Thanks for the tip Penguin !

Realistic is a much better setting, so I will go through the tutorial. It is a little confusing where you can change this setting and where not. Im used to the good old PC IL-2 which was much less restricted, more intuitive and flexible.
I hate all the unlocking in console games, but in IL-2:BoP its easily worth it

BTW: I finished an upgrade of my HOTAS today and will include some pictures in progress tomorrow morning. Now I have an analog joystick on top for viewing, and have wired up the Attack command to a throttle button.

Tonight I will do some flying

Hands on throttle and stick . Means you don't need to take your hands off of your controls to activate anything, because you have enough buttons on it. X52 is a good example.

Rewiring of an Aviator just to swap button functions should be fairly easy, and nothing near the mess i will show you in the pics. I have taken an old PC gaming gear from the nineties and completely wired up all buttons and potentiometers to the inputs of a wireless X360 controller.
The stick you have is after all a compatible device, that just need a couple of mods.

After another night of flying (tutorial on realistic with landing) I must say that this game really grows on me ! Its so rewarding to down a few BF109s after a long intense dogfight with spins and near crashes, then head home for a rough but safe landing. Brilliant !

The only bug-issue i came across was a total system hang in the menu just after successfully completing the tutorial. Have had one before already. Any clues ?

Hope I havent scared you off from rewiring your Aviator dazz

That should be pretty straight forward.
Post some pics or questions if you need any suggestions on the way.
