Taifun Ground Handling Problem


Sgunard

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm having no joy with taxiing the Taifun. It resolutely refuses to turn on the ground, either with rudder or differential braking. I've tried Shift G to unlock the tailwheel but this doesn't make any difference. I'm using Thrustmaster pendular rudder peddles and I have no problem with other default or addon aircraft. Also, is there no parking brake? The Taifun wants to roll forward at idle. Any ideas, as I otherwise love the Taifun, and so want it to work properly!

Hi,

It's been well over the 12-24 hours and still no support. I've tried starting the aircraft by Checklist instead of Ctrl-E, (Ctrl-E doesn't work with the OrbX Edgley Optica, which goes mental if you start it that way), but no joy. I've also checked the Control settings for the pedals, and removed the gamepad I use for the external camera, but still no improvement. Some help would be appreciated!

Thanks for coming back Nico.

To answer your question: Rudder. I don't fly the heavy stuff, only GA, so never use a tiller.

I thought I had the solution today, as I had a vague memory of setting the tailwheel lock to a switch on my Honeycomb Bravo throttle. However, using this didn't make much difference. I can turn for about 30-45 degrees but then the turn lessens and I'm back to being straight ahead only, as it won't carry on the turn.
