Thrustmaster HEART really eases control jumpiness

Picked up a (likely used) Thrustmaster Airbus. The magnetic sensors really work well. My old but mostly reliable Sidewinder Precision Pro I’ve had since FS2004 had started to drift into a slight right hand bank which made trimming straight and level impossible.

Those magnets also make the new joystick require a bit more forceful input but nothing that results in ham-handedness. Took me almost an hour to map all 17 buttons - I didn’t care for the recognized mapping by FS 2020.

So far so good on a couple of VFR flights. Now to tackle some of the more jumpy mounts like the Pipistrel.
