The waiting has been long.
I am very much for everything that we get us ready for fly the FA - 18C right away:manual, Hotas key binding, etc.
I have been reading the NATOP manual but it looks quite daunting and deep.

Even without the actual key commands, you can look in the NATOPS manual at what the functions are on the real HOTAS and start figuring out where they'll go on yours. I've already done this for my CH HOTAS, and then it's just a matter of looking up the key presses later and assigning them.

It would be nice to have the manual, but you can get some of the work done without it.

If they had the manual in a release-worthy state, we would certainly already have our hands on it.
It's pretty obvious (also to ED) that everybody would like to have the manual as early as possible - thus it makes practically zero sense to ask for it.

However, requesting a list of the key commands (which was the actual intention behind me starting this thread) is an entirely different story and not so obvious.

For complex aircraft like the Hornet the creation of a profile can take multiple hours and the "looking up" of the key commands is something that we could already do now while we are waiting for the Hornet to go EA.

Of course what I am assuming here is that the definition of the commands is pretty much done right now and won't change drastically until release.

.
It's already in the hands of press people, so ya, they could let us see that version. But as you say, it make zero sense to ask for it

Why not ask for it? The worst that’ll happen is you’re told “no.”

That was really only possible for the A-10C because the switchology is 1:1. You can't say that about the TM Warthog vs. the F/A-18C.

In one of the live casts Wags says something about including a profile(s), cant recall if it was his personal or what, maybe someone with a better memory will chime in...?

This video has the key bindings shown for most/all? of the HOTAS. It goes by quick so pause the video and use the , and . keys to advance and rewind the video frame by frame.
