I seem to have run into a problem here.

I'm trying to taxi an XR5 out of a hangar at Wideawake, but no matter what controls I try, it doesn't rotate for anything, even with Hielor's NoseWheelTurn.

Any suggestions?

It has no turning animation, but the vessel will still turn if you're moving.

Problem is, I have no idea what key gets it to turn, I've searched through most of the documentation on Orbiter, the XR5, NoseWheelTurn, even scouring the forums, nothing.

To get it to turn use the keys 1+3 (might be wrong) on your numpad. This the way to get the rudders to turn while turning the craft. I might be wrong thought

APU on, turn on flight control surfaces, then get going about 25 m/s. Use numpad 1 and 3 to turn. Happy day :)

From keymap.cfg:
RCSYawLeft = NUMPAD1
RCSYawRight = NUMPAD3


I thought the XR5 had an animated nose wheel for steering?
It has. From XR manual, page 11 :
XR5-Only Features
- Nose wheel steering animation.
