Most of the time I've been playing this second gen IL-2 I've been starting on the runway, engine hot, ready for takeoff. No big deal. Recently, because I've been joining multiplayer servers where you need to start up the engine and then taxi out before heading off, I've been forced to taxi (not a bad thing either ). This is where I've been discovering that I have some issues.
I'm perfectly able to taxi the Bf110, Ju87, Yak-1, IL-2, and MC.202 just fine but the Bf109 has been a problem. I tried with the E-7 through G-4 and the E-7 and G-4 seem the easiest but I've had trouble with them all.
The problem is this. I power up, I get rolling, I make a turn using about 20-30% throttle, brakes on/off and rudder. The rudder seems to have no effect and then suddenly it has full effect and I'm doing a spin on the ground. I'm obviously doing something wrong or missing something here because others are telling me that taxiing the Bf109 is easy. Maybe they have rudder pedals with differential toe brakes? I've got a HOTAS and a stick so this might be putting me at a disadvantage.
