Typhoon HOTAS layout


Recommended Posts

Wonder if anybody knows the HOTAS layout for the typhoon. Would be interesting to see the similarities and differences from the other modern jets we've got at the moment.

Didn't realise there were so many things going on with the throttle! Surprised to not see a bright red pickle button. I thinking more so about what the actual function of each hat and button was.

The bright red (actually orange) pickle button is hidden behind the cover on the right side of the stick top. You have to flip it aside to uncover and press the pickle button aka A/S weapons commit.

 

The actual HOTAS moding depends on the aircraft standard. For the time being it's certainly to early to comment on the details. It's not too different to that of the F/A-18C, albeit there are a total of 22 controls, incl. a shift button and long/short press functionality to access up to four function per button. Remodding dependent on the Phase of Flight you are in may also occur dependent on the capability standard we are talking about.

That manual wasn't really declassified, but leaked. It reglects the very early PSC 1.X standard, but nonetheless gives an idea of the original moding philosophy leaned towards A/A operations. Much of this is still applicable, but there have been some serious changes with the latest standards.

and 7 Layer shifted Hotas system

 

One times shifted.

 

The controls are pretty similar to other birds of the time HOTAS wise, nobody tried to reinvent the wheel here.

Wish list: late DCS: GR.1 (with GR.1B) Tornado, Improved Combined Arms (like OFP/ArmA I/ArmA II), Improved Logistics

Build: Ryzen 3800X on X570, RX 6900XT, 32GB DDR4-3600 | Virpil T-50CM Stick & Throttle, MFG Crosswind Pedals, TrackIR 5

I've heard that (at least on early Eurofighter versions) the HOTAS controls were not that great, because they had been neglected during development in favor of the voice controls?

Intel i7-4790K @ 4x4GHz + 16 GB DDR3 RAM + Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 (8 GB VRAM) + M.2 SSD + Windows 10 64Bit

 

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

It's a little bit subjective anyway. For A/A the controls are ok. For multirole they are not optimal IMO, albeit P3E has introduced some notable improvements. DVI is redundant as no functions are mutually exclusive to DVI.

I only know P1E and P2E and they have everything you need for A-A. There is no DMS equivalent, but other than that it is good I think.

I cannot count on my fingers and toes the number of times when entering or egressing the cockpit during the Development, the throttle pinkie was snapped. Eventually the Procurement bloke, sick of sending them off for repair had a large foam box created to sit around it!

Lol, we don't even have replicas for all the pits and use Wharthogs somtimes. 

Never had a snapped throttle pinkie though.
