Hey all,

I recently bought a Vans RV7/7A. Taxiing is a real b!)#( cause it doesn't
turn worth a hoot. When using the backup (Shift/P) and I shift/p to stop,
the nose wheel wobbles back and forth 2 or 3 times but does not turn with
the rudder. Is that fixable? ... to get it to turn normal like?

If you will cut and paste the text of its aircraft.cfg file here I can look
at it and see if the nose wheel steering is fixable.

The nosewheel in an RV7A casters freely... at low taxi speeds you steer
using differential braking.

That's what I was afraid of. I would rather fly the 7 instead...I like tail
draggers but I also want the extra instrumentation...autopilot...you know,
the wife's always callin' me and I gotta run for a couple minutes and I
don't want to pause or I won't get my flight done before I gotta go
somewhere else :) 

Thanks

Dallas,

Tom Young says that's the way it's supposed to be but I'd still be
interested in making it connected to the rudder.

Here it is.

Thanks

description=The RV-7A is a kitplane designed by Van's Aircraft, one of the
most successful kit companies in the world. It is a high performance,
two-seater, single-engine, low wing, fixed gear, all-aluminum taildragger
with excellent cross-country and aerobatic capabilities. The RV-7\/7A is
designed for much the same mission as the RV-6\/6A was. However, it accepts
Lycoming engines from 150-200 horsepower, giving the builder more options.
It uses many parts in common with the RV-8\/8A and RV-9A, which keeps
production and inventory costs down. Legroom, headroom, and useful load are
all greater than the RV-6\/6A. The span and area of the wing was increased.
The Vne (never exceed speed) was increased to 210 kts. Fuel capacity went
from 38 gallons to 42.\nBut the biggest difference is the kit. The RV-7\/7A
kit is the most highly advanced kit Van's has produced, and maybe the
easiest to build. Computer aided design and computer controlled production
tools mean that the parts fit exactly as they should.

Ok... we can do that.

1) Backup aircraft.cfg.

2) Open aircraft.cfg.

3) Search for this:

point.0= 1.000, 4.025, 0.000, -4.000, 1400.000, 0.000, 0.300, 180.000,
0.300, 1.500, 0.800, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000



4) Replace it with this:



point.0= 1.000, 4.025, 0.000, -4.000, 1400.000, 0.000, 0.300, 45.000, 0.300,
1.500, 0.800, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000



(note this is one line, if your news reader cuts it into 2, make it one
again)



5) Save and try it out.
