Default POS12 install with G3X and VP system in a 9

I am going through the same issues others have in this older post. I have tried 2 different mounting positions for the POS12 and I can either get the flaps to go about 25 degrees down and up tight or not all the way up and to about 30 degrees.

I believe it is the way I have mounted the POS12. Because the flap bar goes up on an arc, the travel is not uniform. I haven't been able to make it work successfully you. Anyone have pictures of how they mounted their POS12? I have seen a hinge used and a ramp. I tried both and still my system does not work properly. Once I get this done, I am ready for the DAR!

Default Maybe

I seem to recall reading in a thread that you want the end points less than full travel. For some reason, 80% seems to be what I recall, leaving 10% on each end unused...

I will give that a try. I have been trying to get max travel and that may be a mistake. Making the travel uniform is harder than it should be - at least it has been for me!

My POS12 is attached to the arm of the flap actuator as well. The arc of the arm doesn't matter sense the configuration settings in the G3X are for a voltage you set specific to your installation. As was said, don't try to use the full range of the POS12.
