plane just takes forever to steer on the ground?

Postby TheBoogie » Sat Jan 06, 2018 2:43 am

hi, total flightgear noob here.
i've recently gotten back into using flight simulators, and it's been a challenge, but i'm doing well, with the exception of one thing.
i tried to do a flight, and during taxi to runway, the plane sluggishly responded to my joystick, running off of the tarmac and on the ground?
this isn't specifically just one aircraft, every plane that I have installed is affected by this.

however, once i'm in the air, i can turn and do whatever.
and i have auto-coordination installed as well, so is there maybe just some other problem? any way i can disable this?

help appreciated. :oops:

Try using the left and right brakes to steer when on the ground. Alternatively you can steer with a clicked and held down mouse.

Held down left mouse button controls the pedals (rudder). Another issue might be slow response. I've managed to speed this up by unchecking 3D clouds setting and other stuff that might take too much cpu/ram ...
