Drifting off runway while landing

I did one singular test with the A350 but with a massive crosswind (30 kts) and I could clearly notice the difference between landing stabilized and coming in at 170+, especially regarding the rudder response.

However, I have just read through the topic and at 7 knots I think you’d have to do entirely nothing for it to make a difference - and that would just come down to longer spent above the weathercocking threshold.

That’s the base info I was going by. Which I tested before commenting to make sure the effect still occurred according to my memory.

The 7kts is paired with:

I’ll try the following a bit later, but I honestly think that this is outside the scope of the op’s question and does not justify the prior name calling.
edit: My apologies, I deleted the part here because what I referred to was my mistake.

edit: I tried with the A350 but I forgot your mention of 170+ kts, so I couldn’t really see it yet. After a necessary errand I’ll test more fully.

I just went back and tried this again. I think there was more yaw response at 170 than 140. I assume we’d agree that would be a logical modelling (more pressure of airflow etc.). But for landing, that seems to become irrelevant. At 170+ for landing it is a challenge to get it down, especially with low load like at the end of flight. Basically in the range of 0 pitch to negative pitch. So, the nosewheel gets in the way (and all that would imply) and the landing feel is just overall wrong.

Sorry for the late reply. It’s usually all aircraft, although I’m a little better at the 737-800
