AS OF VERSION 1.13.17.0 ASOBO HAVE FIXED THE FLAP ISSUE. THIS IS NO LONGER NEEDED. HURRAY!

IF YOU HAVE THIS INSTALLED, PLEASE DELETE THE FOLDER ONCE YOUA RE ON 1.13.17.0

----
Asobo sadly broke the lift dynamic for all planes in the latest World Update III.
They accidentally added parts of a new flight model which means all planes currently have twice the amount of lift that they should have, this can make it really hard to land some planes, or make it feel like they are floating.

Please see the post here:
Flight Dynamics Bug Details - Community / News and Announcements - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

Asobo mentioned the work around for now is to decrease lift_coef_flaps by 2.
However not everyone is a super technical with this stuff, so I have done this for all standard aircraft (the Deluxe / Premium are behind DRM so I cannot fix them).

I have tested and it appears to be reacting similar to before the update, so I think this has worked. 

Compatability:
Its not compatible with any other aircraft mods like the A320NX or TBM930 Improvement or Working Title CJ4.
It is compatible with the Working Title Garmin Mods.
You can make it compatible yourself quite easily.

  • 1) Open up Packages\Community\community-flap-hotfix
  • 2) Open up layout.json in your favourite text editor
  • 3) Remove the entry for the aircraft you have a mod for (make sure you remove from the first { to the last } including the comma.
  • 4) Save the file
  • 5) Go to Packages\Community\community-flap-hotfix\SimObjects\Airplanes
  • 6) Remove the folder for the aircraft you remove in the layout.json

Video Tutorial:
Making the hotfix compatible with other mods - YouTube

This should make it compatible with any mods you have, however please note that those mods need to ensure they have reduced the lift by 2x or will have the same problem. 

How to install:

  • Download the package
  • Put the folder community-flap-hotfix into \Packages\Community\
  • Please ensure to remove the folder on the next Sim Update

    Thank you for following up with us and confirming this.

    Just to be extra clear. Once I delete this from my community folder following the March 2nd update, please confirm that I do not need to delete any aircraft folders or do anything else as I would have if I personally manually changed the .cfg files for each aircraft?

    When flying the TBM earlier, I felt it did not stall at the right speed when landing and was still floating down the runway too easily which is strange as I had removed the fix from my community folder.

      Correct, just remove my mod from your community folder and that is it, unless you've modified anything outside the community folder yourself.

      'AS OF VERSION 1.13.17.0 ASOBO HAVE FIXED THE FLAP ISSUE. THIS IS NO LONGER NEEDED.'

      Did you even read? It doesn't work because it's not supposed to or needed.

    I just had another go at installing your fix package, this time following your instructions to remove aircraft I already have mods for, and I can happily report success. No more CTDs!

    Thanks again for the fix!

    Its not compatible with any other aircraft mods like the A320NX or TBM930 Improvement or Working Title CJ4.

    So I have gone into the community folder and made the respective edits to the flight model cfg - assuming this is what I have to do?

      There's a video in the description I made which explains what to do 😊

    So far I have just found that TBM930 Mod also needed halving the drag_coef_flaps to 0.0922 and is perfect to nail ILS G/S.

    Seems to be working great so far! Trying to fly traffic patterns at KSBP with the Cessna 172 is when I noticed they broke something! I could not get the thing on the ground(realistically). The plane was floating like it was made out of balsa wood during my approaches! Added this mod and the 172 feels right again. Thank you so much for the good work!... Did they break all aircraft with this update? I haven't tried any of the Carenado ones yet since the update.

    Thanks. Way easier than having to do each one myself!

    Add me to the list of CTD experiencers. Using version 1.2.3. Yes I have other stuff in my Community folder ( C208, G1000, G3000, GX, WT CJ4) but I don't want to remove them as I like them.

    If I copy your changed flight_model.cfg files over the ones for the respective aircraft in the Official file tree (after first backing up the original files, of course) and not install your folder at all, they work just fine.

    Thanks for providing the fix files for each aircraft in any case!

    Thanks for doing this. It made this a lot easier than individually finding al of these.
    Asobo needs to allow proper beta testers before releasing anything, apparently.
