So do you guys have a flight stick if so which one ? considering to get one as the one i've got is cramped to hold with two hands, so thinking of upgrading i've got a cyborg x controller and getting to all the buttons easily isnt fun.

I use a hotas, currently using a Saitek X55 Rhino however due to some issues with it I have managed to scrape enough to get a X56 should be spending the money on other stuff but I need a Hotas otherwise I cannot play Elite.

If you want to get a Hotas try the Thrustmaster one to start with as it's quite cheap and whilst not having a lot of buttons you can get the main essential buttons mapped on to it, and then if you like it you can move to something better and if you don't like a Hotas then it's not expensive.

You might be able to find it cheaper if you look around.

Another vote for T Flight X, it splits in the middle so you can have stick/throttle each side of the keyboard.

Or go nuts and get a CH Fighter Stick/Throttle or a Thrustmaster Warthog. There'll be no lack of control options then.

Some over on the Star Citizen side are swearing by a pair of T16000M sticks instead of a HOTAS.

To be honest I started with the Tflight and eventually moved on to the X55 Rhino, because of the buttons and layout, that is why I have a X56 coming on Thursday.

The buttons have started to fail on the X55 but my dad who is getting the X55 of me is just going to pull it apart, and redo all the wiring in it using Prototyping Wire and Heat Shrink and then some self amalgamating rubber tape over the joints when needed.

I have everything mapped to my Rhino and don't need to touch the keyboard for anything unless I want to use the free cam which I very rarely do, or typing a message or system name, and my mouse get's used in the galaxy map but other than that everything is on the controller.

I will need to look at the bindings as they are abit all over the place but this is them currently.

been looking at the X56, kicking my self as we had these in stock at work and we are sold out and i cannot order one.

Might see how i get on with the game further before i spend £150+ for a controller i tried the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Joystick at work and i didnt like it, rather stick with my current set up than that.

Still feel very lost in this game lol

I know quite a few of you have done this run already, but I finally made it out to Jaques Station... So good to be back civilisation after being "at sea" for nearly 4 weeks! Only about 6,000 LY to my destination.

..and then I have to get back!







I started bookmarking my journey legs after I'd already gone a good few thousand LY. Definitely have to install ESDM.

It really depends on what you want to do. I'm trying to get back into it, so I've found a modest trade route I'm running, nets me $2m an hour or so, and I'm going to get enough cash together to buy and outfit an AspX and then go and try some of the engineer stuff.

Are you coming into it completely fresh (are you in a sidewinder?).

Well... I made it. This is what I travelled over 32,000LY to see. Pretty uninspiring.



Now for the 26,000LY trip home... and I have 2 days left to do it to meet my passenger's timescales. Yeah, that ain't happening.

The only thing that is saved on your pc is the control settings and graphics settings which can be found here if you have it installed on your c drive.

C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous\Options

Back up that folder and then when you reinstall the game, run it and close it and then copy this folder back over and all your controls etc will be like they were before you reinstalled it.

This is pretty much how I have it set up other than I am using the extra 2 hat switches for the free cam.

I will get the one later today for my X56 though.
