth, I'm grateful it's there. It can get annoying at times, that little horn, but sometimes if I've been playing around with the flaps, I sometimes forget which position they're in. The horn helps me realize they're still down. The only problem is when you jam the flaps...

It used to annoy the hell out of me.
I don't even pay it any attention anymore.
You get used to it.

It's actually warning for landing gear http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif - it's used in other aircraft too. Usually flaps are deployed primarily for landing only and the alarm warns the pilot that he should not forget the landing gear. Why the others are not plagued with this irritation is beyound me.

There's a story about a pilot who made a belly landing. Others came to the spot and asked why he did not take the landing gear down...Didn't he notice the landing gear warning. "I could not hear any damn warning because this damn horn was making such a noise"

Quote from the english translation of a finnish flight an maintenence manual for the bf109G-2
(translation by Mika Ganszauge, 1999) from 1943:

"You will hear a warning tone if the undercarriage is not locked down properly and you start extending the flaps."

Ambassador Londo Mollari: "Now, landing thrusters.. landing thrusters, hmm. Now if I were a landing thruster, which one of these would I be?"

Sorry, but in FB the alarm is that yer flaps are down, not the landing gear in the 109s. Check it out by using F8 if ya don't believe it. And, land without using flaps too.... no alarm. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If the manual really refers to that alarm sound we hear in the game, yeees. You can try lowering your gear, the the alarm should dissapear then.

Just tried it out: flaps down, gear up -&gt; alarm sound, flaps down, gear lowered -&gt; no alarm.

By the way
Flaps on the 109 were not hydraulic or electric or pnuematic,..they were manually operated using a chain belt and a big wheel on the left side of the cockpit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Don't worry, the noise is simply a result of the interrupted airflow over the wing. The air makes that kind of sound, you know. It stops making the sound when you release your gear due to the airflow being evened out.

That's only true if you're flying a Spitfire, because it has Imperial Ion Engines and an antigravity system.
