I have come up with an idea to help us get a better control of our braking and rudder movements.
As we all know, both rudder and braking are handily controlled with one thumb on the bottom right of our screens. This is cool and works a charm, however, there are two limits, which the proposed feature hopes to address succesfully:
1/ when braking, it is hardly possible to read the braking force applied, since the thumb is on the part of the screen where that value is displayed;
2/ when applying rudder as to control crosswind for instance on a takeoff run, there is no displayed value at all, whereas it would actually be usefull to make sure we adjust the rudder correctly as per the crossway wind.
I think that, while the control itself works perfectly, there is a way to make it altogether more effective by displaying both braking power % and a new rudder angle % in the top right corner of the screen, right above the actual brake/rudder control place.
I have alas no way to draw it nicely, but I am sure you can visualize what I mean here.
This would be cool in my view to be able to use a constant 75% braking, for instance, without having to guess what the value is under my right thumb…
I would also appreciate to be able to learn for each plane what percentage correction of the rudder is required for, say 9, 13, or 20 kt crosswinds.
These would make our experience even better than it is now.
Now lets vote and/or discuss!
