Printable Blanks For HOTAS And Other Controllers

Recommended Posts

I have gone through several changes on my HOTAS over the past day.

Finally, I just printed a dozen blanks to make it easier to keep track of things until I stop moving things around and am happy with the setup.

I had previously made PRINTABLE defaults from the manual, but they are already obsolete, so no hope there.


I imagine that as the modules are released we will be expanding on what we can do with these controls. This may assist you in keeping track of any changes you or CIG make in the future.


So here are some Printable Blanks that you can fill in and use for reference as you set up your XML control files. - DRUM out

As always, the blanks on the first entry can be used for custom builds. This layout can be printed to assist you while you are using//modifying your Sticks and Controls.

Minor changes to Default Keyboard - added to initial post and also below.


May come back and clean it up a little later - was a fast transform. Nothing changed on the other controllers in this thread since I just use the blanks and fill in changes.


Happy Trails - DRUM out

      So I've been rocking an okay joystick for a while, a Logitech Extreme 3D. It works well enough in Freespace 2, but in SC it's not precise enough and I can't aim well at all. I've moved to a mouse and keyboard setup since, and have drastically improved my combat aim. My question is if a better joystick might yield better results? I see people mentioning HOTAS controllers and dual stick controllers as options and was looking for feedback from the community.

      Hey all  
      So the story begins with I, myself wanted to buy the mounts for my desk, but unfortunately they were too expensive for me. So I ended up building table mounts for myself. As It worked out pretty well, I just wanted to provide good quality table mounts to people who can not afford more expensive ones. 
      So, here is the offer for you  
      Hotas Joystick and throttle mounts. Our joystick and throttle table mount products are compatible with Thrustmaster Warthog models.
       We can manufacture in other models as well. Please, contact us for this. 
      As our product development work continues and we are open for any feedbacks. 
      The mounts are made of aluminum and metal. So during shipping, small scratches might happen. 
      Each component is adjustable. So each of them could move back and forward, up and down.
      Easy to set up. Each product includes two pieces. All you have to do mount them together.  Please pm us to order. 
      Each product is 60 € + shipping cost. 
      Shipping costs for two pieces would be 15 € for Europe and 35 €  for United States.

      Hello fellow Citizens.
      I've got what is probably a noob question about how to use TARGET (Thrustmaster Software).
      I currently have in my possession 2 Warthog Joysticks (one standard and one left hand converted).  I also have a couple of MFD's and a set of set of Saitek combat pedals. SC needs 1 controller so TARGET is needed for the Joysticks and MFD's but not the pedals (please correct me if I'm wrong). Being a TARGET Noob, I havnt used it for anything more then simply binding the TM Warthog HOTAS (or the Warthog and a left handed T16000) together so SC can recognize them. TARGET sees the 2 Warthog Joysticks when you start TARGET, but when you go to create a new profile I can only see 1 Warthog Joystick. I'm now running the new version of TARGET (v3.0.16.615). I'll print the manual out and start reading, but I figure two warthogs may not be covered like for example 2 T16000 would be, or a Warthog and a T16000, both combinations of which you can see and select together in TARGET when you create a new profile. I'm sure this is a noob question for a seasoned TARGET user, but seasoned TARGET user I'm not!   Can anyone help me (or just point me in the right direction)?   Thanks in Advance.   ...  Fly well or die trying.

      Hey all,
      I have been around since the wing commander days of old on my dx66!
      Been playing the alpha game on my old saitek on my old sandy bridge ME4. Since upgraded today to a new APEX motherboard and 7700k and decided to splurge and picked myself up some goodies.
      Enter HOTAS and MFG pedals.......
      I cannot get them to work! Anyone know a good work around as I have tried a few custom uploads to my TARGET but for the life of me I am so old school and used to plug and play.
