Excessive curves are a bad idea, you end up with a whole lot of no response, and then a whole lot of loads of response in the extremes of the axis.

Excessive anything is bad. But when someone who actually flew the Harrier, you know like professionally, says that the controls as they are out of the box are excessively sensitive, I tend to believe him.

I just don't understand the straw-man attack on his statement, as if there were no middle-ground between adjusting nothing and excessively adjusting curves.

Real Harrier stick is about 50cm from the pivot to the trigger, most popular joysticks are about 20cm. It's a huge difference in range of motion thus accuracy. The stiff spring in most joysticks additionally reduces precision of movements near the center. Just saying.

Orso, I find it amazing that you consider my post a "strawman" or an "attack", grow up.

Where in the video was any discussion of "excessive curves"? I would gladly listen to your evidence for someone propagating the use of "excessive curves". Please enlighten me.
