Looking for some feedback/suggestions on my current HOTAS binds. I’m considering putting OC on the cyan throttle dpad, as it’s where my thumb rests naturally and is easy to control. Currently I end up struggling with OC on the 8-way hat above it, because it’s awkward to hit and I end up getting a diagonal instead. I’m not sure about it though because I don’t know if micromanaging OC is important enough to warrant it, and I keep thinking there must be something more important I can put on that button group.
The radials are kind of a pain to get to as well. Combine that with the fact that I am using head tracking for CursorX/Y and you have a perfect recipe for annoyance with managing systems and weapons. The deceptively obvious solution here is to put radials on the cyan switch but… no. I don’t need them that often lol.
I’d love some suggestions of things to put on the dozen buttons on the base of the joystick. I’m considering moving the radials there and putting CursorX/Y on the green throttle switch, but haven’t had time to play with how that feels.
I’m also trying to come up with something to put on the throttle ministick click. I used to have Brake there, but I kept getting overly excited in combat and putting the brakes on accidentally.
And I’m at a loss as to what axis to put on the antenna. I think when I get around to doing capship binds I’ll probably use that one for viewdist (currently mapped to the throttle on the base of the joystick, which I’ve just noticed isn’t labeled on this diagram, hmm).
