Exponential Rudder

A lot of people seem to be having trouble taxiing since the exponential was introduced to the rudder control. It often looks jerky as they try to execute turns. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a way to disable it?

I think having an exponential setup in the air is helpful but could it go back to linear when on the ground?


There is no way to disable this as far as I’m aware, they added it so taking-off would actually keep you on the centre line during crosswinds.

For the part about looking jerky, that’s most likely because people are tuning with their rudder too fast.



People will also learn and get used to it… I was struggling at first too!

It is also real life procedure for GA usually. It takes a little time to get used to but it is rewarding in the way you can control your plane on the taxiways and while taking off.

Short and precise movements of the rudder are the way to go. I don’t slide the rudder past 2/3 of its range very often.
