In the Contact Points section in the aircraft.cfg file, you can add your rudders. See the C208 Amphibian:&l;contact_points&r; //0 Class (0=none,1=wheel,2=scrape,3=skid,4=float,5=rudder) //1 Longitudinal Position (feet) //2 Lateral Position (feet) //3 Vertical Position (feet) //4 Impact Damage Threshold (Feet Per Minute) //5 Brake Map (0=None, 1=Left, 2=Right) //6 Wheel Radius (feet) //7 Steer Angle (degrees) //8 Static Compression (feet) (0 if rigid) //9 Max/Static Compression Ratio //10 Damping Ratio / Water Rudder Effectiveness (0=Undamped, 1=Critically Damped) / 1.0 = normal //11 Extension Time (seconds) //12 Retraction Time (seconds) //13 Sound Type //14 Airspeed limit for retraction (KIAS) //15 Airspeed that gear gets damage at (KIAS)point.0 = 1, -1.15, -5.250, -7.800, 1600, 0, 1.40, 30.0, 0.3, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.1 = 1, -1.15, 5.250, -7.800, 1600, 0, 1.40, 30.0, 0.3, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0point.2 = 1, -16.40, -5.250, -7.700, 1600, 1, 1.50, 0.0, 0.4, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 2, 0.0, 0.0point.3 = 1, -16.40, 5.250, -7.700, 1600, 2, 1.50, 0.0, 0.4, 2.5, 0.80, 4.0, 4.0, 3, 0.0, 0.0point.4 = 4, -4.00, -5.250, -5.600, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.85, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.5 = 4, -4.00, 5.250, -5.600, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.85, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 1, 0.0, 0.0point.6 = 4, -26.35, -5.250, -4.800, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.95, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 2, 0.0, 0.0point.7 = 4, -26.35, 5.250, -4.800, 1600, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.95, 2.5, 0.65, 0.0, 0.0, 3, 0.0, 0.0point.8 = 2, -12.90, -26.00, 3.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 5, 0.0, 0.0point.9 = 2, -12.90 26.00, 3.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 6, 0.0, 0.0point.10= 2, -36.23, 0.00, 0.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 9, 0.0, 0.0point.11= 2, -0.50, 0.00, -2.17, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 4, 0.0, 0.0point.12= 2, -38.00, 0.00, 9.00, 1800, 0, 0.00, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 7, 0.0, 0.0point.13= 5, -30.90, -5.250, -7.300, 1600, 0, 0.00, 50.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.00, 1.0, 1.2, 0, 0.0, 0.0point.14= 5, -30.90, 5.250, -7.300, 1600, 0, 0.00, 50.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.00, 1.1, 1.5, 0, 0.0, 0.0

Here is a little trick, if it applies to your situation:Open the cfg file with FSedit and locate the front float contact points (probably 2) and add 30 degrees in the space for steer angle. The plane will act like it has a water rudder and it will be active all the time so you don't need shift-w. You might spend a lot of time to get an actual water rudder to work right.John Woodward
