I have a 25 year old joystick somewhere in the loft with manual trim wheels. I think I might use that lol.
Why don't they introduce manual trim in the keyboard so if you press shift and W,A,S,D,Z or X it gives 1 measure of trim in the given direction? (I think someone has sort of mentioned this.)
Also lets face it - if it's a realistic flight sim it's reasonable to expect the player to use something more than a mouse and keyboard as standard. You would never be able to control a real helicopter using such basic input devices.
We will look at improving this, but generally: this is one of the reasons we've included auto-trim. Not having as many analogue axes when using keyboard and mouse means this system can handle at least one for youAlso lets face it - if it's a realistic flight sim it's reasonable to expect the player to use something more than a mouse and keyboard as standard.
I wasn't asking to make it as easy to fly with the good ol' combo of a mouse and keyboard, that isn't possible.
Flight sims should be better optimised for sticks.
But some kind of "increase thrust" and "decrease thrust" for keyboard turning would help us keyboard people who don't have a stick (Yet, hopefully .).
United as one, divided by zero.
For people like me who are used to the keyboard control can get over that limit. My only problem is trim setting, everything else I do as competently.
They could maybe make it similar to what I have on my RC controller, the trim is a separate slider below and to the side of the stick.
This could be adjusted with plus and minus key assignments for them and maybe have a visible trim setting shown somewhere on the HUD for these.
I would find this usefull myself to set trim up before take off etc even though I use a flight stick.
Is it just set like it is in ToH, by a single toggle trim on/off, in a real helicopter?
Flying with AT on with keyboard/mouse is challenging to get right but actually doable. Feels like a more difficult version of what we have now and that I like. Landing with the ground effect wind is a deadly affair for me so far! heh
With Autotrim off it's completely and utterly uncontrollable bad. A "makes me want to cancel my pre-order" bad. That's a very bad bad to be.
