Lightbulb Hat Switch Scrollable Radio Menu

Hi everybody !

Last days I was thinking of a comfy and efficient way to manage radio comms in DCS since Voice Attack is a pain if your Windows is not native english.

Then I recalled about F1 game and it's radio menu, that you can use with just a hat switch or a cross ...

The idea is :
You open radio menu as you do now, with one or more buttons depending on the plane (ex for the M2K, one for U/VHF, one for VHF).

When the menu is up, you have the first line overlined.

From there you scroll down or up to move to another menu,

You scroll right to enter a sub-menu and validate a command.

And of course you scroll left to go back to the previous menu or sub-menu.

I think managing radios is a weak spot in DCS, and I fear the arrival of F-14 and the communication with the RIO.

And to have the cherry on top of the sunday,
It would be awesome to have a ''favourites'' menu in which we could put our most used commands or ones that requires quick access, pretty much like a custom playlist of commands ...

Is that something that could happen ?

Thank you.
Best regards.
