What are some useful keybinds to use for a 12 button flight joystick?

Recommended Posts

I will be getting a flight joystick soon. I've been using a gamepad controller all this time. But in the meantime, what are some useful features to bind to the joystick buttons? I have 12 buttons to use. I'd like to get away from using my keyboard/mouse as much as possible to make flying a bit more immersive.

Mainly the PMDG 777, Aerosoft Airbus, and Realair Legacy, which are the planes I fly the most.


Thanks guys, I will give those a try! :)
