Gamepad and some Mallorca shots

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

inspired by P_7878 and his Xbox I was interested to see if I can fly in the simulator by using a gamepad as main controller on a pc.

I don't have a Xbox but I have a standard gamepad in the drawer which I bought some time ago to try something out. But I never used it instead of the joystick.

So I started my old PC where I usually don't fly and my one and only joystick is plugged into the simulator. On the old PC I still have an installation of XP10

and so I plugged in the gamepad there. And fired up XP10 and I could assign the x,y and z axis to the main pins there. There are more pins and buttons

all around the thing but I have the other keys all assigned to the keyboard.

Very interesting: It worked from the first second on without problems for planes, helicopter is a bit more difficult, have to practice that, it's too sensitive.

A big advantage is that the gamepad is much smaller on the desk. So such a gamepad can be used for flying on a pc and I can learn more how to do it.

I did a little flight around Mallorca and did some shots from the old scenery in XP10.

The scenery is made of Spain UHD orthoscenery which is originally for XP10, simheaven overlay for XP10 and the nice scenery for Palma area @Mallorca_10.1.6.

and the LEPA airport freeware for XP10 by TDG.

Inspired by Xbox....🙂...Oh well...PC is PC and Xbox is Xbox....including the fact that my teenager is more interested in Xbox gaming...🙂...of which MSFS is part of...

Anyway, a good trial...Andreas...!

Yes PM_7878, didn't exactly know what you have connected to the Xbox, of course with a Thrustmaster and a keyboard the Xbox will behave similar to a PC. 🙂

But I am still running an interesting test on the older pc where I fly only with the gamepad. And at least for planes it works quite well....it's easy.
