There are many influences on the front steering in addition to that mentioned
above. Improper fuel tank placement and loading as well as gear positioning
can effect steering. Also, make sure you are testing without wind. If your
design prevents the front wheel from touching the ground (too much weight in
back, improper wheel height) that will also prevent steering.
If you are using fs2002 then the settings are in the cfg file (which overridesHey all,
Could someone please help me by telling me how to change how reactive my front
wheel steering is? Atm my plane rolls down the runway and refuses to turn even
a little bit, which means I go on to the grass if the aircraft isn't pointing
directly down the runway. I have seen many other aircraft where you turn and
even at 60-100kts the aircraft is steerable...
Also, is there away to make the aircraft pitch down when the flaps are raised?
I am using AirED but I can't find any properties that change the above?
the air file) and can be editted using fsedit. For steering go to Gear and findthe center gear, change its steering angle. For flap pitch go to Flaps and
adjust the Flap Pitch Scalar.
For pre-fs2002 make sure that '1004 Landing Gear/Steerable' = True. For flap
pitch use '1101 Flight Dynamics/Flaps Pitch Effect'.
