Thread: Improve Ground Handling?

  1. #1

    Default Improve Ground Handling?

    Hi: Several of my favorite planes fly great but exhibit really poor ground handling...Is there a setting in aircraft.cfg that will improve the turn radius of an airplane, (make it turn quicker)? Thanks...

    Assuming no rudder pedals with brakes, set a control assignment to left/right brakes IN ADDITION to the standard brakes key.

    If you have brake pedals, post again with settings and specifications, along with what sim you are actually talking about (P3Dv4?)

    You could also change a parameter in the nose/tail wheel line of your contact points in the aircraft.cfg. The Steer Angle below is the eighth parameter from the left (it's the underlined 40 in the below line):

    point.0 = 1, -21.8, 0, -0.78, 1650, 0, 0.42, 40, 0.1312, 1.8293, 0.7, 0, 0, 0
