Recommended Posts

I usually play on my PC with gamepad, but is it possible to play X-Plane with only a keyboard and mouse?

Yep. I do it all the time when testing sceneries and I don't want to connect up all my stuff. It's not accurate but it can be done

Yes it is.

 

I am in transit at the moment so it is not worth buying a joystick so I did some messing around with the mouse. I found that after a bit of practice you can get reasonably decent flying with the mouse.

Yes it is, although far from be as user friendly as it was in MS FLIGHT. In MS FLIGHT the mouse was actually my preferred control, and some keyboard presses for the rudder :-) and it worked great. 

 

In XP once you use the mouse, auto-rudder is automatically set ON, and you cant override it.

 

One advantage is that flying with the mouse helps ironing some unwanted prop effects :-)
