Cantu EMB-120 contact points.

Recommended Posts

anybody got a set of revised contact points for the landing gear on Eric Cantu's great Embraer 120? The nose gear is slightly off contact with the ground, which means that if you slew the airplane, it takes off like a bat outa ####. (FS9 thinks its airborne.)Just needs a tweak or two, but Im not so good at that stuff.Happy new year.Eric

I have not examined the contact point yet but in the meantime after you have slewed to where you want to be - make sure you are on the ground and then press F1 and then unslew, it will solve your problem. Its sorted out my slewing problems with some other planes I have.
