X-56 (or any HOTAS) controls for helicopters

Hey all, I’ve been searching, but didn’t find anything…

Is there any topic/video/site giving a base control configuration for HOTAS and helicopters? (I have an X-56).

I’d like to learn to fly these things, but right now I don’t even know which controls to assign (and where!)

There’s at least these ones :

Also read main threads for the Bell 407 and the Guimbal Cabri G2, we find plenty of advice in them :

I’ve found that the default settings for my X56 were perfect for helicopters. While I’m still learning how to fly helicopters with the X56 HOTAS, I never had the significant difficulties others are experiencing.

So my recommendation would be to try the default settings first and adjust them as needed.
