I have a thrustmaster HOTAS X joystick, it works great except when you are flying the HUEY there a bump in the center which causes issues when landing with precision using the throttle for the collective, does anyone know the best way around this ?

 

I did have a Saitek X52 but the drivers for windows 10 are awful and just too many issues with that stick. For the price I paid it was not worth all the trouble. It doesnt even work with USB 3 ports.

If u really want to give it a try, unsrew the 6 screws in the base and try to open the case. I tried it, but let go because it didn`t come off easily. I didn`t want to try prying it open with a screwdriver and to damage the casing.

 

If you found a way to get rid of the "center bump", let me know !

When I was using the HOTAS X throttle I used to set the Huey collective curve so that the detent matched a comfortable cruising speed.

Similarly with jets I'd set the curve so that the detent matched 100% military power and going past the detent put me into reheat.

On non afterburning jets I'd set it at cruise speed as with the helos.
