>can you provide more details on what you are doing to get>that condition pls>>John>PSS SUPPORT>support@phoenix-simulation.co.uk>>http://www.avsim.com/pss/phoenix.jpgJohn.Well its under every conditions.. When we depart (lift the nose up) and when we land with the nose up in air.It's not floating when all the wheels is on ground, but only when the main wheels are still on the ground.With every weight to.The same was with the RC1 release.CheersStian

Erm..As you see in the picture above.. The main wheels are floating a bit above ground when the front wheel is in the air. The main wheels should NOT be floating at that point at all, they should be on to the ground. You got it now ?..CheersStian

Yes, I've noticed the wheels don't touch the ground, especially when the weight of the a/c is low, such as the end of a flight or a shorter flight requiring less fuel.To point out another problem I've seen, the T/C and T/D are inaccurate when the range is changed on the ND. Let's say ND range is set at 40 miles during a climb and T/C is at the 20 mile ring, change the range to 80 miles and the position of T/C will not change on the screen. It will remain at the same spot on the screen indicating the T/C is now 40 miles away. VS remains the same, moving runway adjusts accordingly but T/C indicator is off by 20 miles now. It's the same with T/D. Change the range of the ND and T/D indicator will remain in the same spot on the screen.-Ely

I agree with the contacts points. Even parked in the gate the wheels specially the front one seems to be slightly floating. This needs adjustment. O/W this is a solid wll done plane. Carlos :)

Guys,There are so many different setups both of systems and the way things can be run. I have to admit that when I saw the screenshot the first thing I thought was "Beautiful livery" and then "lovely shot of this aircraft just about to land/just taken off."The point being, even with a picture I missed the bad contact points. Like John, I don't see the floating but then Im usually landing in the dark ;)Rest assured we are not all sitting back watching the world go by. We listen to the feedback, good and bad, and will use it to make the 777 even better.What I would ask in return is for people to understand its very important to give as much detail as possible as soon as possible.

are you telling me sir that the aircraft should float under ANY conditions????Fine - take your default loadsheet, add 60000 pounds of cargo to point 1 and load 40000 pounds fuel. this is about the load and fuel onboard after a short flight KJFK-KMIA.And a forum of sequential messages is no comparison to a roomful of people sir, and I do not appreciate that tone with a paying customer - 19 GBP can buy a significant chunk of my week's groceries sir. Laughable perhaps but that's life in the developing world.Thank you.regards,Markperhaps it's my LDS a really excited user logo?XPHomeSP2/FS9.1/3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

Hi guys :)I do love the T7.. Amazing job !!!But i do hope that you fix the contact points for the wheels. They are floating above ground when we are rotating and landing...I really hope to see this to be fixed !.. Think others think the same as me :)Stian

Thanks Stian,I can see the floating as much as you can in the screenshot but without knowing the state at the time (was it static / landing / taking off) then it *could* appear to be deliberate - ie the shot was taken with the aircraft in the air.This is further enforced when you see the pitch of the aircraft.So my question is simple:Was the aircraft static at this time or what was it doing?

>Was the aircraft static at this time or what was it doing?Well.. it looks like the aircraft is either taking off or just landed. Main gear are still on the ground but they're floating over the runway.I have the same problem, hope to see this fixed soon.

Norman,The same 'floating' issue was acknowledged by PSS in the RC1 release, and said to have been forwarded to the beta forum (paraphrase). The only reason I personally even (succinctly) pointed it out is because I therefore assumed it was a known minor issue that understandably slipped by in the crush.It happens even when the aircraft is static. In my case I have 'fixed' it with a slight mod. Surface contact now looks good to me at any weight, and I've noticed no ill effects, but admittedly other than gear points I know too little about contact point entries generally to even dare advise anybody else.regards,Markhttp://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a319/markrey/lsd2.jpgXPHomeSP2/FS9.1/3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

Sorry but I'm still not seeing anything close to the picture of the Malaysian livery?I do exactly the following, load the 777-200LR, default settings for loadedit, full fuel, in spot view the wheels are nicely touching the groundAdjust the fuel load using the Setup panel to 50%, same thing, wheels are touching the groundRepeated same for the 200LRF and 300ER, no problemsSeveral other testers have tried the same procedures with no problemsJohnPSS SUPPORTsupport@phoenix-simulation.co.ukhttp://www.avsim.com/pss/phoenix.jpg

Mark,I do recall it in preview and to be honest, even then I saw my wheels firmly on the ground. *Inserts scratching of head type smiley*
