Hi all. I took a sabbatical from flying my lightly scuffed CIII for a couple of years and did things like get married, buy a house and so on. Now I have a Study in which to Play I am getting back into some games that I love. Like Oolite.

I already overcame most of my problems and even found some old savegames. However, one thing eludes me: I've got a (cheap) Thrustmaster T.Flight Stick X joystick - the one without the separate throttle stick and I'm not sure how I should map the controls in a way that seems natural. Other than the obvious flight and fire controls, I never end up using any of the other buttons but keep my left hand on the keyboard instead.

Can you suggest some button layouts for this that feel natural to use?

That's pretty much how I operate with my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I have some stuff mapped to its base buttons, but when the left hand is on the keyboard anyway, it's easier/quicker to use that. The 3D Pro has a throttle, but I prefer using the A/S keys for that.
