Steering wheel

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to implement a steering wheel in the NGX? I'm using the keyboard and a joystick, no special hardware...

 

Thanks,

I tried the FSUIPS and it's ok... But I limited to 8 degrees the movement of the front wheel through the rudder pedals (which is the aproximately the real value), and the steering tiller is also limited 8 degrees now. Is there a way to make the rudder pedals to move the front wheel only 8 degrees, but also a steering tiller able to move the front wheel 60 degrees?

 

Thanks,

Yes, by advanced mixing logic it is theoretically possible to make rudder axis send equivalent of 8° nosewheel deflection to FS, gradually strengthening to full deflection at some 70-80kts (aerodynamic rudder is effective).

 

However, I have no readymade solution for you.

Its easier than having to use FSUIPC, I just installed another controller.a steering wheel. Program one of the buttons for autorudder on & off... Turn it on to taxi...turn it off before takeoff (if you wish) Depending on settings, sensitivity and taxi speed... it will turn very good. I have it next to my saitek controller on the left using it as the tiller :)

Also my trim wheel is another asset:
