    Custom control panel - binding led switches

    Hi, I use x52 pro hotas, and wanted to get away from using my keyboard. After a bit of googling I found out about joystick encoders sold on ebay. Spent 20 quid on an encoder, some buttons and switches, and a sheet of carbon fibre printed vinyl. Used some scraps of plastic sheeting I had to...

    HOTAS trouble

    Hi Folks! First-time player, long-time idiot, here! I played the game on my PS4 and loved it! I even managed a decent little courier business for myself. Then I decided it was time to go all out (and I mean ALL OUT). I have bought all I need to make a computer desk in the form of a fighter...

    Audible Center Detent for Thrustmaster T16000M HOTAS...

    Hello, I hope this is as helpful for someone else as it has been for me. I am a very new Elite Dangerous player, and like many, I grabbed myself a Thrustmaster T16000M HOTAS set, and went about configuring it. I had done my research, so I knew that it lacked a throttle axis center detent, but...

Been playing on and off these past 5 years, and earlier today I replaced my trusty but well worn TM T-Flight Hotas X with a shiney new TM T16000 and TWCS throttle.

    Elite vs Mechwarrior 5 - Controls

    Last night I bought MechWarrior 5, I was excited since the last good mech game I played was MW4 Mercenaries in the mid 2000's. Anyway so I startup the game and begin setting up my hotas. It sees my joystick and throttle but not my rudder pedals, ok. It tells me I can directly write to the config...

    No context menu when using T-FLIGHT X, results in keybind conflicts

    Playing on PC I recently borrowed an xbox version t-flight x to test whether it would be worth buying one, I decided it was and purchased a Playstation version from ebay. I should clarify first that the xbox version worked perfectly, didn't even need to set it up. However with this new one the...

    T16000M HOTAS hoja de cálculo

    !Saludos! Soy nuevo en ED (primer juego en el que llevo 60 hrs., y me sigo sintiendo nuevo). Hice esta hoja de cálculo para el T16000M HOTAS. Lo que les puede ser útil no son tanto los atajos de teclado, sino la hoja de cálculo en sí, para que anoten los suyos. Si no pueden crear una copia...

    Returning Vet. Left in 2016 and need squad and hardware advice.

    So I need a squad for general faffery. I don't do pvp much and just want a community to get back into the game. Also, I need hardware advice. Should I get an x52 HOTAS or x56 for $30 more? I do VR and need something better than KB/M.

    Discussion Reference card wanted for Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS

    EDRefcard doesn't support this but I like the idea, so does anyone have a fillable reference card or even a largish-size drawing of the Thrustmaster Cougar HOTAS that I can manually complete?

    [Controls][HOTAS] Double-function buttons

    Hello FDevs, A simple idea that would significantly increase number of functions that player can assign to his/her HOTAS setup (we never have enough buttons for our needs): make every button double-function: short click will work as it works now long click (holding button for 1s or something...

    Hey @all, I have a question about my HOTAS setup. I reconfigured my Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog to control ED without the TARGET software. But now I have no dead zone between my forward movement and the backwards movement on my throttle axis. So it is very hard to full stop the ship for the...

    I'm trying to build a script that reads a text file and line by line to automatically feed waypoints, for example to plan a neutron highway route.

    General / Off-Topic Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS One Flight Stick for Xbox One and Windows review

    Allow all buttons/knobs to be usable on the x56 HOTAS

    With the introduction to the FSS system, I find it odd that you are only able to use two of the for potentiometers and other buttons in ED. Specifically, the RT3, RT4 knobs are useless, and the SLD (slider) is also useless. Why can't we use these to fine tune radio frequencies? How about...

    My x52 HOTAS have more buttons than I know what to do with. I would love it if I could assign 3 different buttons/actions into one fire group instead of the two action cap. Lets say your mining; one fire group could hold the prospecting limpet, collector limpet, and the mining laser all in one...
