I use a Cougar and Dunc's profile that's included with BMS, with some minor tweaks to taste.
I have trim on the top hat. But DMS, TMS and CMS are all on their own four-ways as well. Not sure what I'd do if I could only choose one of these. I guess TMS since I want that while eyes-up I reckon. Although you need a way to slew your cursors, and maybe it would be better for that? Not familiar with the HOTAS
X so don't know what you've got to work with.
