The only thing I can think of is the empty CG position.

Thanks for your input guys but none of these fudges should be necessary
ASOBO ? How about the following suggestion ?

Engine.0 = 0.0, -6, -0.05

ThrustAnglesPitchHeading.0 = 0, 0

EngineWeight.0 = 300 (lbs)

For all parts of the aircraft that are static, it just gets expressed in the empty CG and empty weight moi parameters. It would be a bit of convenience to have a separate parameter for engine weight like X-Plane but this is not necessary.
