When I upgraded to 11.35, I got the new fmod sounds for B737... full aircraft name is the laminar - Boeing B737-800...problem is that the flaps no longer have any sound, any suggestions?

Hi laconnell

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but could you confirm if you are referring to the flap operating lever inside the cockpit, or the wing flaps themselves?

If it's the flap operating lever you are referring to, then having checked my version of X-Plane 11.35 and the default Boeing 737-800, then I am hearing reassuring clunking noises from the flap lever.

Having said that, I did need to go into X-Plane 11's sound settings to increase the internal cockpit volume, in order to hear the flap lever properly!

If I use the lever with a mouse I hear the click. If I use a joystick axis I get no click when the lever moves.

But in either case the flaps themselves make no noise now when moving and no there is no wind noise anymore when deployed.

Spoiler still makes sounds correctly, just not flaps..

Flap sounds work in the king air c90 and the beech barron b58, they just don't work in the B737
