the tail skid needs to be edited in the data ini.try these numbers.

 

[TailGear]

SystemType=LANDING_GEAR

Retractable=FALSE

IsSkid=TRUE

HideGearNode=FALSE

ModelNodeName=Skid

ShockAnimationID=-1

ShockStroke=0.05

SpringFactor=1.3

DampingFactor=1.8

ContactPoint=0.0,-7.30,-0.53

RollingCoefficient=0.7

MaxLoadFactor=6.0

My response was so bad I felt guilty enough to go check the MFs myself and sure enough Farman MF7, Farman MF11 and MF11b dont takeoff.

 

Its been so long I might have already added Whiteknight's tailgear solution to the others in the two download packs and forgotten to finish the job.

 

Thanks to Whiteknight and Trotski00 dont forget to blow as hard as you can into the front aerilons while taking off for extra lift.

Cheers Grinseed.

ModelNodeName=Undercart L

ShockAnimationID=-1

ShockStroke=0.07

SpringFactor=1.3

DampingFactor=2.0

WheelNodeName=Wheel L

RotationAxis=X-Axis

RollingRadius=0.35

CastoringWheel=FALSE

RollingCoefficient=0.025

MaxLoadFactor=6.0

 

[RightMainGear]

SystemType=LANDING_GEAR

Retractable=FALSE

DragArea=0.00

ModelNodeName=Undercart R

DampingFactor=2.0

WheelNodeName=Wheel R

RotationAxis=X-Axis

RollingRadius=0.35

CastoringWheel=FALSE

RollingCoefficient=0.025

MaxLoadFactor=6.0

 

[TailGear]

YESSSSSS thats sorted it, the problem is indeed in the wheels, the original ini the rolling coefficient is 0.25......in yours it is 0.025 well whoda thunk it....all caused by a zero, cheers matey much obliged to ye sir
