drop-down box. A new section will appear below the drop-down box.

below the drop-down box. It is important that the aircraft supports the same number of flap positions as the aircraft (and panel) in Flight Simulator uses.

corresponding boxes. V1 is the decision speed of the aircraft; above this speed you will probably be unable to stop the aircraft on the runway. Vr is the rotation speed; at which you should raise the nose to lift off the runway.
