I have always played JG with a mouse but wanted to see if a JS would help PvP using the joystick which would make rolling the ship a lot easier by twisting the stick.

However, this is not the case....i cant hit [censored] !

I bought a Thrustmaster hotas which seems a good stick. Plenty of buttons and a separate throttle.

I have the deadzone set to 0 and 100% sensetivity (any less and the throttle dosent reach max thrust ?)
But i really have trouble aiming. Maybe i have used the mouse too long to change?

But what about a playstation style controller ? Do you know if anyone uses these for this style of game and could they be set up ?

Im sure on one of the progress videos for elite i saw people using this style of controller ?

Any help or advice appreciated and if you are using a game pad style controller, what config and what sort are you using

No idea about the PS-controller, but to train targeting, i would get me a laser-nix and start hunting small flux. you should get into it within some time.

The Elite devguys mostly use the Xbox controller as it takes up almost no space on the desk and has a bunch of axes. My brother got an A10 Warthog and I may get one too. Very nice looking stick.

I am beginning to like the controller / Pad, I bought a Logitech F710, a bit of a revelation when you get the set up right. Using it successfully with ED apart form the times when the binds do not work, but I have a feeling that happens when the PC hasn't seen the pad until I press a pad key or move one of the sticks. Not great when it happens when you launch from station pad
