I am developing an old aircraft with conventional or "taildragger" undercarriage which has the tail wheel lock feature.

Which command should I use for the rear gear object in order to have the wheel lock command (SHIFT+G) to work?

I tried with r_gear but doesn´t work.

Hi
Not sure what your asking Smiley but you animate the tail wheel as a castoring wheel using the c_wheel tag in fsx
use the search function in the main message area and search for castor, as there are a few tips on what KF to use and naming for fs9 and fsx
The other things you need is the tailwheel_lock =1 and the center gear set up for 180 deg steer angle (param7) in the contact points section of the aircraft.cfg
Cheers
Wozza

Thanks for answering.
What I'm trying to achieve is block the tail wheel (no movement at all) when the tail wheel lock is active. like in the Defaul DC3.
