There is a target camera that locks onto the target and yes the camera returns to center when you let go of the hat switch.

Does the target lock work in sim as well? I assume this is different the "look around" feature?

BTW good times on World At War the other day, you laugh a lot as do I so it was nice to get to "meet" you. Really looking forward to laughing at all those sucka squads we're going to be swatting from the sky!!!!

Hi there,

I am in the same case as you are. I have a Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS on the PS3.
I am a bit worried that the hat switch will not perform very good on this joystick, simply because this one isn't progressive and has only 8 positions. So what if I want to take a look at 1 or 11 o'clock? Will this be possible? or if we click right or left on the hat switch, are we forced to look at 90°?

I was just wondering...

Any opinion?

regards,

This is exactly what I was wondering about! Its going to stink not being able to look fluidly all around. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait! I am sick of waiting all ready!!

So does the button have positions you can feel as you move it around?

The AV8R moves fluidly, like it's on a ball joint.

Yes that's right... you can feel all the positions and it is not like the saitek aviator. I will see on the demo if that works fine anyway but I think it won't if this hat button is dedicated to the "look around view".
