Yes she works well in P3dv4 :thumbsup: But having the same ground handling problems as Joe. Differential toe braking only works slightly The best I can achieve is several hundred yards radius :lol: Can't find this tail wheel radius thingy
Edit: Ok I found it. 8th parameter, point 0 Works even better now :thumbsup:

Sorry Joe, real life has got in the way recently, so not had much time for FS stuff.

No problem Dave, not trying to rush you, just curious.

Only just read this ! , try giving a blast of throttle as well as full rudder & toe brake - Tiger Moth technique with tail skid on grass (less the toe brake bit)!

I've altered the tail wheel angle and added a differential brake entry to the aircraft.cfg. Works fine now.
Also added the gunsight reticule to the VC as well as basic TacPack functionality.
Fixed the electrical problem with the radio & GPS and added a [radios] section so the ATC will work. ( Needed for P3d)
I'll upload the revised packaged later.
