    Rudder trim alternative

    The solution is the same implemented for RoF: " AI-autopilot for level flight: on/off", use this for straight and long flights.
  4. Saitek X CH - if user have out of warranty issues: Saitek - Basically rest trow away and buy another, if user are not able to fix without manufacturer support : https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=160247 CH - Buy from CH (some guys receive free) new pots and replace: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=219859 If available is good pay extended warranty for Saitek.
  5. As usual another "veteran casual player" is leave in thin air... without parachute. 😀 http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4452524/re-internal-view#Post4452524 Of course this is not bug, but bad controls name, what in STEAM default version can be fixed with Keygets and Notepad.
  6. GVL224 don't make stick extensions. Know manufactures is VirPil, MFG, Sahaj - but all straight. Only VKB make a 20 cm with some "S" offset - but is compatible only with their own Gunfighter base. Some guys are experimenting create curved/offset extension with 3D Printer: http://forums.eagle.ru:8080/showthread.php?t=209442 https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=3571984
  7. 8 axes is a Windows and/or games limitation. T-50 already use 6 axes, so is only possible create more two "virtual axes" with encoders. TARGET is limited to use 8 axes, 32 buttons in their virtual device.
  8. Thing is that in OP asked price range, options are "entry-level" models all with potentiometer (two with low cost/quality models) that offer "brakes" and one with good quality construction, electronics, sensor (on par with "high end models - BRD, MFG, Slaw, TPR...), but without brakes. It's almost a trade: better rudder control by brakes. IMO - If brakes ate that important, OP should get CH, despite be "vintage" will last more than other two options together.
  9. Easy to know - without own T-Rudder. Start IL-2, set a button on your joystick or throttle for "Wheel Brakes". Then select an Bf 109, Fw 190 or P-40 (planes that IRL have "toe brakes) throttle up a bit for plane move, now press the keys for rudder left or right or twist you stick (if has "twist rudder") and after press the button assigned for "Wheel brakes" . Result: only the wheel in the side you move the rudder is braked. This is "differential brakes". In Bo'X any plane can use brakes in this way (I guess for support "twist rudder" stick players). VKB T-Rudder T-Link software is needed for other games, eg. DCS World, CloD... and just for planes that don't have native "differential brakes", e.g. Bf 109, Fw 190, P-51, the software allow brake then in this way.
  10. Options - with "toe brakes" - up $200: Thrustmaster TFRP - ~$80 CH PRO Pedals - ~$120 Logitech (Saitek) G PRO Flight Rudder Pedals - ~$170 (some places ask absurd prices) CH have the better construction - sturdy plastic with steel rollers and better quality potentiometer, but use obsolete (1999) resolution (8 bits) controller. Thustmaster and Saitek have 10 bits (or more) resolution controller but use low cost/quality potentiometer Slight above $200 - option without "toe brakes" but with software that emulate virtual "differential brakes" (like Spifire brakes) in joystick button. FYI - For IL-2:GB this VKB software is not needed because this game have "differential brakes" in any planes - besides "toe brakes" if applicable (e.g. Bf 109, P-40 allow use both systems). VKB T-Rudder - ~$220 (X-Plane.org store) - metal construction, bearings in pivots, contactless sensor, ARM32 controller, and have distinct operation, move up-down instead back forth.

    Africa 60", mercenaries "paradise". The guy at ~1:50:30 with M1930 remember Rambo movies - taking cover in some bushes and "spraying".
  12. You can add more functionality to your stick using an keymapper to implement "shift" and "mode", e.g for use HAT for trim and something else under "shift". Options is Joy2Key, Joystick Gremlin, Xpadder, SVMapper. Sample of "shift" with Joy2key: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/30538-setting-a-shift-button-with-a-t-flight-hotas-x/?do=findComment&comment=498360
