Hi!

 

I would like to know if it was a trick to allow planes to make a U-turn when taxying on the deck. Some can as the Crusader but for the major part of them, they want to bank suddenly on the side when on full crosswind and finish destroyed. Even the new Tomcat do that. Assuming it was maybe the rudder drag i reduced the Cdo at low speed, changed gears damper, tires friction but nothing works. Does anybody have any hints? (This stupid thing make me crazy since years...)

Be careful on the deck - at some points the jets will sink into the deck and even spin - bit annoying - whatever defines the deck area needs to be increased.

Sure not sir! There's a plenty of space available on all direction but a lot of planes cannot handle the crosswind blowing on on their side. they are able to do a u-turn only if the carrier speed is low enough, around 12-15 knots no more. Maybe i should just be happy with a good trap an hit the Esc key on the centerline. But i ever want more...
