Just wondering what stick you guys are planning to use for the AH64?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wondering what stick you are planning to use for the Apache?  
 

Obviously there aren’t any available that directly fit onto a warthog/ VKB or Virpil base. 

Looking at the Current F16 or F18 sticks, they don’t appear to have enough switches on them. 
 

For myself I’m considering the Virpil Constellation as it appears to provide enough switches.   Granted it doesn’t look the same, but it’s the functionality I think that’s more important. 
 

just wondering if anyone has found anything better?

I'm using the Alpha with a WarBRD base, and it very good. Since I'm flying VR exclusively, that clickable mouse wheel is a godsend. I've mapped it to mouse wheel and left mouse button (with the right mouse button the black button up and to the right), and it's working perfectly for all my modules. I'm also using a Virpil throttle; I'm still undecided wrt the Virpil collective.

Well im planning on keeping my TM Warthoug stick, but will upgrade it with the WB base from Virpil. And the collektive from Virpil also, thinking of ordering the OH 60 one 🙂

hopefull there will be upgrade parts for the Apache that are not over 1000€ 🙂

For me, the cyclic will be my brand new Constellation Alpha from Virpil and the collective will be the Thrustmaster Warthog throttle. I have as well a second screen to fit my thrustmaster MFDs and a Xbox controller I will use for the TEDAC

Same here....WW Taurus, Libra and collective. Hopefully WW will bring a new collective grip out in the not too distant future

Draken35,

 

I like what you have going with the addition of the gamepad.  I have TM Warthog combo myself.  If I buy just the gamepad can I add it by itself into DCS?  I currently have no other devices.  Thanks!

@gdotts Yes, the gamepad is just another independent controller in DCS... I haven't mapped anything to it yet, but it is recognized automatically by DCS ( as a matter of fact, some modules map some axis in the gamepad by default and I had to clear that).

I am using the same stick. I like all the functionality. My collective is the Virpil CM-3 throttle. Pedals are Virpil ACE.
