-In the real F18 fighter jet the board computer schedules the flaps and slats according to the airspeed and [[aircraft:​tmd:​airfoil#​angle_of_attack|angle of attack]]. Above 250 knots the flaps only deflect a little bit during very tightly flown corners and only below 250 knots they will deflect more significantly to improve lift.+In the real F18 fighter jet the board computer schedules the flaps and slats according to the airspeed and [[aircraft:​tmd:​airfoil#​angle_of_attack|angle of attack]].
