Is anyone having problems when you try to turn your rudder and it’s doesn’t turn?
Hey there, welcome to the IFC!
Could you be a little more specific about the conditions under which the rudder doesn’t move, please? Are you trying to move the rudder during pushback, or perhaps you’re using a network controller?
Hey hey welcome!
Make sure you’re not pulling down on the rudder while turning, it activates your brakes.
That shouldn’t affect turning ability though, just slows you down.
Are you talking about the rudder brakes or something else? From my experience I am not able to turn anymore when I reach 0 knots. Could just be my bad memory though so please forgive me if I’m wrong.
Is your Auto-coordination ticked? Double check in the IF settings and untick it if it’s ticked.
You are correct, you can’t turn when your ground speed is 0 knots because, well, you’re at a standstill. However, when you pull down on the rudder controls to brake, you see the box turn orange (meaning brakes are engaged); and you can also feel and see the plane slow down, which is why Adam and I doubt that braking is the cause of the issue OP is experiencing.
I also have learned to sometimes get some forward momentum and the (sharp) turn, because at a standstill it is really hard (if not impossible) for some planes to start rolling when you are trying to make a sharp turn. C-17 and C-130s are known for this characteristic in IF if my memory stands correct.
