    Differential brakes on push back

    Hi Guys,

    Being new to this wonderful piece of software, I have one question to which I can't seem to find the answer. On push back, as soon as I start the second engine, FSX decides I have differential brakes applied, and starts pivoting. After pushback, it is impossible to taxi as the brake seems stuck.

    Is this a calibration issue? If so, it is odd that is manifests itself this late. I have calibrated according to the manual I could find.... I have good quality rudder pedals, so I don't think it is a pot issue in the toe brakes.

    Thanks,
    Boaz

    Just a guess: perhaps your second engine starter also activates one of the brakes. Best you can do is to check any assignments in the FSX and/or FSUIPC controls.

    Re: Differential brakes on push back

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks for the reply It is a think to check for sure, but I don't think that is the issue. I am using the full pedestal from Skalarki with the profiler, so I don't think this would be the issue. I will check though.

    I am myself leaning towards a calibration issue with the errors around zero...
