Dash 8 Taxi Speed

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some help for a Dash 8-400 taxi speed problem. Curious if there are entries in the aircraft .cfg that could help this problem.With engines at near idle and props levers fully forward, the aircraft wants to taxi at 30+ miles and hour. If I pull the throttles to idle, that aircraft slowly comes to a stop. So its either 30+ or 0 on the taxi speed. The high idle/shut off levers do not seem to have any affect other than shutting down the engines. Are there any settings in the .cfg that would slow down the taxi speed but have no affect in flight.Thanks, SD

When you taxi a Dash 8, the speed is not controlled by the throttle levers but the prop pitch (feathering etc.). You need to leave the props on idle and use the prop pitch lever to control the aircraft's taxi speed. Hope this helps!
