I’ve noticed something pretty considerable on the both 747 variants on Infinite Flight…
Landing in crosswinds in a 747 is fairly easy for me to accomplish, but there is just one thing that irks me a lot, and it’s that wing / engine strikes are very likely to happen. I’ve seen that after I touched down, even making the slightest roll for corrections makes the wing / engine strike the ground.
I know it’s likely for this to happen in real life, but I’ve realized that it occurs very much when I try to land in crosswinds in the 747. It’s unrealistic for it to be happening this frequently.
I knew it couldn’t be just me… So I decided to inspect the 747. What I found is that the height from ground to engine in IF has to be at least a foot lower than in real life, and I have these two pictures to compare:
Infinite Flight (realize how low the engines are to the ground, especially the number two and three engines)

Real Life (realize how the engines are considerably higher than the ones in IF)

This may be pretty small, but I think it can be implemented very easily. In this mobile simulator, maximum realism is what I strive to see, and that is why I’ve made this request.
