Default HOTAS Cougar - Antenna elevation knob bug

ANT ELV controlls velocity of scan elevation change, but not position of the center of scan.
MAN RNG knob works fine for changing zoom level of TGP.

P.S. Sorry for broken english, doing my best to explain the bug.

The ANT ELV axis not an absolute axis which it should be. It mimics the spring loaded control of an F18

Yes. If not centered, it rapidly accumulates instead of allowing fine adjustment. Should be 0 elevation when centered, and increment or decrement angle relative to knob deflection. 33% rotation of knob past center should be 20 degrees up deflection of radar array.

Yeah - I had to unmap it from my rotary dial and use buttons instead.

Not sure why this was moved out of the F-16 bugs forum as this is incorrect behavior for the F-16 and is not the fault of the controller?


I'm seeing the same issue.

Using x56, noticed the same issue. Elev knob is one of the best about f16 radar controls. It should be fixed ED!

@nineline This is a bug. You have modeled the antenna elevation control wrong in this aircraft. It does not act like the F18 with a centering spring load, but absolute elevation across the scroll like the F15.
