Well thats an easy one and you can do it yourself. Go into the aircraft file, and look where they have the passengers
loaded up. You will see large number in the main cabin. lets say in the rear section they have 11,000 pounds of weight.
Just change that number to say 5000, and that will take the cg farther forward to balance the plane. Or go to the file in the aircraft when you press alt. Scroll to Fuel and payload. The same numbers will be in there. Always take out frojm the tail forward, as you do not want to fly a tail heavy aircraft. Also if I am only flying about 200 miles I take out some fuel in the center tank such as 70.0. Taker out fuel in center tank only. Let us know how you made out. Hunt,type,change fly.

if I have understood correctly, after selecting the Airplane in FSX I've to change the passengers and load disposition, well I've done it but it doesn't change a lot the GOG is till il the front of the airplane, I think to fix this issue you have to enter in the cfg file and I'm not expert enough to do it.

Tell me which 717 you have so I can look at it. Make sure you are in the category weight and balance. If you take weight
out of the weight and balance you must take it out of the gross weight also. I mean you adjust the gross weight, otherwise it
wont make a diff on how it flys.

If its the same one from Rikooo wow!! Looking at the seating. You know sometimes I wonder where some of these
programmers get their info from. This guy is so far out of context I cant believe it. 500sin seating in the front, and 5 to 7000
for seating in the back. According to that when the plane leaves the ground it should start skidding on the tail on the ground. For
about 25 yrs I built and flew 1/4 scale RC aircraft. The cg had to be on the money otherwise when it took to the air you lost about2-5 thousand dollars. The other thing I complain about is brakes. You will see brakes=00056 or 1.0. even with reverse thrust you will never stop the plane landing at 140-`150 MPH. 717 has to be a minimum of 1.70. You also must chance the maximum weight also.
