Illustrated HOTAS Kneeboard


Recommended Posts

So I can remember what I'm doing when I jump between planes I made a bunch of illustrated quick reference guides for HOTAS commands for the modules I own. I figured I'd share them in case others can find some use for them as well. 

 

You can download them all here: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314231/

 

While I was at it, I also uploaded my kneeboard checklists for people too: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3314229/

 

Apologies if you see this post in multiple places.

Yep, works fine for me. Remember it's from a page that cannot accept priority.

It does not work for me in the store page on the left DDI. For example, A2G mode, flir on the right MDI, store page on the left. If I understand it right, SCS left should call the A2G radar because the store page cannot accept priority, it does not.

It however works on the right DDi if i put the store page on that side (SCS right)

Maybe a bug?

Yep, take your point about the stores page, but it works for everything else.  Maybe the stores page is considered to be different, or it cold be a bug as you said.

There is something a bit weird here. If stores is on the left and we are in A/A, if a non accepting priority DDI is on the right, then the stores page does go to AZ/EL.  However, if the right DDI is a priority accepting page, e.g. radar, then the stores page on the left won't go to AZ/EL.

It's drawn the way it is on the reference guide for a reason, the "empty" SCS action will only bring up certain pages on certain displays. I don't believe SCS left will ever bring up the RDR page on the left DDI in any master mode, it's exclusive to the right DDI. 

 

I also seem to recall reading some time ago that the Stores page has specific SCS interactions as well, though I can't recall exactly what they were. I think SCS Left with Stores on the Left DDI in A/G toggles between weapon video and the Stores format, or something like that. I could be misremembering. But I think the Stores page has more complex SCS interaction than what we have now.

If you look at the full list of real HOTAS commands the stores is an accepting page with some weapon toggling functions. 

Do you have a resource for a full list of real HOTAS commands? I'm not aware of one.

So are we calling illogical putting the radar on the left DDI as most other fighters? o_o o_o

I'm not sure logic has much to do with it, but the Hornet is definitely designed with the radar on the right DDI being considered "normal"

Not from a postable source.  You can piece bits of it together from various docs that reference bits, but I'm not aware of an available public distributable source that lists everything in one place.  

Illogical from the point of view of the aircraft designers.  I'm not sure they much care what any other fighter does.  The HOTAS will be designed to support certain anticipated actions, like how it assumes you are running the SA/HSI on the AMPCD, even though you may well put one or both of those pages on a DDI on a fairly regular basis.
