My question/problem is simple, no matter what plane it is while turning right or left while taxiing, plane slows down urgently especially if i try to make a sharp turn. To be honest it is not possible for me to make a sharp turn at all. For an example making a 180 turn on the runway is almost impossible for me to do in normal circumstances. What i do for this is i almost giv 60%-80% thrust to make the move otherwise plane slows down and stops.

I wonder if it is a common thing or realistic thing but didn't had or seen anything like that on somewhere else or on an other simulation.

Check the left/right brake assignment, it is possible that the brakes oppose your rudder, i.e you are turning right, but also left brake comes on and vice versa.

Hope that helps.

I've nearly checked all the button assignments but couldn't find anything like that. I only have parking brakes assigned to 'v' and to one of my joystick buttons but nothing else.

I also tried resetting all the button assignments and other settings etc. nothing yet changed anything.

It does that with me too, but I think it is because the front wheel has to turn and sometimes there is smoke, which must be the rubber which will make it slow down automatically.

Well i don't know why, but it is surely unrealistic and feels bad. Like it is too hard for me to make a basic turn on the taxiway even with a b738...

Hello people, I am still looking for a solution for my problem but I just wanted to add somethings.

I can check the rudder input in the simulation, it is starts at 0.000 and stays there if there is no input and the plane moves straight. -1.000 is full left rudder while 1.000 is full right rudder. Planes slowing down starts almost at -0.250 or 0.250. when on the half rudder like -0.500 or 0.500 plane is already reaches a point where it stopps or slows down to 2-3knots of ground speed most of the time. I have never managed to make a full rudder and make a turn, its almost possible with a full thrust to make a sharp turn. And yeah, thats ridicilous.

I know it sounds ridiculous on the ground, but check if you have yaw damper not on. Strange.
