Can someone verify the flanker curves? Mine kicks in the AB every now and then.

I have never liked controllers that attempted to model an afterburner detent. Unless it could be adjusted to match the requirements of each specific game, it would only work for games that followed some kind of industry standard.


The ability to easily remove/install the detent on the Warthog was a good idea. But what games have an afterburner setup that utilizes the Warthog's detent correctly? So I have never used the optional detent on the Warthog.


I really like the $1,000 authentic F/A-18 throttle I have seen posted here. But it includes fully functional detents identical to the real throttle. I would hope some sims can use it correctly with minimum modifications to the game for that kind of money.

It's not a matter of collaboration, it's just poor omission in DCS input options. Every joystick has the same issue, as each joystick type has detent in different place and every aircraft in DCS activates afterburner at different throttle position.

In BMS matching afterburner to a physical detent on the joystick is as easy as clicking one button in the joystick setup screen.

In the axis tune menu, where you set the curves, look at which point in the curve it sits when you have your actual throttle against the detent and slightly change the sliders up/down to make it fit better.

Has anyone done curves for the Harrier to stay below the 102.5% RPM to avoid the engine over heating?

I tried to for a while earlier today but failed magnificently

You can’t do a static curve with the harrier because the RPM percentage changes with altitude, temperature, airspeed and nozzle position. I just keep it linear and keep an eye on the RPM indicator.
