Sorry no, you must have a joystick, preferably one with a twist grip for rudder control. But it doesn't need to be an expensive one; mine cost no more than US$25 and has served me well for the last 2 years.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

When travelling with a laptop I use a Saitek dual analogue gamepad rather than a joystick. Very light and compact, with all the control and functionality you need. The left joystick controls pitch and roll, the right controls rudder. I don't map the fore/aft axis of the right stick, using up down control for the throttles (the left and right triggers, in fact).Before that I used the keyboard. It is possible, in calm conditions, but I had to adjust sensitivities to get anything like stable control. You really need to swallow your pride and enable autorudder, because keyboard yaw control is almost impossible.Kevin
