I am trying to get the Cessna 152 W&B from the flight manual into Skydemon.
First I don't get it why Skydemon only offers a weight vs lever arm model, while a lot of W&B flight manuals have a weight vs moment model. But ok, lets just divide the weight out of all the flight manual drawings and hope for the best....
Unfortunately once I was finished, the Skydemon calculations did not match my manual calculations according to the Cessna flight manual. For debugging purposes, I set all all the weights and fuel to zero. So I was expecting to find the empty weight in the W&B chart.
But as it can be seen, the W&B charts shows 539,8 kg as takeoff weight, while the empty weight is actually set to 545,5 kg.
Am I doing something wrong / am I not getting something here? Or is Skydemon not able to calculate W&B properly?
