Need help : nosewheel jets wants to steer to the left

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,Since a week I have issues with my jets.When steering in front of me ( calibration is 0 in FSUIPC ) the nosewheel slightly turns to the left.The moment I try to correct this behaviour the nosewheel immediately turns right.In this way I cannot taxi in a straight way.From the 5 times I am running FSX 4 times I have this isse.So sometimes no issue.I never had any issues with the Cessna at all !First I thought it was because of the VRInsight hardware I connected last week ( mcp / cdu / Hat Track ) .Because form that moment on the issue began.But even after uninstalling the hardware the issue existed.Letting FSX rebuild another cfg file did not help.My Yoke is from Saitek + extra quadrant.The quadrant I disconnected, but no diference.In the calibration utility from windows Vista and in FSUIPC ( everything has been calibrated ) I can see that my yoke gives no signal spikes.I am really puzzeled here and all suggestions are welcome.

This happens to me too and I believe I read somewhere that this is a known problem in FSX/FS9. When I take off in a F16 or F18, I slowly move the throttle forward until I build up some speed and that seems to help a little. It has been discussed before so you might find some posts that may help you.Jim

I finally found it :The Hat Track movement can be stopped temporary and for that I used the Insert key.I did not know that the Ins key has the same function in FSX as the Numlock 0 key, which is : RUDDER ( JAW LEFT ) ............ :(

In most cases, what happens is that you have a multi-assigned control to a particular function (as you have discovered), or, you have differential thrust/brakes that impacts the yaw.If you have FSUIPC, I found the steering mapping in FSX is quite useful is making ground steering behave a bit more than rudder alone. Also, I wouldn't test this with multi-engine turboprops as the simulator's engine has a lot of trouble with those - so controls mapping and calibration is best done with another type of aircraft.Etienne
