Well I do use controllers to simulate too, and a controller as XBOX One Controller is very suitable for simulation, considering that this device has two triggers to simulate the two axis of peddals. To coordinate these movements in the brain like the actual movements of pedals, let's say that logically it is much better than using a joystick with a torsion axis. It is good to know the opinions of the aerosoft administrator, so I know that aerosoft products in general are not made for those who do not have a complete simulation package, it is something to be avoided especially if we have aerosoft aircraft. Yoke real pilots must freak out when their company changes aircraft to a joystick one! Disappointing.
