I don't fly Commercial types at all, but after taking this around the pattern (a very wide pattern), I'm going to keep it. I'm only keeping the KC-10 (It's from McGuire AFB after all, lol). The rest I have no interest in. Excellent job though.
Thanks CG for the HU!

Fire! Fire! Your pants better not be on fire....
Got the roll rate about right as well as the eyepoint adjusted and the mains contact points good. Just battling the nose gear height & compression(what a pain!). It's a nice model but regarding the KC-10, the boomers nest & mirror detail is missing and the general boom & drogue detail is low. I'm sure at some point there could be an update to this part of the KC-10 model to improve what is otherwise a very accurate model.
I'm going to keep working away at it.

To merge Tom's DC-10 VC in the Tristar, use eyepoint=89.1, -1.60, 11.34, and the usual model.cfg and texture.cfg tricks.

Okay, here's my landing gear contact point edits. Remember to back up your cfg file first.
Revised Contact Points which lower the model from sitting so high. Remember to edit out point.3 for the versions without the center auxiliary landing gear. This isn't perfect and some may have a different experience or issues that I'm not having with these edits. Some of the contact point gurus may adjust this better than I have.

The adjusted eyepoint:
eyepoint=89.5, -1.99, 11.34
And the revised Flight Tuning
You may also want to revise the flap drag scalar to have more drag when the flaps are fully down on approach as the plane seems a little too "slick" in such a draggy configuration.
