ingame my rudder makes my plane go to the left. when it's on the ground.

I have a Ch pr pedals for my rudder and they dont detect a problem with the calibration(have the problem for the last week or so).


Any tips to give where the problem might be?

Did you just install the latest patch? There has been a significant change in torque effects with 4.01. Before you start your takeoff roll try dialing in a little opposite rudder trim and locking your tail wheel.

There are two causes of aircraft going left (or in some cases right) on the runway other than calibration issues:

Slipstream from the propellor. The air driven backwards by the propellor travels around the aircraft in a spiral and hits the vertical stabilizer on one side, pushing the nose of the aircraft the opposite way. You need to use quite a lot of rudder to compensate.

In bad weather (rain/snow/thunderstorms) you have a crosswind. This will push the tail of the aircraft around as well. To compensate you'll need brakes, opposite rudder and a bit of throttle.

Tell the AI that. I love the new FM but I hate the fact that the AI are already experts. I have to learn all over again. I haven't flown for 9 months and have a new stick. I feel I've gone back in time, say about 4 years. Even the AI call me "noob". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Tully, would I be right in assuming that with the new flight model the stick settings are more important than ever?

Also, is there a detailed guide somewhere about setting the stick? I've seen many postings but none that made my stick work well. I'd like to know what each bar represents so I could figure out a setting that suits me. My stick is extremely touchy. I have the Saitek Evo.

I've had trim "on a slider" since the original Sturmovik but have only in V4.01 considered tampering with the sensitivity for trim.

BenvZijl:

Turn off engine torque and wind, if that resolves the issue, it's not a controller problem.

Now take off is easier but once you are airborn do you have to fight the rudder to fly straight?

Locking the tailwheel will help on the ground as well, assuming your aircraft has that feature.
