Fan Spotlight: Flight Controls
Not content with normal joysticks or computer setups, the forum members highlighted below decided to take action and create their own masterpieces. From weird and wonderful to massive collections we’ll explore a few of different creations by your fellow forum members. Enjoy!
First up is a half joystick, half controller Frankenstein created by Yomi. Why you ask? In Yomi’s own words “HOTAS or dual stick setups have lots of buttons, but don’t have enough analogue axes for full control. A mouse and keyboard has even fewer analogue axes. Although it may not offer a huge advantage to have analogue strafing, it might be important for precise maneuvering.”
LikeableBump’s Arena Relaxer
Next up is LikeableBump. In order to truly relax while flying in the Verse, Likeable has attached mounts to his DXRacer chair. Welded out of aluminum, these mounts will stand the test of time.
Torvic’s Grainy Solution
Struggling with the complications of a small desk, Torvic has designed wooden mounts that attach to the legs of his table. Even better, when he’s finished destroying enemies for the day the mounts can swerve out of the way.
Versailles’ Hot Swap
JazAero’s Command Center
Thrustmaster MFD’s, Thrustmaster Hotas warthog, Saitek control yoke, throttle quadrant, radio stack, LCD instruments Saitek cyborg control stick, Saitek Rudder pedals, Nostromo N 52, Space pilot Pro, Real Flight Elite control box, Manhattan Mondo hub 28 port USB 2/3 hub, Matrox triple head to go digital edition, and Track IR Pro are just a sample of what JazAero takes into battle.
