The main landing gear on this plane does not touch the ground when taxiing. One side or the other will be in the air. Is there any way to fix this in the editor? Also the wheels do not turn. Don

Don Edit the aircraft.cfg file for the[contact_points]point.0=1, 1.18, 0.0, -3.92, ...point.1=1, -5.48, -4.5, -3.75, ...point.2=1, -5.48, 4.5, -3.75, ...The 4th entry on the first three lines define how far offset the wheels are from the COG reference point. Make small adjustments until you're satisfied.I left the nose gear as is, and changed the left and right to -3.52...The wheels *won't* turn on this a/c.

But be careful not to change the original difference between main gear and front gear, as this will change the flight dynamics because the wing angle is changed.

So Karl, are you saying that you think that Bill did it wrong? Apparantly it worked for him. I would like to change it but am a little scared that I will screw up. Don

Don I haven't noticed any adverse effect on the a/c with regards to the default pitch angle, but if it is of great concern, simply adjust the value in this section:static_pitch=1.84 :)

OKAY you talked me into it!! I will do it. You are right I should take a chance once in awhile. Thanks for your advice. Don :-LOL

Don >If you are concerned about "screw[ing] up," then simply make >a copy of the aircraft.cfg file (such as aircraft.cfg.bak) Well, I guess Bill is pretty familiar with my changes to a 421B currently in the works. After I changed the wheel contact points in order to make all wheels make contact with the ground, it would require 150 knots before liftoff, and look a lot worse than a students first attempt ever :DFor our plane, the problem was the nosewheel where way high up in the air during taxi, so I lowered it. Guess what happened to the wing dynamics in the process...I didn't check what the default values were, just thought I'd point it out.Don't be afraid to experiment, you'll lern a lot in the process. But keep the original values commented for easy recovery.
