After just reading another thread about pedals, I thought: let's have a poll (don't we love polls!).

If you ticked "Other" anywhere, please explain, what you use instead the listed things.

Good idea Olham. Perhaps you should add a category for those of us who use levers to control throttle, choke, etc. Also, I picked the TIR4 option but I am using the TIR5 software with TIR4, (not that this would really affect the results of your poll at all).

What is a lever?

I also have bought a TrackIR 4 hardware (and chose that above), but with TIR 5 software, like you. Works fine!

Sorry Olham, I should have said "quadrant". I am likely the only one who set up a retro style throttle lever on the left side of the keyboard.

Lou, your throttle would technically be the joystick slider, but I like your set-up. The only reason I haven't copied it is because I can imagine my wife's reaction the first time she used the computer after it's installation. For the censor's sake, I won't repeat it here.

 

Olham, would you consider modifying your tracker type choices to include Track IR 3 w/Vector (which is what I use)? The basic TIR3 was only 2dof, but could be transformed to 6dof with the Vector adaptor addon. TIR4 was the first that had native 6dof capability.

Okay, done so - but now check your answers on that one, everybody.

It's all gone into "TrackIR 3 with Vector 6 dof)" after the change.

I selected "Other" in the View choice because I use a combination of TIR5 and a programmed "enemy air" snap view joystick button.

 

And thanks for setting up the poll. :good:

Just as an aside, in addition to Saitek Pedals, I am using a Saitek Throttle Quadrant and the accompanying SST programming software for setting up my Throttle Quadrant buttons in addition to my Cyborg Evo Force Feedback Joystick buttons. I have setup the throttle axis, the mixture axis and (lord forbid!) the elevator trim axis on the Throttle Quadrant levers. And I am using the three rocker switches on the Throttle Quadrant for each of following six keyboard commands: Toggle HUD (F5), Toggle Labels (Ctrl+Shft+L), Toggle TAC (Shft+T), Cycle TAC Display (T), and Cycle TAC Display Range (Ctrl+Shft+T) and also Engine Auto-Start (E). I had to follow UncleAl's advice to change the several multi-keypress commands I wanted to use as single-keypress commands to satisfy the SST programming restrictions. So I now can clear the screen of HUD, Labels and TAC displays by toggling three buttons by sense of touch (I don't have to look at the keyboard anymore!)
