Recommended Posts

I can only speak with a little bit of authority here without more detail, but as for the Cessna and any other prop driven airplane, it will pull in the direction that its prop turns if uncorrected.

Hi Bob: Propeller aircraft with propellers that rotate "Clockwise" when viewed from the cockpit, WILL Pull to the LEFT when "accelerating" down the runway on takeoff. This requires the pilot to ADD Right Rudder to keep the plane on a straight path down the runway. The further down the runway you get during takeoff, the LESS rudder will be required. This is true in real life as well as in the Sim. SPOFF

HIt numpad `5` (with caps lock off). It's the centering controls command.Also, wind can veer any aircraft. Are you sure you don't have a crosswind component?Allcott

Me, too. I find the settings sliders don't work like I think they should. Try starting with zero dead zone and full sensitivity. Then, reduce the sensitivity a little at a time and test if this works. If you get sensitivity down to zero, add some dead zone, use full sensitivity and test it again.

If so, then obviously they work as they should, becasue you have probably check the `reverse controls` box to make the toe brakes work, yes?So now, what was FULL sensitivity is LEAST. Same for null. I have posted on this before as it is NOT the same kind of `reversal` as applied by control software such as FSUIPC or CH Manager.Allcott

I am referring to all of the hardware control sliders in general, but not the graphics sliders. My toe-brake system is jury-rigged from some racing pedals, so it's not what most people would choose to use.What you say is correct, though, especially about FSUIPC, good post!Jeff ShylukAvsim Product Reviewer
