Request For Previous Ground-Handling Post

Recommended Posts

Guest mistral2

Several months ago a thread was posted with solutions to tail-dragger handling problems (lack thereof), principally Cubs. A great series of solutions was provided by a member named "farmer", which I failed to print, involving a/c cfg scrape-point changes and some air file changes for the FSD Super Cub 180. I have searched for this thread, using every subject I could think of, and have yet to find those posts. Several more recent inquiries about ground-handling for tail-draggers refer the writer to the solutions by "farmer", without providing the reference location. I have found that searches of these forums have a kind of "Christmas Morning Surprise" element in the results; a search for "Ground-Handling", for example, often yields interesting threads for "C-130 Textures" or "What Do You Want In FS2010". So could some kind soul please direct me to this exchange by "farmer". Thank youmistral2CFI-Glider

Are you trying to turn "on" the tailwheel steering?yes, that is in the "scrape points" settings, in the aircraft.cfgfile. I didn't know you could do that until I saw the thing in the docs for the D-18 beech. So after I did it, I did most all my taildraggers, as I prefer the steering "on". As an example for the piper cub:This is the 1st line in the scrape settings. Note the "60.0"in that line. Change that to 45.0 and it should work I think..point.0=1, -15.00, 0.0, -1.05, 1200, 0, 0.238, 60.0, 0.300, 2.5, 0.20, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0Will look like this after changing...point.0=1, -15.00, 0.0, -1.05, 1200, 0, 0.238, 45.0, 0.300, 2.5, 0.20, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0That *should* do the trick, unless I'm forgetting something...MK
