FSX/P3Dv1.4 -- Steering tiller

Recommended Posts

I config a tiller from SIMQUIP with your system .


 The tiller is working fine , but not when pusback  !!


You mean the FS pushback? I think that isn't dependent upon the rudder, which is what the FSUIPC tiller uses. Same probably for other pushback programs. I think they use a method akin to slewing.

Your soft "steering tiller" is working fine only advancing, not retreating : correct ?


It acts like the FS rudder control, because it is using the FS rudder control!


Since FSX there are steering controls built into FS itself:






That last will be like an axis control, using the parameter -16384 to +16383.


FSUIPC doesn't use these newer controls in order to maintain compatibility with earlier simulators and folks' settings, but by all means try them. However, I'm pretty sure that FS's push-back is artificial, like slewing. it isn't very likely to be steerable.


If you have enough reverse thrust you can get some aircraft to move backwards. The rudder/steering might work then, though the added resistance will probably stop the reverse motion.
