Let's do it this way, seems to work:

@D-ECHO:
The first image shows the menu to define the contents of the fuel tanks as well as the passengers and cargo. If something is set, window closed and reopend the window shows like it is in the second image. After correction things work. Is it possible to have a stable definition of passenger count and cargo in the first run?

The third image shows the angle piece hanging out of the aircraft.

@Josh: I realize you already have changed the fdm in the git. I'll give it a try.

Flight plan: EGLL to LIMC (Milano). Fuel load: 6.000 lb. Had to land at EDDR (Saarbruecken) with remaining 500 lb in the end, => fuel consumption way to high.
Flying was very nice, no swaying along any axis, neither with nor without yaw damper.

Hi Oswald
Glad to hear the FDE is okay. I make some further tweaks in a few days.

I used the existing engine. I will take a look at the fuel consumption.

Kind Regards,
Josh
