Me and my team were working on a short animation and I need precise details on the following if you guys can point me to a website or answer them here it'll save hours off my search cause Google isn't helping much.

  • The different stages of the flap extension with their degree of rotation.

  • The maximum degree of the ailerons going both ways

  • The maximum degree of rudder both ways

  • The maximum the elevators can go both ways

And as a big bonus can you provide me with the landing gear specs as in how long it takes to extend, retract, open the great doors and so on? Or a video of an actual F-15C retracting and extending would be great. Not one of those mini-prototypes.


Aileron: +/- 20 degs

Horz. tail: 26 deg up, 15 deg down

Rudder: +/- 30 degs

  • $\begingroup$ @ReubenX believe flaps are 0 to 30 degrees, but not 100% sure. $\endgroup$ – Invariant May 20 '19 at 6:42
