View Full Version : Taxi bounce problem...

Hi guys, i apologise if this has been mentioned in the not so distant past, but i did a forum search on it and it turned out with nothing.

I love this game to bits, it is probably the best thing i have EVER bought. Of course, every good thing has it's faults but one little thing that has progressivly niggled at me is the way some planes bounce like mad whilst taxying. Even on a grass runway at 20mph i've had a spitfire turn on it's nose. (ok so spit notorious for this in real life) But i have noticed it with other planes too. So, what's the deal with the uber bouncy tail wheel and is it going to be addressed in any future patches?

really the only way to stop that is to taxie slowly to runway and then slowly apply throttle. i know its annoying, especially in A/C with shortbased landing gear like Spitfires, P-40's, 109's, just have to take it easy.

I recently have been having similar issues.

Read this thread on correcting for this behavior. It should apply to other ploanes besides the P-40 as well grass strips.
