How do I stop rudder from engaging differential brakes?

Recommended Posts

On both the default Cessna and the Cirrus, if Im trying to taxi around and Im using rudder to turn the nosewheel, the differential brakes will get applied and it stops the plane from moving so I have to full throttle and get moving and then make a hard turn.  Im using a joystick and the twist is only set to 'yaw' - no mention of toe brakes but it does it anyway.  can it be stopped? am I using the wrong settings?

Is it the differential brake or the wheel model resisting to the full rudder turn tho? I am not sure

Well I don't know the answer to that but I did just discover after posting my question that toggling nosewheel steering helps a lot.  The planes will turn with nosewheel steering on or off (I guess that's how you say it) but toe brakes get activated much more with one setting than the other.

Now I can do a 180 with the Cessna :)

thanks for the reply though.
