Why doesn’t my helicopter sit properly on the trolleys at Taieri for MSFS?

The trolley parking spots are designed first and foremost for the HPG Airbus H145, which is a model of the actual rescue helicopter used at Taieri, and Otago Helicopters were a big help to me getting this working well for their training simulator. But the recent beta 4 of the H145 has moved the starting position of the aircraft quite a lot, so it now sits off it's trolley... so to speak....

It appears that this was an error with the beta release, although HPG have promised to tweak the start position so that their two MSFS releases -- the freeware H135 and the payware H145 -- both sit comfortably on the trolleys when you start a flight. Actually, this may be partly my fault, as I did ask Otago Helis, who were testing the H145 for HPG, to talk to HPG about standardising the start positions for these two aircraft. It makes sense that all helis have a common start position, so that no matter the aircraft they all sit centrally on helipads and trolleys.

Once HPG tweak this I'll make any required changes to the start positions at NZTI, and release an update if necessary, but for the moment be aware that the current H145 beta 4 won't sit nicely on the trolleys when they are chosen as starting parking spots. Of course this won't affect your ability to land on a trolley, maybe one day I'll actually manage this...
