    Default ATR 72-500, by F. Sánchez-Castañer Help!

    I have been wanting to fly a plane exclusivley, and this is the bird I love. Its got a perfect panel, a wonderful vc (not just bitmaps of a real cockpit lol) sounds, awesome propeller animations, you name it its got it.
    But I have a serious problem.
    Everytime I land, the back to wheels touch down no problem. But the nose gear goes into the ground, no matter how soft I set it down, even with 10% fuel, and when it goes into the ground, the propellers turn off and end of flight.
    Could someone please help me figure this out?
    I believe the file is fsca7510.zip on flightsim.com
    I really want to know how to get the nosegear to touch down or if there is a button im not hitting.
    Thanks!

    Open the aircraft.cfg file, and look for:

    [contact_points]
    static_cg_height=??.????

    Change the number for a higher number and see what it does. Hope that helps! If it doesn't help, then put the number to what it was before and try something else. I haven't done that in a while, but I believe this is the parameter that controls the height of 3D model over the ground (i.e a large number will show the plane as hovering, a small number will show it bellow).

    just tried adjusting the static height, didnt fix it.
    Its weird, like I touch down with the back landing gear, then i lower the nose gear, and it just goes through, and then the engines kill, but a crash doesnt register. I can still use what airspeed i have left and get it up again.

    this really sucks lol

    You have the old model. Go to avsim and d/l v1.01 that fixed this.

    Anyone know where there is a review on this pup? It will have to be pretty darn good to tear me away from the Meridian.
