How to Set up Tiller (nose wheel steering)


Recommended Posts

I have a registered version of FSUIPC Version 4.26 and I just transferred to a new computer. FSX is working great and FSUIPC is installed and working great.

On my previous computer I had a CH joystick control the tiller. I can't find in the manual the exact configuration to do this. I know I pick "steering Set". I tried many different attempts, but the nose wheel is not turning. I remember a trick with the parameter value but don't remember what exactly to select. I searched the internet as well and can't find the graphic of the nose steering set up. Any advice?

That's fine, but version 4.26 is years old and I cannot support old versions. Please update to the current version (4.70). You don't lose any settings, it just gives you an updated module and documentation, plus many new facilities and fixes.

I know that with FSX Microsoft added a steering control, but I've never tried it so I don't know if it actually operates the nose wheel on aircraft. I wouldn't really be looking at the outside when trying to taxi in any case.

I've always assigned my tiller to the "steering tiller" control in FSUIPC (using "direct to FSUIPC ..."), which really is just another rudder control, but one which you can calibrate differently, so to give possibly more control. When both the tiler and the rudder are assigned and calibrated "direct to FSUIPC calibration", FSUIPC balances the actual rudder control between the two -- whilst on the ground with an airspeed of less than 60 knots (adjustable by parameters) the control is gradually transferred from one to the other.

I assume that for FSX's own tiller you assign to the "Steering Set" control, but you'd need to calibrate this in the Windows game controllers, not in FSUIPC, as it doesn't include coverage for that axis. The "steering tiller" calibration in FSUIPC is for its own steering till axis just mentioned.

Where are you finding a problem?

Regards

Pete
