Default T6000 FCS bindings for P51-D help

I am a noob at DSC but am really enjoying the learning process. After 1 week, I can start, taxi, takeoff and fly pretty well. I land successfully about 1 in 4 tries...lol


Current setup:
T6000 FCS with rudder pedals
two Button boxes on my rig for various functions
I always fly in VR

Most of the major functions have been mapped successfully but I am curious if anyone has found any clever or good bindings for:

1. The mini stick on the throttle
2. The rocker axis on the front of the throttle.

I just can't seem to find anything that makes sense or works properly for these two items. I have the rudder pedals so I don't need to map the rocker axis for that function.


Also if anyone could share their setup specifically for this airplane, that would be appreciated. I am sure that I have probably not thought this out like some of you pros out there

1. Aileron / elevator trim?
2. No idea.

Don't own the stick myself, just commenting

Zoom View and Brakes come to mind for mini sticks that return to center. In my case this is in addition to other methods of doing the same thing with lessor results.
You can limit the stroke to only be half so that it appears to go back to zero and lets you use the full stroke for only one half. Whatever you like by adjusting the saturations.

By adjusting Saturation y in the attached pics, it limits how far past center 0 to off it can go. It can go digitally and thereby one can adjust the level of zoom out it returns to.
I.E. I can be zoomed in or out to any level via other methods I use (buttons held) and when I hit the mini stick at all and allow it to center, I am right back to the optimal zoom level of my choosing showing my six pack gauges. Without using this mini stick and curve, it is a regular PITA to get back to my preferred view while wearing a track IR.

I believe it works like this.
Saturation Y seems to be the limit when you let go of the stick. I limited this to 90 for the zoom since at 100 it was zooming back to too close.
Saturation X seems to be the limit on full application. I limited this on my particular brake application by using a lower than 50 Saturation X since I wanted only half braking or the brakes stay on in a Spitfire. One could use more or less in the P-51 as desired.
Curves speed up or slow down the action in specific areas.

If you're not wedded to using the axes as axes then maybe employ them for custom snap-views? The front rocker could be set up for e.g. LEFT = close-up engine management controls while RIGHT = close-up armament panel.

Thanks, that is a great idea....
