Maybe this is old news, but I found that when I put a more curved profile against joystick, and
increased the filter value - Il2 is, not exagerating, magically transformed - I can now shoot aeroplanes down! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
I always found it difficult to get sights on aeroplane, ie my plane would 'bob' around while trying to line up.

If you can, please post the config to assist others, with the name of your controller:

Here's mine:

Logitech 3D pro:

Pitch - 0,4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81,100 (x^2 curve!) , filter=0.8
Roll (same) , filter=0.8
Yaw, 0,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,100, filter=0.5

I dreamt these value up quickly, so if you have better, please post.

thanks,

pat.

I'll post mine for the hell of it but I'm sure its down to personal preference:

Saitek Evo Cyborg:

Pitch and Roll:
50,60,70,80,90,92,94,96,98,100 - filter =0
Yaw (default)

I tend to wait til I'm close to real close before even thinking about letting the rounds go. The stick is sensitive but it works for me.

Then again, gun convergence on MG and cannons is set at 150m


Before I got the above stick I used an MSFFB with the following:

Pitch and Roll:
60,70,80,90,92,94,96,98,99,100 - filter = 0
Yaw (Default)

Mine are listed in this article (http://www.airwarfare.com/tech/sticks.htm#006%20Setting%20up%20axis%20sensitivity ) as "The Author's" settings.

Unless there's a problem with your joystick, ditch the filtering, it slows your joystick responses down. Learn to apply your joystick inputs smoothly and gently instead, the end result is more effective and transfers better to other sims.
