Crash when fly_by_wire_from_flaps = 1

If I set "fly_by_wire_from_flaps = 1" the aircraft crashes the Sim. The aircraft in question doesn't have flaps but even if I give it a Flaps section in the Flightmodel.cfg it continues to crash.

Im trying to set "fly_by_wire_from_flaps = 1" because the aircraft loses control authority 50feet above the runway.

Is there anything else that need to be done to allow it to work?

Hello @kcgb

I was able to reproduce the crash editing one of our aicraft but only once. I see what the problem is (flap system not being created but being used), but I was not able to identify what causes the flap system to not be created.
When you don't define flaps, the system should still be created but configured as if you had no flaps.

When does the crash happen in your case? Building the package, selecting the aircraft, starting a flight?
If your package triggers the CTD 100% of the time, I'm interested.
