Warthog and tiller ?

Wow that looks really cool, I’ve been looking for a plug and play tiller.  I assume P3D just sees it as another axis?

I can’t read anything on that page but is the tiller 199.99 euros and the piece to attach to a desk another 29.99?

Yes, I'm using it in P3D via FSUIPC as another axis. The device is connected via USB and is recognized by the PC as "JoyWarrier A8-8 " (plug and play).

You can translate the page via Google translator. The tiller itself costs 200 Euros and the attachment for the desk another 30 Euros.

Hey guys , I just bought the warthog what are you guys using for the tiller ?

I use the grey slider on the base of the throttle unit, right side of the throttle levers. Work's just fine with its centre detent, even though it's not self-centring like the real one.

I use the same...works like a charm.

Yep, I agree it works beautifully with no tweaking whatsoever with any software at my end.

Me too. The only thing I miss is a spoiler axis. For that, I use the throttle axis of an old Logitech Wingman Attack 2 positioned near the Warthog throttle.

That's genius - I'm definitely going to change mine now!

It's only half-genius, you loose that axis for speedbrakes ;) Also make sure you give the axis a little bit of a curve in its slope using FSUIPC, that will help for small adjustments on straight taxiways.

Noted on the FSUIPC curve. I use the grey thumb button (almost looks like a H) for speedbrakes...push forward to retract and pull towards you to extend.

Same here I use the slider on the right of the throttles. I set the axis and configure it in P3D. In P3D set the slider to "Axis Steering Set". The only thing I use FSUIPC for is throttles. Mainly since it lets me set the left for engines 1/2 and right for 3/4 on 4 engine aircraft.

I set the speedbrake switch(top grey switch on side of throttle) for well speedbrakes Back (spring loaded position) for arm/disarm and forward for extend/retract

For those who hesitate, here follow my configuration for the A3XX. The advantage is to have all under the hand while vacating the runway. No need to click any button during taxi.

Most of them are FSUIPC mouse macros, others are direct P3D buttons assignments. If that can help...:rolleyes:

No Rafal. I just remember by flying hours and hours (when my girlfriend is out :D).

Even if there is a small difference with Boeing aircrafts, I try to keep the same functions for all buttons. I am very happy with this kit.
