Grettings space enthusiasts! I have been away from Orbiter for a long while, but am dipping my toes back in it again. I am a historic space fan with Apollo being my favorite. My current goal is to build a realistic Apollo THC and RHC for use with NASSP in Orbiter. I am an RL pilot, so all things aerospace are a life-long passion, and I'm old enough to remember Apollo. So yeah. Old dude. :D We'll see ya'll 'round!

Welcome back!
I'd love to see how your THC and RHC will turn out.

Hi, NASSP got a new joystick module with configurable input assignments. It may helps in your RHC/THC project: if these gadgets are built to be compatible with DirectInput, you don't need to do additional coding in NASSP, just enable VESIM module and edit the appropriate game controller config files.

Thanks! That is good news! I am hoping to simply transfer the gimbals from existing joystick controllers, like the Thrustmaster T1600, to the RHC/THC controllers. The push/pull on the THC is going to be the biggest challenge, but I have an iidea for it that I think will work.
