Gear contact points

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Hope someone with more expertise than me might be able to advise! I had a question regarding gear contact points for the PMDG 747 - generally the gear looks pretty good on landing, but one of the niggles I have is that when the rear wheels of the bogies touch down, the contact point is slightly below the ground, which looks a little odd. I've never really noticed it before but it's only because I'm trying to capture some footage for my youtube channel that it's become an issue. I realise this may be a limitation of FSX (I don't know), but I wondered whether there is any way of improving this at all? The vertical reference points for the contacts are presumably for the bogies when in the horizontal position, so changing them would only raise the aircraft off the ground once the bogies had levelled off, which is not what I want. Are there separate reference points to determine the point at which these rear wheels are making contact with the tarmac?

 

Here is a pic to hopefully illustrate what I mean:
