I am modelling the Cessna 210 for FlightGear, which has cowl flaps. I want the model to be as realistic as possible, and so, I want to know: how much drag do cowl flaps produce ? I could not find any data on this in the Internet.
Another airplane in FlightGear, the Cessna 182, has already cowl flaps modelled, and they cause an airspeed increase of about 20 kts. Is this normal ?
