I need to tap into your wisdom and experience! What would be the best peripherals for a VR simmer (HP Reverb G2)?
For the moment, I use a Thrustmaster T16000M (old version apparently, all grey with green central LED - the ones I see online seem to have orange accents). It works pretty well, but I’m having trouble really fine controlling the plane when trying to fly seriously (via FS Academy VFR lessons with small GA aircraft for now) - turning while judiciously controlling altitude and applying rudder via the Z-axis is hard! I have two buttons for flaps (up a notch, down a notch), two buttons for elevator trim (which I find really hard to adjust), and then buttons for gear up/down, brakes, pause & active pause, etc.
I’m looking at first getting rudder pedals. The Thrustmaster T.Flight pedals seem they will get the job done - any advice on those?
But then I have head of how amazing the Honeycomb Alpha is, and now I’m thinking about getting that in addition with the pedals above, and a Thrust quadrant from Logitech (with one of the thrust levers assigned to flaps, another to elevator trim, and another to thrust). Does that sound like a reasonable combination as an upgrade path from the simple flight stick I have?
Note that while I am a real-life paragliding pilot, I have never touched the controls of a powered aircraft, so no idea how they feel in real life.
