Hi,

I use the Saitek X52 pro, and am wondering what the best curves are for formation flying. At the moment, my curves are a bit touchy and uncontrollable at high speeds. Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks

Jamie

How fast are your high-speeds? 650 and more km/h?

There are no "best curves" for formation flying.  The people that use curve have spent time trying different settings, settings that work for them and their setup.  Everyone flies differently and everyone uses a different setup, it's because of this that if everyone on this forum posted the curves they use, they would all be different.  There are also a lot of people that use no curve.

Your best bet is to spend some time in your airplane and figure out what works best for you.  Don't expect to get some magical numbers from someone in this community and instantly be great at virtual formation flying. You need to spend the time in the sim.

Or you could ballpark 20-40% and call it a day (for getting started). Just to throw a number out... Tongue

I would caution you against using too much curve. It's a common mistake. There is no substitute for good stick control and, honestly, good equipment. (Have fun with Saitek sticks!  Grin)

If you want Jamie, I could send you my joystick profile with buttons assigned to it?
