Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
I've been fltsimming since FS2 so well experienced with FS but new to the Design World. Prepared to learn like everybody and not just post loads of questions, so going through the Tutorials and trying to learn myself but there is one bit I can't understand as follows. In the intermediate exercises I've created my first aircraft and if I say so myself she looks great for a first attempt but for the life of me I can't get her sitting on her wheels in FS9 even though I've placed the bottom of the wheels firmly on the X- Axis as per the other lesson with the Stop sign, so the X Axis line in FSD 'appears' to be in the wrong place. I've got my aircraft sitting on the ground now but trial and error i.e. keep saving the project at different heights until it sits right but the X Axis line marker is way above the wheels in FSD, even then though with the curser held on the X Axis datum line the pointer at the bottom of the screen shows it to be -0.033ft, to get my aircraft sitting on the ground correctly the bottom of the wheels had to be moved down even further to -3.722ft. So I can't go by the X Axis datum line in FSDS and my wheels are apparently 3.722 ft 'underground' in flight sim but looking good in flight sim. I have FSDS set to ft and Flightsim set to ft so I don't think it's a conversion problem.
Any assistance would be truly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
