A lot of players come to DU from Elite Dangerous or SC and are unhappy with the lack of HOTAS support.
Important note with implementing better controls: Make sure multiple different controls can 'work in tandem'For example, allow pressing keyboard keys while also banking/pitching with a joystick, without it interrupting or switching control focus!
My Warthog is waiting for you !
On top of HOTAS support, there should be other connector tools/code hooks for Sim Pit setups or just general configuration modifications
Joystick and HOTAS support
Yep agree oddly I put my request for hotas and flight stick support twice and got deleted, I hope they do. It till then I’m leaving the game as can’t fly with a keyboard abs mouse at all, rather go play star citizen that actually gives the option. Shame as like the game just seems lacking something so simple as what we asked many months ago
As the title says, please let this be added. Some of use prefer not to use a keyboard for flight as it’s very cumbersome to control and a chore.
i am game for this. x52 and g13. be nice to have some control over my ship with them hotas commands
I would also love HOTAS support, it will make piloting much more immersive and interesting
Remember that for ultra-high-end Hotas gear *REQUIRE* multiple joystick devices. One for flight stick, one off hand (hotas or another flight stick), another for foot pedals.A hotas Warthog set costs $1600 CDN. You'd definitely want to support this as these players would probably have enough cash to spend in your future cash shop.
I would like to see support for game pads like the xbox one controllers. Right now DU has some support for game controllers, but the very important buttons are bind to the mouse left click, and right click, and they cannot be unbind, or bind to another device to use those functions. I would really like all the keys on both the keyboard, and mouse to be bind to what every device you have.

More customs for remapping i have to use rewasd right now for controller support i play with an xbox controller
In my book in a game like this HOTAS support is a must! Being able to use a joystick for threading the needle would be so much better. It's rough using the mouse and keyboard.
As I fly mostly 1st person I would love to see this feature and believe it would add to the emersion in relation to the player experience.
I would love to use my X52 HOTAS for flight.
Please add analogue control for us all... I've been waiting ages and my sticks and pedals are getting really dusty.
ive already seen this working in a dev video before beta, why is it not implemented4 billion alternate universes and im in the one where NQ decided that foundations of control are irrelevant
Need this !!! got 1200 $ of dusty virpil gear waiting to be used
with a bit of Lua configuration too for controllers.I'm following this thread.
