Not even the Warthog gets it done with 1 button only although it was multiple slew sensor that can be pressed aswell. It just doesnt work.

Warthog with a modded TDC button is the answer.

I agree with folks here. While I truly and deeply appreciate every single step from ED towards realism, the real throttle in the F-18 probably has a much finer and precise slew control than the "nipple" that we get in the warthog throttle, which is not even representative of the real slew switch in the Warthog.

An option in the misc tab would be the best way to satisfy all of us here.

Ironically, having just gone from an X-55 to a TM Warthog, I think this is actually worse with the Warthog... I'm baffled by some of the design choices by Thrustmaster for their throttle!

agreed, current system doesn't translate well to our toy joysticks

would be nice to have a misc option such as "TDC depress to slew maverick"

+1

(me, I use my MCG's "Gate Control" ministick w/ push for that. Had to tune the axes in DCS quite a bit for a more controllable movement, but it works really well)
