Joystick type button on CM3 throttle


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I slowly configuring my new throttle more an more 🙂, and was wondering if you guys configured the joystick type button (right side throttle, index finger position) and with what functionality.

 

TDC?

TDC here as well.  Curious to see if anyone has come up with another use because I also have the TDC mapped to my VKB Gunfighter thumbstick (which I find more intuitive).

I added buttons to the mini stick in the Virpil software, and use them for exterior view panning - tip I got from @imacken iirc.

So it doubles as TDC axis and exterior views panning when I go to exterior view.

I have now also edited it to the  mini joystick on the throttle...  works very fluently, more than on a button on my joystick (tried that as well).

 

For viewing around I use TrackIR, which was new to me, and I find it AMAZING!! The fact that when you turn your head in real life, you also do it in the plane. The fact that if the letters are small on the DDI and you lean forward you zoom in and get closer to the screen... wow! The  fact you do gear and with a quick peek of the head, you see it go.... wow!

(not even talking about looking for enemy planes around you)

That's pretty slick and I'll have to give it a look.  Imacken always comes up with good stuff!

Yep TDC for me.

I configured it, it worked.... used to lock planes in the Amraam training. Today I was redoing some basic training and couldn't get it to lock anymore. Checked my settings and TDC depress was not assigned anymore. But also I could not Assign pressing ministick to TDC depress 😞 

 

If I check in Virpil software, pressing it registers as the vertical axis blinks upon pressing. How can I assign the TDC to assigning a target agai?

Yeah thanks, after a restart of the game it was working again... weird 😞

 

Can you check your buttons in DCS while playing? I see it works for the axis...

Yes my axis works for TDC movement and TDC depress button works, and the buttons work for panning around exterior view.
