Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

CG issues

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

yesterday I got the DC-8 and I wonder about the payload manager and the CG. I'll attach a screenshot, it tells more than a thousand words.. The CG is far to the back, it actually is higher than the stabilizer setting table allows it. 

 

All I have done was to install the aircraft and load it up. However I have to stick with version 2.0 as with the latest update 2.1 I can't move the stab trim. (I have written about it in the other thread). For what it's worth the P3D payload manager shows the CG well in the middle, even slightly forward. Looking at the payload stations it Station 3, 7, 12 and 16 in use. I can put all the weight of 13000lbs to the front cargo section to get a CG of 27% MAC. 

 

Is there something I miss??

You just need to distribute the weight so the CG moves forward into the range allowed.  It's how it's supposed to be.
