Really difficult to enter holding

Recommended Posts

I find it very tricky to enter holding. After passing the fix and turning outwards it is extremely tricky to intercept the radial.I'm supposed to make standard rate turns but great departure is needed if I'm to intercept the radial.Should I start a standard rate turn after first passing the fix or should turn steeper to compensate for the longer initial turn?One reason for my problem I suppose is that since I'm flying a Cessna it's always a very short distance (<2 nm) to the VOR fix which makes the needle sensitive.Will it be easier in a faster plane.It's the soloflight enter holding lessons I practice. Both with the standard and the realair (direct parallel). I'm using FS9 CH Yoke and rudder pedals. This make keeping a standard rate turn tricky.Maybe most tricky in the realair. Is this normal?
