I know it's a bit late from Danielle's post, but they issued a patch to adapt the .cfg file for rudder steering. Apparently they had designed the model initially to respond to toe brakes on a full simulator setup.

This aircraft is straight awesome. Love the little touches like the fogging windscreen if the temp controls aren't adjusted properly!
Everything seems to work except for steering on the ground. I get minimal steering and am unable to taxi.
