Tilting bogies

Recommended Posts

I did use the search function and found no topics on this but I'm sorry if this has already been discussed. I'm a long time looker just never posted and I must say that the queen is looking superb. The only question I'm having is does it have tiliting bogies. I know a few Freeware companys made them and LDS said the 767 does have them (but it's barely noticable) and I just think it would be great to see those 747 bogies tilt. -Konrad Dlugowski

Oh, I see. We will have to wait for the beta testers or PMDG people to answer that one. Andrew

Hi Konrad,Yes, the the PMDG 747-400 has tilting bogies, and yes, they are animated so that they stay flat on the ground, and tilt when the aircraft is rotating, landing, and even when the airplane leans forward while braking. The mechanism behind the tilting bogies is rather complex, but the result is a smooth and fluid, realistic animation.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/for...s_Animation.gifBest,Vin ScimonePMDGwww.precisionmanuals.comhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/devteam.jpg

I don't like the way LDS 767's landing gear works. When you flare and the main bogies touch the ground, they instantly become flat, and stay up in the air until you're fully on the ground. It looks a little weird, just like the PSS A330/A340 series...

i have to confess, this little animation made me think it was an edited video from a real-life take-off.Now i am really convinced.All the bestHolger

>Thanks,>>JeffReferring to how the main wheels hang at an angle when they're down but not touching the ground. Look at Vin's animated Gif file a few posts up.

Looking at that Airliners.net pic I realized something weird. whats the deal with that ERJ in the background? It has gear up so it cant be landing but its not a nose up attitude, so what is it doing?

I think it's probably taxiing and the wheels are blocked by the weeds/grass in the foreground. Besides, if it were landing or taking off, it would be doing so in the opposite direction of the 747 - something that isn't likely.-Jared Smith
