I'm not exactly sure where to post this because its about hardware but the problem is more likely with software.
If it's wrong, mods feel free to move it;)
I just bought a Thrustmaster Warthog Hotas (yeah, I know.. I couldn't resist. so.. shiny..) and I'm having some problems getting it to function the way I want it to. My issue right now is that it doesn't pick up the throttle at all. I can move that thing up and down and nothing happens.
The lights are on and all the buttons are functioning but the throttle does nothing. I've tried following several setup guides (like Clifford aka Miku's on youtube (though its a few years old)), tried loading different profiles (like Solarfly's) and still nothing. Ive messed around with the settings in Star Citizen for a few hours but it still. wont. work.

I'm on my way to build/Modify my Arrozi Verona to include my Saitek X55 HOTAS.
While I spend many hours to look around on the web what was already build for various gaming chair, I started to wonder what would be the best to place the joystick, on the right side or in the middle between legs? I think I would feel more confortable to place the joystick on the right, but if any of you already made the test I would be interrested to know which place you choose and why?
So, I am looking at a possible job that would have me on the road several days a week on some weeks. As such, I am looking at portable flight solutions. I have 3 or so power gaming laptops I am looking at so that part is handled. But, I need some sort of flight control system that is somewhat portable other than a gamepad. I have never liked gamepads myself and would rather do mouse/keypad. But, my preference is something stick based. Anyone have ideas? The x-56 allows you to detach the stick from it's base. But, overall, the thing is very bulky and I would prefer something more portable. Just looking for ideas from other folks. Preference is for something portable and stick based. Some ideas on some solutions I have looked at:
X-56: I like that the stick can detach from it's base, but even with that, it is still pretty bulky.
T16000m/FCWS: I like the low profile of the throttle and inexpensiveness of the stick if I have to replace it but would probably need to construct some sort of padded 'brace'/carrier to protect the stick.
G13/Orbweaver/Tarterus Keypad: I like this as an option combined with a good multi-button mouse or inexpensive stick
Logitech 3D Extreme: This used to be my main stay until I started doing HOTAS. The nice thing is that it is easy and cheap to replace if broken in transit
Multi-button/MMO mouse: I prefer stick based flying for the more 'natural' feel but could probably train myself to use a mouse if needed
Gamepad: Non-starter for me. This is one of the main reasons I have never been able to play on a console. I don't know what it is about a gamepad, but I just can't do it.
I will probably intermix Voice Attack as wel. This will mean I'll need 2 buttons for voice. One for VA and one for voice Comms.
Can folks think of other ideas or have experiences with anything like the ones I mentioned in a mobile kind of flight solution?
