    Darren,

    Try this link:

    https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showt...ntinental-DC-3

    It looked as if they had quite the conversation about taxiing the Gooney Bird in this one.

    Hope this helped,

    Alan

    The real key to happiness with the DC-3 and the other old taildragger twins is dual throttles. Once you can use differential power, it's very easy to taxi.

    Hello,

    Nice and easy indeed when you have a hardware quadrant for control ... with mouse or keyboard the results can be not what is desired

    What DC-3? What sim? Are you using the tailwheel lock/unlock feature?

    First off, this post is 10+ years old and, mikeandpatty, I would say your suggestion would have been the first thing the OP should have checked! I doubt Darren would have this same problem today, as he's not the one who brought it up again for discussion!
