Default Turbine Jets

Hi Guys,
When balancing a Turbine Jet does the header tank need to be full or empty, Main tanks empty .
Look forward in comments.

Also, depending on where the main tank(s) are located in relationship to the CG, you may want some fuel in the main tank(s). If the tank(s) is forward of the CG you may want to have some fuel in the tank(s)when balancing.

I typically will add fuel in jets since you always land with a certain amount and tanks are generally forward of CG. If tanks are on cg as long as its full it wouldnt really matter but full slashing back and forth will change cg.
UAT always

Agree 100%, specially if the tank is forward of the CG since we always land with some fuel.
