EZCA with conveniently mapped buttons and keys?

 

A separate inexpensive joystick such as one by Logitech for the hat switch alone (can also be used for Airbus aircraft)?

 

TrackIR?

Yes!! A man after my own taste! Since I moved to that, my hat, even when I fly with the joystick which has a hat, is useless. I so much go used to EZCA keys, that it's WAY faster to change anything than with the hat...

Consider this: if you are right handed, then you fly with the joystick, and each time you want to click something, you have to hat-move first, then move the hand onto the mouse and click, or you can pan with the mouse conveniently, like I do (FSUIPC allows for that).

If using EZCA, I press the button, with the right hand already on the mouse, and it changes to the throttle view, for example, on which I just then have to press cutoff buttons.

Also looking left or right is super-fast, I have it mapped to 9 and 0 keys on the keyboard.

The two are not exactly the same. The hat switch is a free-panning device, while EZCA involves setting and accessing custom views (you can also adjust camera shake). Therefore, with EZCA, you will not have the same instantly accessible freedom of head movement, but can still largely replace the hat switch by creating different cockpit views and then quickly and smoothly switching between them at the press of the hardware button or keyboard shortcut you assign.
