Use only ONE view, so do not switch views during pushback (Shift + P). 1) Number pad keys 1 and 2 do not work - use the main numbers row. 2) The aircraft will only respond to a left or right turn after it has traveled its own length in the direction it's currently going from the time you press 1 or 2. So anticipate the turn by the length of the aircraft and you'll do just fine.
