    What's Your Setup?

    Absolutely loving the preview. Just curious what all of you out there have setup and running for Take On Helicopters - CP.

    I've got:

    Logitech G940 HOTAS - This is very useful, especially with the pedals it's very easy to set trim.

    TrackIR 4 - Yay! More degrees of movements!

    22" Monitor - No 3 screens....yet

    Depending on your OS, the RPT should be at Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Take On Helis Preview\takeonpreview.RPT

    The relevant section looks like:
    Code:
    Detected Joystick: Saitek X52 Pro Flight Controller
        0 ... X Axis [1,30]
        1 ... Y Axis [1,31]
        ...
    Please post only joystick-related logs, instead of the entire thing, or hide it in SPOILER tags

    Hey Dice, i'm thinking of splashing out on a G940 too, can you tell me what the FFB is like for TOH or other flight sims.
    Based on the majority of review's out there, the feedbk has been quite positive regarding the FFB.
    It's not really a huge deciding factor as i think without it the G940 pkg is still relatively well priced.

    *I also wonder how many of us with Flight sticks etc fly with the Joystick between their legs (using some kind of custom bracket etc) or use a desk mount with the stick to the side or in the middle?

    If your a helicopter fan i'm guessing the obvious?


    My spec:

    Office Desk setup
    24" Monitor
    Saitek EVO
    No pedals

  5. #5
    Thrustmaster FLCS + TQS HOTAS (SWF22 modded)
    I have no room for pedals so I use the antenna pot
    on TQS for that, works great.
    TrackIR 2

    I use 2 small bed tables, on the left and right side of my chair so my stick and throttle are at legs level. It feels quite natural. I've tried putting the joystick between my legs but
    1. in order to make it work properly I'd have to modify it
    2. I already have a joy stick between my legs (can't make it work with any games tho)
    I just don't understand how some people are playing with their joystick at mouse/keyboard level. Using your mouse with this setup is really unpractical and your arms are standing way to high, doesn't feel natural to me and...it's tiring

    The FFB on the G940 is really good. The stick, throttle, and pedals are very smooth. You can also adjust the tension on the throttle and pedals. I absolutely love my G940.

    If you do get it, be sure to download the drivers from Logitech. The device will actually show up as 3 different controllers, so it might not work good in all games. But most flight sims allow multiple controllers, so there should be no worries there.

    I don't have the stick between my legs, I tried it once and felt pretty awkward. I actually play with it sitting on my desk. I tried the stick and throttle on my sides and really liked it, but I need to get a good, sturdy mount.

    Another good thing about the G940 is you can hard-mount each peripheral as they all have screw holes on them.

    Cheers Dice! yeah i think i'm gonna get one, it's in my price range. I think TOH will be worth the investment (hours of play i hope?)

    Yeah my cyborg-evo is taped to a small lamp shade table (about office chair height), it's a bit cheap but it does the job, cant fly with the stick to one side

    BTW: chk- http://www.simhq.com/_technology3/technology_188a.html

    For center stick mount desk bracket solutions. Might get one?

    Those desk brackets look like they'd be pretty good. But they are damn expensive as well! I'd rather create a mounting system myself because it would be much cheaper!
