I know how far the pedal travels in total, and I know about how much I have to push, so I can make an educated guess using the property. Of course, I'd have to take a tape measure to find out the travel for 100%, but that isn't possible while flying :)

I will make my suggestion and propose it when I've got a moment, been very busy with schoolwork lately.

Kind Regards,

PS: I mentioned each time that I had real experience.

I've told this many times for over a year... I was ignored.

i've seen videos where it looks like they can spin the aircraft on a dime. On the land as well. Maybe it is technique, maybe it is limitations of the simulators FDM.

That would probably be asymmetric braking on land - it allows for a further 20 degrees of nose wheel steering beyond the ten degrees from the rudder pedals, allowing tighter turns?
