So I have been having this problem for a while, and I am sure I’m just doing it wrong, but on takeoff for every plane, I shift to the right a lot, as soon as I lift my nose wheel up off the ground. Anybody have any proper procedure to fix this? (Probably sound like an idiot lol) I use the ERJ-195 most often
I used to have that problem, it really depends on the wind etc. But also can occur when wind is at a minimum.
I usually use a slight amount of rudder to keep it on the runway.
Is this due to wind? Or are you saying no matter the wind direction you veer to the right…?
I think what he is saying as he is accelerating, he veers off the runway. But I was just considering check the wind…
Yes, I tried it on solo with no wind, etc. I just veer off. I bet some of it has to do with wind though.
Are your alierons and rudder coupled?
Try practicing with slight rudder, practice makes perfect!
Sounds odd. Check the coupling. Check the calibration of your device, even calibrating slightly off center could make a difference…?
try on solo, no wind with HDG activated.
No don’t activate the heading that’s not the way to learn
Not realistic. Use slight rudder if it veers.
Coupling is on. I always calibrate as soon as I line up.
Un couple them and just use the rudder that will do the trick
Thanks, I will definitely do that as soon as I can!
Use yoke or little rudder as others have mentioned.
You can also set heading on your AP
Also, if you veer quite strongly to one side at a high speed, it’s time to take off.
Nope, it was the coupling! I turned it off and had a fantastic take off! Thanks @Brandon_Sandstrom
okey I tried it now but it still doesn’t work properly. With Auto-coordination off you have less intense veering off the runway but only to if the wind is coming at an angle of 30-50degrees max in relation to your runway heading. With crosswind 10kts+, not even full rudder extent can prohibit that. And tbh, if you are holding your device still with auto-coordination on it shouldn’t happen either. Device was always calibrated before takeoff. IMHO, this needs a fix with or without auto-coordination.
What plane are you in @LSZH34
