Hi!

I have a problem: after changing my fuel or weights via default "Fuel and payload" dialog, the plane starts to bounce. This is also happening after landing.

I'm using P3Dv4 and the latest VC-10 SP1.4, but this problem was also present in SP1.2

Glad to see I'm not the only one whos having this issue, I believe its a contact point area issue with the config thats not been optimized propperly so I'll be having a look at that later on when I get the chance and optimize it abit more.

Very strange - not something I've seen at all through testing and I can't remember it being reported either. I've just made a quick vid of what happens for me going from max AUW to empty payload and 30% fuel:

As you can see, there is no bouncing like you appear to have, just a sedate rise owing to the lesser weight! It's the same going from empty to heavy weight as well, except (obviously) it settles lower.

That was filmed in P3Dv4.2 at the default KJFK airport.
Cheers,
Paul.

It's happened to me from the first time I installed it and I've had to literally spend 2 hours editing the aircraft.cfg to prevent it from doing this. I've managed to solve it but now the wheels are slightly sunk into the ground which doesn't bother me concidering it bouncing up and down was 10x annoying.
