Nose wheel steering angle

Recommended Posts

Pete, Hope you had a good holiday.


I'm using Windows 7  x 64, FSX, SP2, and Level D 767. I'm using Saitek yoke, rudder and throttles and a MS Sidewinder Joystick set up to control the nose-wheel steering using FSUIPC v4.9 direct to steering. I've calibrated the steering to give full travel left and right and tried various settings for the steering slope.  The rudder pedals are also calibrated in FSUIPC direct mode and all FS axis functions are disabled. All works as expected except for one thing!


I can't get sufficient steering lock to carry out a 180 degree turn on the runway without running onto the grass. In real life, (twenty years ago) this was always possible with care and a some power on the outside engine.


Is it possible to increase the steering angle of the tiller? I've had a good look at the FSUIPC User Manual and Advanced Manual and can see nothing obvious, but don't understand offsets (if these are involved). Nothing in other posts seem to cover the steering angle. I understand that the tiller really controls the rudder, so the actual rudder deflection can't be altered, but would love to be able to do a 180. I did wonder if altering the "SteeringTillerControl=0" in FSUIPC.INI could be the involved.


Level D suggests that I alter the steering angle but makes no suggestion as to how I do so. If you can suggest a way, I'll let them know.


Cheers, Pat Manley :razz:
