Sensitive ruddar pedals

Recommended Posts

Does any one know how to properly reduce the sensitivity of rudder pedals ? In the Dukes -both of them the 60 and the turbine , I have the pedals and brakes and yoke set with FSUIPC in P3Dv4 and have the slope scale down to the bottom -5 for the pedals, but man are they sensitive and taxing it's very hard . I'm not one to play in the aircraft conf. file but is that we you set it and if it is where and what numbers are used ?----Thanks Louis

You can adjust the effectiveness of the rudder using

rudder_effectiveness=1.0 under the  [flight_tuning] entry in the aircraft.cfg file. Max setting is 2.0 and min is 0.1 

I sort this setting out before I adjust the slopes in FSUIPC.

The other setting you can adjust is found under [contact_points] 

point.0=1, 2.4, 0, -3.9, 1181, 0, 0.523, 40, 0.15, 2.5, 0.808, 3, 3, 0, 176, 220

This is the nose wheel setting and the 40 in bold is the angle in degrees that the wheel can pivot left or right this also can be adjusted to suit taxiing effectiveness. However, this will also affect the aircraft turning radius. Change this as last resort. I have seen some aircraft as high as 75.
