Excellent, I know exactly what to do then.
Thank you tom_19d!

So DCS doesn't seem to like if I have the 2 throttles on the Warthog physically attached. It wants to see each one move independently. It looking for my right throttle to be thrust and the left throttle to be rudder. It won't let me control the rudder with the keyboard if I'm using the Warthog.
Does anyone else experience this??????

btw, Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow

I'm beginning to understanding the nuances of DCS, not the most robust software....
Once I'm comfortable with dogfighting at slower speeds I'm going to move on back to Falcon BMS.

How in heaven did you get to that conclusion?
For the F-86 I have my left throttle lever bound to target wingspan.
And my rudder axis is bound to to my MFG pedals. In the Bf-109 I use my left throttle for the flaps axis. Etc.
DCS comes with some stupid default settings, I grant you that. And if you have a joystick and a throttle and pedals, it will by default bind the rudder to the RZ axis on each one of these devices. But you can easily get rid of those and bind the commands as you like. Especially, you should only have one binding for every command; else the control signals from different controllers will conflict. So if your rudder is bound to any axis, you cannot control it from the keyboard. That's logical. If you want to control the rudder from the keyboard, it should not be bound to any axis.

And, for a relatively simple aircraft like the F-86 there is no need to use TARGET as a middleman. Bind your controls directly in DCS Options/Controls.
And learn before you jump to conclusions. You can get a lot of help on this forum. But if you announce that you will "go back to Falcon BMS anyway", why would anybody want to help you?

I use my left throttle quadrant as my rudder trim.

Your target profile for the F86 looks to me as a good place to start in doing my own profile (but perhaps a little simpler). If you would please upload your profile, I would appreciate it.
thanks

I updated my post with a zip file. I doubt I'll ever make a Target profile that thorough again but it was definitely the best way to learn Target and all its features. Start with Chuck's guides and the essentials. It's difficult to remember all the switches and layers even if you only fly the Sabre. Using a base template you can jump right in to a new module, just have to assign axis. It's nice to have standardized controls that are common to all the modules.

Cheers
