On the keyboard, read the reference sheet to see the default key settings but you can change them to anything you like in Controls. On your joystick, it's up to you which keys you use for which function.

Entirely up to you. This sim is nothing if not configurable! I have a FlightStick Pro with four fire buttons and a 4 way hatswitch. I have TrackIR for view control so use :

Fire 1 : Guns
Fire 2 : Cannons
Fire 3 : Guns + Cannons
Fire 4 : Weapon 3 (usually rockets)
Hat Left/Right : Gunsight/Normal View

I did have Hat Up/Down assigned to prop pitch in FB+AEP but with carrier ops being a little more "hands on" am unsure whether to map to brakes or flaps up/down as yet. I may map wheel brakes to Fire 4 and have Hat Up/Down as flaps, thinking about. All my engine controls are on the numeric keypad.

Lots of keys, lots of fun. Especially when you start playing with bombsights http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
