That really wasn't the question, though. Also as per the latest patch notes, the pitch down upon extending flaps has been resolved.

I'm afraid that's impossible since there wasn't anything wrong at the first place, that's why you suggested that I'm wrong. I just hope they fix real life planes too, since when using flaps planes get this tendency to nose down, man was I wrong it always thought flaps are for increasing lift.
