What is the PROPER Nose Up attitude for the 747-400? It seems to show 15 degrees up-pitch at level flight. Can this be changed in the aircraft.cfg file?

Not sure which 744 you're flying, if it happens to be a POSKY, simply adjust the Fuel and Payload prior to TO.
The default 744 shouldn't have that kind of attitude.. I trust you've tried trimming?

Umm...

Sorry to take so long to get back to ya, Tailhook! I was referring to the default 747. It gives a nose up attitude of 10% at level flight. When AP is engaged, trimming will not work. I'm looking into the ac.cfg for any pitch values. Thanks for the ear to bend!

The attitude is correct and realistic, especially at high altitudes or at lower altitudes and low airspeed(10,000 ft at 250 KIAS).
