View Full Version : Minor problems

I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but the Yak-7's axis of rotation is off center (it is farther back than it should be). This is a minor yet irritably noticable problem and should be corrected. Anyone else notice this? I'm curious because I have never heard even a comment about it, and I think it is quite glaring. It is the reason I never fly the Yak-7 (apart from it being pretty crappy).

Also, in many planes not all levers/knobs are animated for mixture, magnetos, superchargers, etc. It would be nice to have these all animated, don't you think? Just wanted to point these out.

EDIT: Arrrrrr....sorry about all the edits...forum bug

Axis of rotation? There are three axis on an aircraft all controlled be the three main controlling surfaces, which one are you reffering to??

All three. The axes (if you prefer) are placed further back than in the other aircraft. If you do a hard turn in the Yak-7 you might see what I mean (from external view only I find).

Major proof: if you go in the object viewer, select Yak-3 or any other plane besides Yak-7 and then select the Yak-7, it will move forward considerably. That is because the planes are centered in terms of their axes of rotation in the object viewer.

I don't know how else to describe it. Turning center? Movement center?

Okay, I know what you mean, so the axis controlled by the aelions is okay since it goes from nose to tail. I guess the other two can be determined by flying the aircraft.
I haven't noticed if there are any similarities between the FM and the object viewer and have to withdraw from the discussion.
