I've been working on an aircraft that has an offset leading edge and I accomplished the offset by using a 0 span section with a larger tip chord and the modify x/c variable to realign the trailing edges. Every time I open the file that section does not maintain the chord that was saved. (see below)

When It should load as follows:

Is there a better way to accomplish this? I thought about using 2 wings but realigning the second wing is very challenging.

Thanks,
Mike

This is a bug.  Can you provide the *.vsp3 file that does this?  Just this component, delete everything else.

thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob, I've attached the file. Section 6 is the Leading edge offset. The chords should be as follows. Section 6: R = 239.457, T = 245.767, Section 7: R = 245.767 T=118.03. The appropriate values are stored in section 5 and 7 I also the analysis of the wing does still get meshed with this tiny section causing the load distribution graph to go very negative at this location.

Thanks!
Mike
