Dreamwings Dash 8 bouncing

Recommended Posts

I posted this over at the Dreamwings forum, but it's a little quiet.. so, if it's ok I'll ask here..I installed the Dreamwings Dash 8 --100. 200. 400The 100 and 200 bounce when sitting on the runway and during the take-off run-- the front gear bounces anywhere from a little to the entire plane bouncing/pivoting around the main gear like a seesaw on speed. :>)Does anyone have a suggestion as to what might be the problem? The Q400 is fine.Thanks

It's a matter of the ground contact points in the aircraft.cfg file. Don't have the details at hand, but as I recall there was a fix posted in the Dreamwings forums.Jim Harnes

Thanks Jim for the guidance to that thread on the DW forum. Turns out that was about the Dash 8-400- BUT I spent a couple hours reading it and trying a gazillion changes to the -400 cfg and learned a great deal.And thanks JP for the cfg changes. perfect...SUCCESS! I have no clue what all those numbers mean, so I'm really grateful for the help of someone with so much more experience than I have.Best wishes to both you guys.... :-beerchug
