TDS 737 front weight problem

Postby william21 » Fri Mar 01, 2019 6:37 pm

I have downloaded couple TDS 737's and they all seem to have a problem of having LOTS of front weight, any suggestions? i have tried to move all the weight as back as possible but center of gravity doesn't even even get to the middle...

I had the same issues with a version of the TDS 787 and talk to a guy that was part of the design team.

Very good information. I seem to remember the back wheels lifting off on a TDS model. I will try to remember which and try this.
