Heading Error Problem Enquiry

Postby angryminister » Sat Jan 14, 2017 12:42 am

My team is working on using JSBSim to create a flight simulator, with the aim for similar results as Flight gear. However, during taxi and takeoff, its been found that there is a strong tendency for the aircarft to yaw strongly right. I have done alot of research on possible reasons, including aerodynamic, structural, wind effects. However, I now suspect it is due to the software, more specifically in the programming of the Autopilot. I have found that other people have had similar problems, and think it has something to do with the heading error function in JSB Sim. I know this is a longshot, but has anybody else found this/know how to find a solution?

Please give more details. E.G. If the aircraft is a high powered propeller fighter, such efects are normal.

Also, what does the autopilot have to do with taxi and It is rarely used in those flight phases.
