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

I know.
I know that originally there was a pitch down.
I know that it was brought to our attention that it should be a pitch up.
I know that the conventional moment is pitch down.
I know that ED acknowledged it and is changing it.

Who I'm talking to is the sloth-speed ED defenders that are still stuck in second gear defending the wrong simulation behavior because they defend instead of investigate as that is their mandate, not you.
