Please note I see this is a Saitek product. This has been listed this way (Logitech) only because that is the way it was listed on Amazon.

 

Has anyone tried to use this for DCS.

 

I was thinking it would be great for targeting control systems. I can see using it with the Su25T, Gazelle, or A-10A/C.

 

Maybe you fast movers can even use it for your fancy radar.

 

I think Saitek may have inadvertently busted open a market for flight gear here.

 

Anyway let me know. :)

EDIT: I can even see an after market for "cards" for this equipment (for when you change aircraft)

These titles are listed in the chronological order I purchased them.

Are dozens of "(d)umb'oxing" and "reviews" on YT, but don't fine one showing how install and test the thing in Windows Games controllers or how assign buttons in games.

 

But in this video, the guy use for play other games, what means that device is just a "joystick" for Windows - contrary to Saitek Switch panel that rely on plug-ins, and you guys can use in DCS.

 

 

"Open Game Compatibility offers the ability to use the Side Panel in more than just Farming Simulator. Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen, Euro Truck Simulator – just a few of the other titles in which you can easily use the Side Panel for control."

This thing is a simple 32 buttons 4 axis HID USB device for windows and it shows up immediately in the joystick configuration panel in Windows 10. The joystick can be used as an analog one, or when pressing the led lighted button on top of it, switch to directional keypad type joystick.

To assign the keys, just go to the controllers configuration in DCS, find the column related to this controller and just start assigning. Same for the analog joystick. Workd perfectly in DCS and is ideal for the Gazelle weapon officer side.

Has anyone tried using this in VR with a HOTAS as well? The extra joystick screams AJS-37 Radar stick to me, especially with the ability to map the additional buttons for similar functions.

 

However I feel like controller makers are starting to lose the VR market - and I am torn between jumping into VR but then having to utilize complex button HOTAS only arrangements or sticking to TrackIR and utilizing tools like this and advanced HOTAS units with extra switches to essentially have appropriate commands to unique and easy to know positions.

Imo what is needed in vr is a way to see the rl cockpit as a small pip window or a way to turn on a camera to se what your racing for then turn it off or a combo

The joystick has two modes.

Press one of the buttons on top and it will turn into a "different" joystick that you can map to something else.

Like switching between radar stick and RB-05 stick !

Now that some time has elapsed, and you’ve all had plenty of time to test, are you all still happy with it? I’m looking at it from a VR user’s perspective, and it looks ideal. In like, easy to memorise, and easy to trail a hand across, blindly, and locate the right button. Quite a few of these kicking about at good prices atm.
