FPS-Plus Flap Positioning System
with or without Automatic Elevator Trim Compensation
The FPS-Plus is a full service, automatic, flap positioning system. This system operates similar to the “Cessna type flap systems” that many pilots were trained in. The pilot can easily go from one flap position to another with one quick press of the flap button. All flap stop positions (from 0 to 10, your choice) are easily, user programmable. This system is also fairly simple to retrofit it to your "already flying" aircraft.
The Plus feature of this system, allows you to program an elevator trim position for each flap position. Your elevator trim will be automatically adjusted, for every different flap setting that you choose. NO more manual tweaking of the elevator trim is needed for every different flight configuration.
The pilot can now pay more attention to the actual "flying the aircraft", rather than tweaking the correct amount of elevator trim for every different flight configuration. Flying is made much more enjoyable. If you desire to retract the flaps fully, all you have to do, is press the "flap up" button for more than 1 second. The flaps will be automatically retracted to their full up position. The elevator trim is also automatically adjusted to your cruise trim position.
