T,
I assigned my gear to the spacebar.
And my controller is an oldRaider joystick where L/R=ailerons F/B=elevator & rotate(twist) l/r for rudder. It has buttons for trim, flaps, spoilers, & a tophat for view & a roller for throttle!
Found it for under $5 at a local habitat for humanity store.
Mike.(Cheapskate)

When you get your FSX there is a setup page that allows you to see what the default keys are for switching views, transmitting on the radio & etc.
It also allows you to reassign the switches on your joystick.

well with all the functions that the x52 pro has i can assign all functions to it but i will only use certian functions on the controller though. but the yoke is cheaper with the pedals. Or i might get all the stuff. joy stick yoke and pedals. so i can use the throttle as normal or atlest use them for the functions atleast. but only time will tell. i am just gonna get the stuff when ihave the money and set up a desk from there.

Me and my daughter took the Diaomond 20 to Williston (X60) from Keystone Heights (42J) last Thursday morning for breakfast at the "Pyper Kub" cafe for biscuits and gravy. Very good and a beautiful flight. Try it on FSX with the clouds set at broken 1000' and tops at 3000' should look like this.

Diamond flight to Williston Fl (9 min 30 sec)

That's true, I should have known JT would not be talking to me on the radio? HA. We are going to be getting a DA-40 DiamondStar at our airport for rent in a few months. That will be a fun trip plane I better be saving my pennies for the rental fee.

BTW,
that elevated lake outside Chattanooga is the Racoon Mtn. pumped-storage plant.
more info here: http://www.tva.gov/sites/raccoonmt.htm
It's a hydroelectric storage area!
Neat huh?
