Returning to EECH after years not playing it. Had an old slow pc and one of those cheap Logitech joysticks that made controlling the helo difficult, and programming buttons so you could fight in it impossible..

Now have a new pc and a Thrustmaster T Flight HOTAS X. The stick is calibrated fine but I can't seem to get the controls to change, do I need to do that in the eech ini file? Twisting the stick in the z direction increases and decreases the engine rpm; I can't quite work out if the throttle is the collective and what the slider does seems totally random.

I have searched on this and found lots of nearly right answers, but nothing that really helps. What am I doing wrong?

Foot down, head down...
