Default Editable button layout template for Logitech G13

You can find a lot of keymaps on the net - but they are images of someones setup. I want a file that I can edit and save in different versions when I change them.

So here is my button layout for F18 in DCS for the G13 keypad. And if you ask why TDC push is not on the ministick push it's because you hold it all the time while slewing the mav, so it decreases your stick precision if you don't have it on a separate button...

BUT - the link below is to the Libre Office Draw (open source office) odg-file so you can change it yourself and print your version.

And my setup that works really well for VR - it actually feels like it's a "part of the throttle" this way. And the mini stick is really good for slew control.

Nice setup with the G13. I've never been able to find a good position for mine.

Nice, thanks for sharing, I have my G13 around but don´t know how to use it properly.

It really works great this way for VR. I put a square plate with nylon straps on top of the Virpil V2 desk mount top. Then put 3M Dual Lock on that and the underside of the G13. It sits like it's bolted to the mount, but is still possible to detach.

And with that position in VR you can just extend your palm so the wrist rests on the top of the throttle while using the mini stick for TDC slew. And the precision in the TDC is awesome. After this I actually don't miss having an analog mini-stick on my throttle at all...

It feels like it's made for this setup Had to sand the G13 edges though with fine sanding paper as it was a bit sharp.

I will give it another try, thanks for your input.

Very cool, never thought about using the G13 knob to slew. I'm going to do that with mine.

Sorry - had updated to a new version 1.2 and forgot to update the link. The original post is now updated.

I use a Playseat Airforce chair and already have a piece of plastic sandwiched between my throttle and the side mount. It's extended in front to hold a track ball. I'm going to look at it again tomorrow though. Your profile makes it worth figuring out a solution.
