I used the X-30 experimental aircraft for a while a few days ago and I reached and altitude of 8+ million ft (the altitude indicator on the HUD surpassed 999,999 ft 8 times). When I went back to flying normal aircraft (Cessna 172, Boeing 747, etc) the altitude readings I got from the HUD, Radio Altimeter, and Analog instruments were unrealistic. When I started each flight with an aircraft, (at 0 ft AGL) X-Plane said my altitude was 27,000 ft AGL. Then, when I start to climb after takeoff, the Altitude readings go down as if I'm descending, and do the opposite when I actually descend. Is there anything a can do to solve this problem?

PS: I'm using X-Plane 10. 51 on a 2012 MacBook Pro

Did you reset QNH?

Please check the settings for barometric pressure, etc. You can try moving or renaming the entire preferences folder to restore defaults to see if that fixes it as well.
