Engine Displacement in Cubic Feet?!

We are on SDK 15.0. The Aircraft Editor still displays Cylinder Displacement in cubic feet! (though it tells you to enter cubic inches) If you were to enter cubic inches in the Aircraft Editor, Save and Resync, I dare say your piston engine will have a little too much power!

I don't know of anyone using save and resync as it destroys your cfg formatting (this too should be changed) but please make this small change so that the AE displays your correct engine cylinder displacement.

Thanks, Don

Here is a screenshot to illustrate:

on the left you can see the raw engines.cfg and the correct cylinder_displacement of 101.2667

on the right we see the Aircraft Editor and the erroneously tooltipped value of 0.058603

and thanks to the power of Google we can see that:

AE is showing Cubic FEET not Cubic INCHES. This has been in since launch and we would appreciate a fix.

Hello.

It's being fixed and will probably be in SU7
