Default Nosewheel Steering - Sensitivity slider special options?

NWS on the viper is... its un-Godly sensitive, or at least it seems that way, even with a curve dialed into the rudder axis... would be awesome if we could dial this down manually in special options to prevent shopping cart tipover accidents lol

using a twist joystick and it's fine? Maybe you're taxiing too fast?

Not sure what the problem is, but landing the Viper appears to have the same problem as the P-51D had when it was first released. Takeoffs were, as with reality, difficult because of the Merlin's huge amount of torque. But landing should have been much easier. In the first few weeks, the poor P-51 would do its best to kill you if it ever touched planet earth after flying. Later, it got fixed and landing is now much more realistic.

I am ASSUMING.... ahem.... that the same goes for the Viper. Yes, you CAN land without incident, but just one little thing that just ain't quite right and the Viper commits suicide, taking you with it.

Never botched a single landing in the 16 and I've been flying her daily since early access release day. She's really easy on the pilot.

What exactly are you referring to that goes wrong when you're landing her?

I had to laugh at that one, I too felt, wow this is really easy to land, I must be getting pretty good, - then I realized there was no damage model!

If you're tipping over you're indeed taxiing too fast. I use 30 curvature on my TPR and that's perfectly fine for sensitivity.

Honestly on the ground the viper seems to have like no friction at all. It glides around at idle with no effort.

Just like a real thing, while literally all the other DCS modules are held back by some magick sticky thing that you need to overcome with too much of thrust. The Harrier is said to start rolling by just releasing the wheel brakes at 29% idle RPM - as opposed in DCS since the last change you need over 60% RPM to get going. But that's just the extreme example.

A clean viper should be able to taxi at idle. That’s realistic.

Even more so, if you're clean you need to brake a lot to not overspeed ;-)
