I have a question about how to fly with the turn coordinator in the C172.
If I’m correct, to maintain coordinated flight, while in a turn, the pilot should apply a little bit of rudder pressure in the opposite direction of bank to avoid the potential for skidding or slipping. Or into the direction of bank… I get mixed up.
The main point is, in IF, when I apply rudder in either direction, I can’t get the ball in the center no matter what I do. The aircraft seems to do fine flying uncoordinated, but I would like to gain practice with rudder coordination.
Can someone please explain either what I need to do to, or, if the turn coordinator in Infinite Flight is even functional?
Not sure what you mean I think you mean if you are turning left you want to apply right rudder?
If so then no you want to see what the ball is doing and quote on quote step on the ball. Long explanation on why if you are turning left you want to use left rudder but tell me if you want the explanation and I can tell you
