No, the FDM doesn't care about anything but commanded flap position - which 
will be taken
to actual position through the FCS, but with JSBSim actuator dynamics are not 
required to
be modeled. Commanded and actual positions are in degrees. As I said before, 
does 30
degrees flaps (when the maximum travel is 60) corespond to an actuator 
extension of 0.5?
Probably not. Does it matter for animation purposes? Probably not, I guess.
