I have so many things programmed onto the throttle controls/macros I think I'd struggle with anything else.....

Gonna struggle enough anyway remembering where I recently placed some shit when I dumped the button box......

Well, I use the three finger buttons on my ch to triple the hat functions.
Not lacking for buttons in ED.

And the arcade nature of the game lends itself to the quick and light throttle adjustment.
The long and heavy throw of the the warthog, yea I couldn't fly like I do with that I'm sure.
But I suppose I could give it a go considering:
► Show Spoiler


For now I use the throttle axes as landing gear and cargo levers....

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Now the ch throttle is great for elite.
But been getting into dcs with dawg and that needed something a bit more precise.

Not easy to fly the Huey when the collective jumps 8% randomly around main position.

And 5% could kill you...
And the tactile feel to switches is serious.
When you push a button on this, you will have to mean it.

But these things are not so great for a twitchy arcade game like ED.


That said I am actually considering returning it.
And get a virpil throttle instead...
