Hi:

I've had Oleg's settigs dialled into the joystick curve in FB options ever since they were posted. In the interim, I installed an Uber Nxt mod into my Cougar. Anybody have suggested settings for the joystick now. In Flaming Cliffs, I use a linear curve because of the advanced flight model.

Thanks

I made my own curves long ago for a/c with sensitive elevators like the T-bolt and Fw, and even toned the roll way down on the initial part to make the Fw more manageable.

I would say to set your curves, and fly QM's until you get the right feel. Curves are very subjectve: stick throw, elbow room, do you need fine adjustment or rapid movement? Find what is right for you, and you'll probably like it better than a setting someone gives you.

I used to use Oleg's curves too, until during one patch the P-47's pitch was so sensitive even the AI was snap stalling and augering in. I made my own, starting at 2 or 3 and curving slightly until I reached halfway on my throw, and made it steeper from there. Hope this helps, good luck and

I set my curves using the HOTAS CCP and leave them alone with the games, that way my stick behaves the same no matter which title I launch.

Regarding the NXT, the biggest difference regarding the curves (for me) was near the center. Losing the axis detents or flats was causing me to over steer, and was most noticeable when firing. So I initially made HUGE deadzones. But after some time getting used to it I am down to a 2 on the deadzones. The most noticeable difference in a dogfight is the granualrity (probably more due to the hall sensors than the new gimbals) of the movement, I seem to be able to ride the horn better and have augred many an opponent since the upgrade.

prsonally i've always favoured using conf.ini for sensitivity over CCCP for fb. It is still very much a matter of trial and error to get a profile that suits the plane(s) you fly most and your flying style (and of course your opinion of how you think said plane should respond http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )

might be of use to you (particularly if cougar is not on ID1)

on my standard cougar i've always used quite agressive settings
aileron=0 28 37 46 55 63 71 78 88 97 100 0
brakes=0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0
elevator=0 20 30 40 47 55 66 74 84 94 100 0
flaps=0 0 0 10 30 50 70 80 90 100 100 0
power=0 55 63 66 73 78 82 87 92 96 100 0
pitch=0 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 0
rudder=0 25 32 39 48 55 63 71 81 90 100 0
trimaileron=0 2 5 7 9 11 13 15 15 15 15 0
trimelevator=0 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 50 0
trimrudder=0 5 10 15 20 22 25 30 36 43 50 0
(trim/flaps on secondary controller)

How this translates to an uber i'm not sure (but hopefully i'll find out in the not too distant future http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

good luck with the 'testing'

Thanks for the info guys. I heartly recommend the Nxt. It is quality craftsmanship and makes the Cougar a joy to work with. Prices have come down from the Uber days. As a matter of interest, Cubby now has a throthle as well as RCS and Elite Rudder Hall mods.
