    Default Auto rudder off and ground steering control

    Hi, I would like to know how to steer the aircraft around if the auto rudder is off. I know I could do it by the brake either right or left but there`s should be a way to do it other than this one, it would bw better when I am landing.

    I appreciate, Claude

    Hi Claude,

    You can control rudder separately, and of coarse that's the more realistic way to fly.

    With 'Auto Rudder disabled you can control the rudder in 3 ways -

    (1) Keyboard

    (2) Twist your Joystick (rudder axis)

    (3) Rudder pedals

    Hi Claude,


    (1) Keyboard -> (number lock OFF)

    Rudder Yaw Left = Num 0
    Rudder Yaw Right= Nun Enter


    (2) Twist your Joystick (rudder axis)

    (3) Rudder pedals

    Now I know why. My joystick does not twist. It is a old one.

    Thanks a lot

    I have an "autocoordination" gauge installed on all of my panels, as I don't have rudder pedals! It enables me to steer the aircraft on the ground with my joystick, and then switch the autorudder off when I'm ready for takeoff :). I switch it back on after I've landed :).

    Download "rcbsl-10.zip" from the flightsim.com library and install it on all of your panels :).

    I discovered the " 0 " and the " ENTER " button of the key pad whit the numlock off are steering the airplane as well.

    But the best is the joystick with the rotation axis.

    have nice flights, Claude

    Just got a yoke and would like to steer the front wheel with that. Is there a way to make it so the yaw axis controlls the front wheel while its on the ground? I think real planes can do this without relying on the rudder controlls to steer while on the ground. Just doesn't feel practical and ergonomical to always use the rudder controlls to steer the plane when on the taxi way.

    The yaw axis control IS the rudder pedals in real aircraft and in the sim, although some large aircraft use a tiller handle in the cockpit to steer at low (taxi) speed when on the ground, but most just use rudder pedals. It does take practice, though, to get used to it, both in real life and in the sim, especially for people who drive a car (most of us) due to what is called "negative transference," a fancy way of saying that you're used to a steering wheel to turn and now you have to get comfortable with using the pedals.
