Hard to Taxi

Recommended Posts

If I load a 777F with a ZFW of about 425,7 and a short range fuel load (about 11%) and a TO2 rating, I find that it takes almost full throttle to get the thing moving.  It also takes forever to get moving on the runway, even with TOGA.  Does this sound right?  I calibrated my brakes in the sim with a null of 5.

Nope.

Check that your brake axis is "reversed" (there's a check box).

Also, be sure you aren't using any camera add-ons that add in some sort of "camera shake" feature, specifically EZDok.

At least this reduces the brake action

I again calibrated the bakes and reset the axes.  All seems OK now.
