I need some help with my stick settings because i am having trouble keeping my target on my opponents and manuevering when they fly by and i stall out because of it.... someone told me 20,60,80 then 100 for the rest but forgot to ask him wether it was for pitch yaw or roll? anyone have any ideas what it might be for or recommend any good stick settings.? thanks!

Hey mate look at the thread I posted also, you will find a link to good joystick FB utility you can switch between profiles (joystick sensitivity values) with one click! Thanks to FoolTrottel http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Stick settings can only help so much... the rest is up to the pilot.

If you apply full control input at almost any speed you'll stall/spin regardless of most stick settings. You have to learn to be gentle in most manouvers, easing the aircraft into the manouver.

For take off, if you have the Torque & Gyro Effects difficulty setting turned on you'll need loads of rudder to stay straight on the runway. It will take a bit of practice at first, but you'll get the hang of it. It helps if you ease the throttle up slowly rather than slamming it straight up to full.

Filtering and deadband shouldn't be necessary unless your joystick is faulty, but if you're a bit hamfisted you may find you stall & spin less with a bit of filtering. If this is the case it's a good indication you're jerking the controls around to savagely or using too much control input when you begin the manouver.

Mine for the Saitek X-52 are:

Roll: 25 29 35 43 53 63 76 89 97 100
Pitch: 30 36 43 51 60 70 81 91 97 100
Yaw: 30 34 39 44 51 58 69 80 90 100


But what is right for you will depend very much on:
1. Your joystick
2. The aircraft you're flying
3. Your flying style
4. How you like it to feel.

Your best bet is to try a few different settings and see what suits you. Just make sure that whatever settings you try, keep the curve smooth. There shouldn't be too big a jump from one slider to the next, so that if you "join the dots" between sliders you'll get a nice smooth curve.
