T7 pulling to the right during taxi

Recommended Posts

Noticed during my first 2 flights, yet to make another, but so far I've noticed the aircraft pulling to the right during taxing.

Asymmetric Thrust Compensation is on, and the N1 values for both engines were the same.  

Could I be missing something?

Watched it from the outside, saw no deflection.
But, I will try recalibrating anyway, once I get back to my PC.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that.
But I thought that effect would be very subdued at 15 knots, this is a fairly strong pull to the right. I'll double check though, try it with all clear skies.

This could be created by a crosswind component against the tail. This presents a very large 'sail' area to a wind.

 

Bingo.

As Richard mentioned, you have quite the sail on the back of your aircraft.  Add in a little physics (torque increases with an increase in arm length - your tail is at the end of the "arm") and a poor FSX ground contact model, and you have what you're seeing.

 

Try it without weather and report back.

No no, this is after start and taxing to the RW.

Will do.

What i do to prevent pulling like that is to  assign a button for Yaw (center ailerons and rudder)  and just hold that to keep u straight while taxing  default button is NUM PAD 5 I think

see if that helps you
