While I am very interested in Star Citizen, I want to keep my configuration flexible for other games; FPS in SC and others, versatile vehicle controls for Arma and maybe DCS in the future, etc. My current experiment/build/setup is below.
Wheel Stand Pro Warthog Deluxe V2
- Right pole/pedestal: Logitech G903 mouse, X-keys XK-24 keypad, oversized rigid mousepad
- Center pole/pedestal (currently): VKB Gladiator Mk II (KG12), modified QuickShot Master Pilot MFD console
- Left pole/pedestal: Logitech G13 gamepad, 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator (notebook model)
- Floor plate: MFG Crosswind pedals
I'm currently waiting on a Gunfighter Pro ‘Modern Combat Edition’ set (preorder Dec 2017) to replace the Gladiator, and I expect to get either the "modern" or "space" throttle when it becomes available. I hope to fabricate a new left hand split level pedestal that will allow for the VKB throttle and the G13/3DC to be equally accessible, but I have to wait to see specs on the throttle (I might not need the G13, but the 3DC is small and great for uncoupled). I will also probably grab the VKB twist adapter when it comes out (I'm glad they're going with an "please everybody" adapter), but I don't plan to have an entire second stick just for SC.
As far as inputs/axis etc, I tend to try for a configuration that remains fairly standard across games so I'll usually stick with pitch and roll on the right hand, yaw on the pedals, a throttle/translationals on the left side, and my 3dof EDTracker for "looking around".
The twist adapter will be "just because" gravy.
