Load manager not tallying with Aircraft payload and fuel screen



  • Hi,

    why is the load manager completely different to the A/C fuel and payload screen. as can be seen from this screen shot?

    Even using the load manager for a 0% fuel and payload it still loads 2732 Kgs into the aircraft.

    Also the default fuel screen says max fuel is 9418 Kgs, yet the load manager says you can load 10320Kgs. This is playing havoc trying to use Air Hauler 2 to get the correct payload and fuel.

    The fuel discrepancy will be addressed in the next update. The fuel capacity was altered slightly in a later build and the tool wasn't updated.

    The weights will differ as we have things like the engines that are configured as payload in the FDE to provide more realistic performance.

    Hi @Martyn will we also be able to set KG as a default in the aircraft for the FMS?



  • Hi,

    when the loadmaster is updated will it reflect the payload that has to stay onboard, (the engines etc) as in total there is 2024Kgs excluding the crew etc. which is another 308Kgs?
