There are two fixes for this: Use joystick programming software so diagonal press instead outputs the nieghboring vertical/lateral buttons at the same time.

Two, bind the 8 outputs (A B C D E F G H) to the 4 directions like this:
Up H A B
Right B C D
Down D E F
Left F G H
Of course this is impossible in the GUI but I think it can be done with text editing. The lines in DCS will have red highlights because it thinks multi-binding is a problem.
Yes, what I do is use TARGET to generate the 'Thrustmaster Combined' and set the throttle's POV hat as the 'Trustmaster Combined' POV hat and set the stick's POV hat as 4 normal buttons. This way I can use the stick's POV hat as the shkval slew, because I also like to have it on the stick, like the real chopper.

The stick on the T16000M only has one hat and it's a 8-way hat... Would be nice if ED made the shkval work normally with 8-way hats, would save you from having to use profiling software...
