Small FSX Request (Nosewheel Steering)

Recommended Posts

I have a small request for FSX if it's not already there:I request true nosewheel steering for large a/c (steering that is not coupled to the rudder).That said, I suppose extra key assignments would have to be added for the tiller.Thanks,Bryan

For me the sticky points with the nosewheel is following:1. I still don't know how to disconnect the rudder from the nosewheel to perform the rudder tests (if it at all can be done). So your request for "true nosewheel steering" is the same thing I suppose.2. Correct yawing of the aircraft when pushing back. If you reverse in a small prop and you turn the wheel, the aircraft still moves backwards (and for pushback).3. When turning around while taxiing the front gear sometimes looks like it is slipping forwards and not actually turning the aircraft from the nosewheel (a dynamics problem).Thanks

This feature already exists (in FS2004) in the form of the Project Tupelov IL-62 !-Paul :-)

Also use differential braking to help make the turns.

I use an Autocoordination gauge on all of my planes. It allows me to diconnect the nosewheel steering from the rudder :)
