YASim _sets_ those offsets based on its own configuration. I think this is a problem of data ownership -- who "owns" the location of the cockpit? I argue that it's the FDM, since it's the code responsible for other issues of aircraft geometry. But then the model wants it too. I dunno. Maybe the sane thing to do would be to put the cockpit location into the model file, and work really hard to insure that the coordinate origin is identical between the representations? Yanking this out of YASim is easy. Beyond that, there appears to be an axis mismatch somewhere. I verified that the code worked with the old viewer (the 747 cockpit was high, the 172 slightly to the left, etc...), but things might have changed since. We really need to write up a "coordinates bible" that defines, once and for all, the conventions we're using. :) Andy -- Andrew J.
