    Can't Bind HOTAS Buttons

    I've looked for anyone with similar issues on the Elite and VKB forums to no avail, so I thought to seek help here first. I recently purchased a VBK Gladiator NXT Premium Stick and their GNX SEM button box. The stick/box combo works great in other games such as DCS and Simple Planes, but I when...

    Hold mode for Landing Gear binding

    I would love to see the option to have landing gear have a hold mode option as per cargo scoop. It would be nice to see this option on all of the buttons (is it possible to just allow this to be turned on for any binding?), or at least the functions in the ship tab panel. (external lights...

    PLEASE FD - give us the missing "toggel/hold" or distinct binding options

    I searched and found suggestions are around for five years. Elite is a game many of us playing with more or less complex HOTAS setups. Why there are still so many important bindings with toggle only? It's so sad we can't use reliable mappings on our HOTAS setups without hassle with voice attack...
