I am trying to do the same by looking at in cockpit photos, but I can't tell if it's positioned upper, mid, or lower thigh. Right now, I sit down with my arms hanging straight down at my side. I then bend 90 deg at the elbow and where my hand is naturally positioned, is where I move my chair to line up and grip the stick.

Great to hear! Is it in the UI somewhere or does it require deeper programming/scripting?

Same here - this is quite a good pic showing stick location with reference to leg location.



I am personally going with mid-thigh location as the bolster on my Obutto rig impacts how far back my upper arm can go. Can easily see how you need the 12 degree offset, if you draw a line from the stick to your shoulder. Pulling/tilting straight back would be quite difficult. As you move the stick location further forward a little you prob need a slightly lower angle (like 1 degree).

Doesn't take much, just tell it how much you want to offset, apply, save, and then run the profile.
