    CH Products Control Map

    I searched around a bit, but didn't see anything (apologies if I was blind), but I was wondering if anyone had a CH Product Fighterstick, PT, PP control map they would like to share. Was looking for something to base my own setup on. Also, looking to get a throttle quadrant for more axis to control mixture, rpms.

    Update: Attached the map I ended up putting together. Open to suggestions or comments to improve it.

    Looks like no one has one on hand. Ended up grabbing a Throttle quadrant and setting up a map. Once i'm happy with my setup for my FS+PT+PP+TQ setup I'll post the mapping here for anyone interested.

    I've got the whole CH setup but I never tried a map. No real need for it that I've seen, what's the advantage?

    I found one a while back at the CH Hangar website. Have you looked there?

    I use CH Control manager maps as it allows me to abstract away from the HW layer. I can combine devices if I want, but what I mainly use it for is to make the buttons actually use the keyboard commands for the different actions, or shift actions, so that I can maintain the default controls for most items.

    =FI=Murph I had found one on there that didn't cover the TQ and had some mappings on the PT I didn't like too much. I ended up using that as my base for my mapping.

    I'm updating my original post with my my mapping if anyone has comments or suggestions.

    You need a button for "Wheel brakes" - if plan fly in British planes (right/left axis in pedal don't work for these), or use CH Mannager to make these axis press "B" under Shift, for example.

    On throttle:

    "Toggle War Emergency Power" (AFAIK) only put throttle in 100% - independent of physical throttle (HOTAS) position (this can by done just moving throttle ahead), and are not toggle ... not very useful... (a bad implemented command - or I missing something...).

    Instead use "War Emergency Power" that work in Bf 109 (HUD inform "Afterburner" ) and in Italian planes.

    On TQ.

    Propeller Pitch work in inverse way - relative to Spit/Hurri...) on Bf.109 and are a momentary UP/DOWN switch, for this plane use one these rocker in TQ base. PP in axis is fine for another planes. Or better, in the unused HAT on throttle, similar in Bf.109 E4.

    BTW - CLoD Controls GUI allow you do make copy of commands (e.g. Increase and decrease prop pitch) and assign different keys for this copy.

    Thanks for the guidance. After playing a bit more and taking into consideration what you said I've updated the Map a bit more. I'll be uploading a new version once it is finalized.
