I hv 2 questions regarding ground handling in FSX.
1. Any clue how to maintain a constant taxi speed in a 747 or 737? I mean without throttling up and down constantly. I tried using the autobrakes on but was not too happy with it. I'm sure there must be some proper way of doing it.
2. During a pushback every aircraft's kneeboard suggests pushing 1 or 2 for turning left or right. But it never happens! Wot is the right way to do this?
1. You just have to play to get the right amount of thrust. It's like driving a car, you can't say "Push the accelerator 2 inches to go 30MPH". Either that or get a taxi panel so you can set the speed.
2. You have to hold 1 or 2 for a good few seconds for it to take effect.
About the pushback, it usually works out for me. When I got to pushback I press SHIFT+P, release the keys and quickly press 2 (you can press it several times to make sure it does turn).
For taxing, i would suggest using autopilot for speed.
