First DCS A-10C screenshot :)

Yes, but you can use it that way. As long the three infa red lights are pointing at the reciever and it's setup accordingly (and you have the necesery range of movement) you can have it pointing in any direction you want.

Didn't think of that, but I'm afraid that's not completely true in all cases. If you got it pointing behind you left/right rotations, up/down transitions will work ok, but up/down rotation and left/right transition will be inverted. You can't invert axis in TIR settings. So unless you can do that in game (ok, in BS it might be possible) it won't work properly.

"Invert

When a checkbox in this column is checked for an Axis in the Axis list, the tracking information for that Axis will be reversed. For example, checking the invert box for Pitch will make your in-game view turn to the right when you turn your head to the left."

Congrats on your program with the USAF. It's also really nice to see some advanced views of what we may get in the future.

 

Love those huge screens too.

 

While the stick looks very much like an F-16 stick, the throttle which is not pictured is very similar to the F-15 throttle.

No, it's just the grip and controls ... the underlying mechanics are not changed, the A-10 does not have an FBW system.

 

Also, you'll notice most modern aircraft are getting a side-stick ;)

 

Hitman, if you look at the real thing you'll see a centered stick!

 

I wonder is it FSSB too just like in F-16?!

I would really like to have 3 maybe even 6 of them.

 

Seriously:

I thing that the 'Gaming industry' (and you can add Eagle Dynamics to this term) beats the the military research.

Just because there is a competition between the company's.

 

I can't believe that a UAV Officer in training would post things like: "Why are the Trees not moving in the wind?" to his supervisor.

Is it a split throttle for separate RPM control of twin engines?!

He's actually saying:" Hey, I got shot by a Shilka hiding in the tree line".

For good reason! A lot of thought went into the F-16 HOTAS. If you have a Cougar or a Fighterstick and program it per the real Viper's functionality, minus the classified ECM stuff of course, its amazing how well it all comes together.

What competition? FalconAF? :huh:

 

And will the supervisors complain when they're flying through trees? :P

The stick in the A-10C is very similar to the F-16. The right throttle is the same as the F-15E.

Oh and lookie that. That captain has his HOTAS on both the left and right, not that stick in the center BS. :joystick:

 

That's becasue he's flying a UAV :D .

 

Also, you'll notice most modern aircraft are getting a side-stick ;)

 

Yeah but none of the cool ones :) .. only those aircraft that are one step away from handing over control of the skies to drones are flown side saddle. :joystick: .

 

@ OP; Nice find BTW :thumbup::thumbup:

 

 

Nice to see you around Stormin, :) .

Do you have an idea how the real F-16 stick assignement works? ;)

 

Its somewhat different than what you might expect it to be.

Thanks for confirming that. Wasn't sure if they added a couple more things from the A-10A throttle and it appears that they have then so now it matches the F-15.

What do you mean? The functionality of the buttons? Ie what TMS Up/Right/Down/Left etc do?

@Pilotasso

 

Yeah...what? The function of the buttons is literally written on a Cougar HOTAS. The F4AF manual has an entire section dedicated to the functions of each button and their corresponding keyboard presses for the sole purpose of HOTAS programming. It isn't hard to find out what buttons do on the real thing.

 

So if you mean do I know how the real buttons feel, like they feel springy or mushy, no. If you mean do I know how they all come together in operating the avionics, I'd say I have a fairly good idea. ;)
