Hi everyone,

Browsing the forum and the web I am realizing that in general for DCS almost nobody uses the native program of the controller so as to take advantage of the 3-mode selector to program the buttons and thus multiply the number of settings available "in hand" by 3 or almost, I see everyone with single profile done on DCS.
Now, since having the three positions you could bring on the controllers in addition to common functions also for example in one mode the functions of taxy and take off and landing, in one those of cruise and in the other those fight or in one taxi, take off, landing and cruise and in the others those of fight AA and AG I cannot explain this limiting choice.
Is it a problem with the controller software that is unreliable or simply laziness or initial difficulty in memorizing everything?

While initially I used to put as much as six functions on each button of my HOTAS,  having to remember so many combinations was actually detrimental. So, my current profiles use no more than 2 functions on each button, which is much easier to remember and lends itself well to the logic of using one button to activate something and then use the same button to de-activate it.

...or the preference to use HOTAS setup that most resemble the real one and ditching anything that wasn't there like gear lever or ext. flaps. This actually includes a few buttons that change functions depending on the aircraft mode/conditions like NWS/AP or DLC/CMS to name a few.
