Like many of you, I was also pretty excited for the 772 rework… Especially the gear tilt while landing. I got the update but when I finally tried landing the 772 I realized that gear tilt was pretty disappointing. See below: Please note that both photos were taken at the same timing.
1- This is what gear animations are like in IF.
2- This is how it is in real life.
What happens is that in real life all main gears gradually touchdown even when the nose gear is still pointing up and hasn’t changed position after landing.
However, in IF, first half of the wheels stay pointing upwards after touchdown, which causes the nose gear to get pulled down to support the weight.
I don’t get why everything is so detailed on this aircraft but the gear tilt/animations is poor. Please tell me if I get something wrong. By the way, do not get me wrong, I really do appreciate all the work that was put on to it by the Devs, I love it!
