I have an Xbox One controller but I don’t really use it all. Will that work?

Yep it will work. It's what I use, you may want to turn down the sensitivity though.

Is that Laura?

I'm curious what Marco looks like right now, might leave out of L83(Thibodaux) or HUM(Houma).

Decided to head out from Key West to Cuba. Late night flight on a mouse and keyboard.

Just a WEEEEE bit of crosswind. Didn't survive the landing.

I'm getting better at landing on keyboard, but it's not easy.

I have a controller and flight sim works pretty well on it

How do I steer properly? Using my keyboard, if I turn, the damn plane spins. I compensate with the other direction, but it then spins the other way. Trying to level out the plane without it jolting in another direction is not easy.

re: Microsoft Flight Sim Release Date Aug. 18
I’m using the ace combat stick, and the rudder pedals that I had for the PS4. This game hasn’t really grabbed me. It doesn’t really bring me back to flight school like I anticipated ....and dealing with the mundane of mixing fuel, disengaging the parking, or keeping a screen open with all the shortcuts is a little much. Using a yoke and a three screen setup is probably a lot better. So far, the most fun I’ve had is Ali snackbarring friends homes and sending them screenshots. I wish there was crash sequences instead of a black screen telling me I overstressed my aircraft.

You steer by not using your keyboard to steer Plug your xbox controller in and use that.

I'll use it in the future, but I found flying the Airbus A320 resulted in not as many forced barrel rolls than the Cessna.

I've been using a XB1 controller and it works surprisingly well in tandem with a keyboard.

EDIT: Flying out of Hobby towards Cancun in order to get a good look at Laura.

I've noticed several instances where the landscape is more reflective of 2012 satellite images or somewhere around there rather than current satellite images

I tried piloting a 747 out of BTR. Did not go well.

For anyone that has an iPhone with a TrueDepth camera (iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max) - you can download the Head Tracker app to be able to look around in the game.

The app is free to download but you need to upgrade to the paid version ($1.99) to use it in game.

It really is.

It takes some getting used to, but it makes the game so much more enjoyable.

I've been having just as good a time as flying the drone around and sight seeing. Much easier than checking things out in the plane.

How do you use a drone? I just want to sight see and it's annoying to take in sights at ground level with an airplane.

I've been making my way through the bush trips. The Breckenridge to Mariposa-Yosemite trip is a little difficult because you don't have GPS. It's nice to have a challenge and the trips take you through some awesome places.
