Katana load vs FSX load

In order to balance the Katana (in order to prevent the plane from pulling to the left) I added a passenger to the plane using the Katana options menu. However, lately I have that terrible pulling to the left again... So just now in mid air I opened the FSX payload option: the pilot was 50 kg (I had it at 70 in the Katana menu) and there was no weight for a passenger. Apparently the two systems do not work together (like most systems of the Katana are standalone).

However... I decided to see what happened if I changed my weight to what it's supposed to be and add a passenger in that FSX menu. Immediately the pulling was solved! So the FSX payload menu DOES influence how the Katana performs...! :blink:

Now I am left wondering how the two payload systems work together. Or not... Maybe I have to use the FSX payload option everytime I load the Katana...?

I have the same. Call it the "Preload-Problem". Recommendation: Whenever you start go first to the Preflight / Payload. Then right doubleclick in one of the three squares. Thats it. The old weights ar there again. Two pictures. One, with the red circles, shows the status after reloading a stored flight. The second shows it after right doubleclicking in one of the squares.

for me it's no problem at all

before flight right click to occupied the seats

after flight unoccupied it...

if you want exact same weight -> in the data.cfg you can add the correct values (notepad++)

You are right, it's not a real problem. First, after I got the plane, I expected that a payload weight which is stored will be back when I reloaded the flight. I was not used to go the Payload every time to get the stored weights back... Now, I am used to that procedure.

Aaaaaaaah!!! Great, thanks! I also thought the payload was restored automatically...! I just started a flight and went to the Katana loadscreen, 'loaded' the passenger and it's COOL now! The pulling to the left is gone now! Very nice.
