Can someone tell me how to taxi properly in FS2002?

I start to taxi, but the plane usually goes too fast and goes over runways, through building, over grass etc. How can I taxi?!

Please help! Big thumbs up

Taxi only at a maimum of 30 knots. Turn at around 8 knots. Use your rudder to turn, never the ailerons.

I'd call 30 knots a bit high. 15-20 is better, when going over 20 throttle back a bit.

some planes need a lot of power to get moving. As soon as it moves, you can throttle back to almost idle.
For the rest, practice makes perfect and remember that each aircraft behaves differently.

Also, you cannot taxi using the mouse. The keyboard is virtually impossible, IMO, you have to use a joystick.

usually, you don't want to get over 20, unless you fly for Southwest  Big grin

Here's how I do it:
to begin the taxi I push the throttle to about 50% and as soon as the plane starts rolling I decrease the thrust nearly to the minimum to maintain a speed of 12-15 knots, to turn (90°) I decrease the speed to 5 knots and as soon as I start turning I add a little bit of power just to keep rolling.

Hope this helps

Use the brake, rudder with applicable power on your turns. This will help in that dep't. Also, you might want to get a tower view now and then to judge distances. ??

I'm getting old, but don't all FS's from '97 on, pretty much taxi/turn the same way. Is this your 1st FS?

Agree with Jwenting re: different a/c, also.

I use the keyboard to taxi, its not too hard. Sometimes I put max throttle for 1 second that then immediatly hit F1!  Big thumbs up

I forgot to add that I use the keyboard to turn on the ground, it also controls the rudder in my case

One of the most useful feautures in my opinion is the differential braking. Try hitting F11 on a left turn and F12 on a right turn.

Differential Braking is good, but usually not recommended of your aircraft has bogey main gear. If you are flying a three or four engined aircraft, differential thrust is good. On my CH yoke, if I'm flying a twinjet, I'll assign the prop lever to be the #2 engine throttle, and with tri-jets, Ill assign the mixture axis to the third engine (I'm just kinda screwed if I fly a 4 engined jet, I have to control all 4 with 1 lever) so I can independently control each engine.
