I was wondering, what the correct and/or allowed speed to taxi is, especially from a realistic/historical point of view.

I wish the ground bounce would be fixed on some of the aircraft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I taxi between 30 and 30 km/h

Rule of thumb was :

Taxi as if your braking system were about to fail. How far could the aircraft roll to a stop safely by it's self with no brakes?

also, you might consider getting a throttle with a rudder control on it... i got one recently and boy do i love taxiing now!

basicly, map the brakes to the rudder control on the throttle... in the centred position you're at 50% brakes, so when you're not on your throttle its like a parking brake... squeeze right to progressive brake up to 100%, squeeze left to release and taxi. give you instant control at all times of exactly how much braking you're using, which coupled with rudder and the fact you're on the throttle gives you complete ground control. even better, at 50% brakes the planes NEVER nose over, least none of the aircraft ive tried it on yet, so if your're uneasy about that you can just let the planes stop themselves, but more quickly than coasting.

also.. on landing, if you leave the brake at 50% on landing instead of releasing it, you dont bounce at all, even if you land pretty hard. you just plant straight on the runway and come to a halt. very good online when you want a fast, safe turnaround time (that last bit is somewhat unrealistic, but i cant be faffed with the slow trim for landings, im too busy watching throttle, nose angle, flaps, gear etc.

I usualy taxi at about 100km/h TAS. I'm only kidding lol. Betweeen 20 and 40 km/h
