Hello,
I am trying to configure my plane weight balance parameter in SKydemon but I think Skydemon works in inches and the data from my plane (a DR400) is in M.kg. How can we make it work? Is there a simple way? Here is the copy of the weight balance sheet of my plane.
Thanks to let me know how to configure it on Skydemon so that I can learn, do it myself for other planes in the club.

It doesn’t matter what units you use for ‘bras de levier’ providing you are consistent I.e always use m, 

Make sure that the settings>Change units>weight is set to ‘Kilograms’

Could you show me a screen shot on how to enter on the configuration screen of Skydemon? Thanks,

May I suggest you download the user manual and follow the steps in that?

It's all explained very clearly in there, Page 31 onwards, with screenshots.

OK I have enter the data as is and it is working, no need for conversion. It was so easy that I thought there was more into it. 
Again, Skydemon Rocks!!
