Default Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Hhelp

OK I'm a little frustrated. I've been searching and searching. Looking for tips on mapping the buttons on my joystick. I actually flew my Huey for like 20 seconds at one point. But obviously I need help setting up the joystick. Is it this hard for everyone??

Well, now I have a full CH pro suite but before that I had
for years Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and what I would do is
map controls with option CTRL+Button E.G. 1,2,3,4
or ALT+ POV, thus multiplying the configurable buttons / POV
by 4.... (ALT, CTRL, SHIFT, Windows key)..

There are no buttons to map to fly the huey, just the regular pitch/roll/rudder/collective. Throttle is on governor.

However, helicopters take a lot of practice, and the Huey is more demanding than most sims.
The twist joystick isn't very precise for the controls you need on a helicopter. Rudder pedals will go a long way.

You can fine tune your axis controls to maybe have 20% of exponential so that the middle of the stick is less sensitive and more precise.

Practice without weapons, and only a half tank of fuel.

I wonder if you could set it up for your throttle to be your collective, with rudder pedals and stick.

I recommend leaving it linear but cutting off the movement at 90% on both stick axes (i.e. you never move more than 90% of maximum even if you go all the way to the edge).

That's how I do it. I also use the twist handle as the pedals and it works just fine. All it really takes then is the understanding of the physics involved and plenty of practice.
