Question on Zooming with axis on Thrustmaster Throttle

Recommended Posts

Question for those gurus in here!! There is a hand axis that is on the throttle when you grab it, pictured below. It stays centered and you can pull it right or left. I assume this was meant for quick snap views around if you dont have trackir. But, it also works well as a quick zoom with one issue. 

 

I have my zoom set in cockpit and saved via F10.  When I use this axis to zoom, it works great but then it re-centers back on the original zoom of the aircraft and not the saved one. I have to remap "reset zoom" to get it back to normal. 


Is there a way I can  make the centered part of this control axis the "modified default zoom" so when I release it, it re-centers but re-centers on my modified zoom that I saved??

I think that's intended for rudder pedals.

 

I know, not an answer to your main question 🤪

I've tried with something similar, and I could not figure a way to do it and still keep the hat functional.

yeah I like the axis for quick zooming. It works fantastic. But the rest back to default zoom and then clicking a button to "reset" to my modified zoom is a pain. I wish there was a way to modify the center of this axis to be "back" from center so when its released, on the axis panel, its centered to the "left" instead of dead center.

I thought it could be that as well. Works great for takeoff rudder trim. I guess I will just have to map the reset zoom to the button right behind it. I wish I could calibrate it in game and pull it back slightly to call that center.
