I hate keyboard and mouse in the game. I have a Logitech extreme 3d pro and it is OK. I have watched several dual HOTAS config videos and configs, but i'm looking at buildin this out specifically for SC. I have 9 oz of whiskey in my head at the moment, so forgive my non-search and probably duplicate post... my apologeess.. drunk bastard saNford......

You can use two HOTAS in dual stick configuration, but you might get more bang for your buck with the Thrustmaster throttle body on the off hand if you're using Thrustmaster. Buttons are a lot more accessible. For what it's worth, I use only 1 HOTAS and keyboard/mouse, or just keyboard/mouse. It's totally your preference.

A lot of options are discussed here. https://starcitizenprivateer.com/control-setup-suggestions/

EDIT: See this from Noobifier. Worth looking. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/community/citizen-spotli

Currently i use two T16000m with voice attack.
T16000 is imho a good stick, much more pricey sticks will probably give you a better experience. For Strafing the T16000m is good enough imho for very precise targeting you might want to switch to something with more and better buttons.
The bottom buttons are more or less useless in a combat situtation as you usally don't want to take your hands from the stick

I'm not sure about the two Hotas thing if thats what you want, it might be useful to at least add one throttle.

The idea behind HOTAS is Hand On Throttle And Stick. The T16000m is a good stick for dual stick dogfighting, but... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HOTAS... imho it lacks a few buttons on top of the stick.
for very precise targeting you might want to switch to something with more and better buttons.
In order to use some advanced controls, like targeting, power control, shield control, you are forced to use the buttons on the base and take the hands of the shick or get a more advanced stick.

Yeap, definitely get one throttle, with or without 2 sticks. With 2 sticks you might find it challenging to find a good spot for the throttle.

Sober now.

thanks for all the replies. yeah, i meant dual stick. I really like some of those recommendations. I dug around the junk drawer and found my old Steam Controller. Read some posts about that thing with SC and it brought back drama and agony from the first attempt to use it. (which is why it was tossed in a drawer and forgotten about)

I may just wait a bit. Perhaps give the old xbox controller a try.
