All right, im still using the default input settings and i find them a bit too sensitive and not so smooth, very jerky.
I've been doing some changes in them but without success.
I have a Thrustmaster AB II No-FF and when im in a boom at 600kph in a 109 I need sensitive and smooth controls.
Would really appreciate if anyone would post some settings that would make my flying and shooting alot smoother.
Thanks in advance.

Bought a TM AB II myself and tried it in FB. After 2 weeks I gave up and went on, using my old Gameport-Fighterstick.

I tried several settings, some of them helped:

I changed my input settings to:

0,3,5,8,15,20,30,40,50,75,100

It helped me quite a bit, but it's a question of getting used to it.

Hope it will help ya.

i would be inclined to leave the last few at 100 and just soften the ones closer to centre


be aware that if you soften the centre it is absolutely critical you trim for level flight or your gunnery will get worse not better

Also note that 'Filtering' is to dampen the 'spike' signals coming from a worn joystick. But this is a two edged sword, the higher you raise 'Filtering' the slower the virtual stick will respond (watch the green box, that is what Il2 is reading, the red box is how your stick is actually moving), so it can cause you to overcontrol while 'waiting' for the filtered inputs to catch up, so to speak.

Deadband increases the centered size of your joystick. The larger the deadband you have, the smaller the 'physical throw' or movement (signals sent) that Il-2 can read. Hmm, there must be a better way to explain that, sorry. In short, keep your deadband as low as possible, use it only if you have very loose springs that do not return the stick back to center.

As to sensitivity, just keep lowering the sliders until you find something you like. If you lower them all to zero, you've gone to far. As long as the last (far right) slider is at 100 you will have full control authority. The other sliders can be as low as suits your stick (every stick is different, depending on age and brand).

When I was using the TM AB II, I found quite severe settings to be best. I used something like:


Pitch: 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 100 100 100

Roll: 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 100

Yaw: Default

Those aren't the exact settings I used, but close enough for a starting point.

I also fly online in AH which has a very similar j.stick in put and adjustment setting. Someone there suggested that I set the entire pitch and roll axis setting midway between zero and 100 - between 45 and 55 - I did and was very pleased with the result - smooth yet good response - I use the same setting on FB with the same result - not nearly as sensitive on take-off - stops those pesky ground loops - as well as allowing the zoomed in gunsight view without wobbling.

Try it and then tweak the setting to your preffered level.
