Cessna 140 Weight & Balance
- I'm using MSFS together with Air Hauler 2
- I manually adjust crew & cargo weights for the Cessna 140
I noticed while adjusting the weight loads in FS that the aircraft only has entries for Pilot and Co-Pilot positions with defaults of 150 lbs each. Quiet often I have to up the load weights for cargo loads from AH2. My only option is to put all of the cargo weight in the Co-Pilot position.
While flying the aircraft I would have expected a lot of banking to the right due to excessive wgt in Co-Pilot seat area. I found this not to be the case. So, I looked up the weight distribution settings in the "Flight Model" file and found that both Pilot and Co-Pilot load positions are exactly the same and both of them located on the cabin center line.
I can guess at it, but would like to know if it is setup like this for a reason other than making it very easy to keep the flight model flying straight and level.
