TailHook handle variable issue

I can't figure out how the A:TAILHOOK HANDLE variable works with "toggle tail hook handle" Hotkey.

1. I have made [TailHook] sections in the aircraft and systems configuration files.
2. Connected cockpit tailhook handle to ASOBO_HANDLING_TailHook_Lever_Template

As a result, i can see the tailhook handle switch animation by using "toggle tail hook handle" hotkey, but the variables A:TAILHOOK HANDLE & A:TAILHOOK POSITION do not change at all (can observe in simvar watcher)
Also i can set A:TAILHOOK HANDLE but it seams no any influence on tailhook handle animation.


Please help me to handle this issue

Expected result: "toggle tail hook handle" Hotkey should switch A:TAILHOOK HANDLE variable

Thank you in advance

Hello @GKS_Dev

This is being documented for SU10. Here's an extract from the doc:

Without those 3 interaction points defined, the tailhook will not work properly.

Sylvain
