Im using FSpassengers and coming in for my landing i droped my flaps to 5 Degrees and my copilot said the flaps are frozen, is there any way to unfreeze them wile in flight or am i stuck this way?

I don't have FS passenger but normally you can't unfreeze flaps in flight. About all you can do is to re-select them. I would execute a go around/missed approach, recompute my Vref for flaps 5 and confirm runway length is adequate. Smile

In FSPassengers, your flaps are frozen when you extend them at too high an airspeed. They won't budge.

I know that happens but you hear them break and the plane vears left or right and have fun trying to land that, i made it but it was one hard landing, but this was it was forzen i could retract or extend they would start then stop and go back so i know they worked and i was below the max speed i could use them so they were not broken.

I'm assuming the FSP report didn't include anything about the flaps and that the failure was due to something else. I've had landing gear I've had to cycle a few times to get down and locked, but I don't recall flaps getting stuck.

I have done this before, by accident, so I just declared an emergency and landed the best I could. It was hard landing but it was better then crashing haha.
