Aviator joystick with helicopters

Post by stewartkingswood » Thu Feb 19, 2009 4:15 pm

Hi All,

I wonder if someone can give me a litlle guidedence in flying helicopters with the saitek aviator joystick. I am trying to fly helicoters but do not appear to have all the controls available via the joystick. The main problem is in flying forward, I can take off and land but when I push the joystick forward the copter starts to loose altitude.

Has anyone created a saitek profile for flying copters?

Hears hoping
Regards
Stewart
