Remarks

FlightStick is targeted at simple, arcade-style flight games. It provides several basic inputs, which are derived from the lowest common denominator of inputs available across the majority of popular flight stick devices. These inputs include:

  • Two buttons for firing primary and secondary weapons.
  • A hat switch for camera view and/or target selection.
  • Axis data for pitch, roll, yaw, and throttle position.

Instances of the FlightStick class cannot be created directly; instead, instances of the class are retrieved through the FlightStick.FlightSticks property listing all connected flight sticks or through the FlightStick.FlightStickAdded event.

See Flight stick for more information about how to use the FlightStick class.

Supported Devices

FlightStick supports any Xbox One-certified or Xbox 360-compatible flight stick.
