I recommend binding your joystick yourself. Rather than try to memorize someone elses key mapping, invent one that makes sense to yourself... easier to remember.

That's a good point, my next question I see reports of the controls being inverted and needing a file to fix it, any thought on that?

Shouldn't be an issue anymore, if they're inverted that can be changed in the UI, go to Options > Controls > Inversion Settings > Flight > Flight Movement, then fix any that are not to your liking:

While you can attach a number of control devices to your computer, only the first 3 (maybe 4) devices will be able to be "inverted" in star citizen. So if you are someone like me that has a mouse that is a "control device" ( it has a thumb control that you can use as an up/down or roll button), then a throttle and a stick, pedals, and then two button boxes (adds another 56 buttons to assign controls) and you can end up with 6 devices. Other people add things like a radio simulator and other flight sim products and you can easily assign so many boxes that it can take an hour or two on patch day to go though and re-assign every single button. This isn't just SC patch day either, this can also happen when windows patches. That's because when you reboot, it can (and often does) reassign every device a number that does not match how it was in your last reboot. The best way to fix this is to get a USB hub that has individual switches that enable/disable the usb port next to it. Put all your controls there. Put your joystick on 1, throttle on usb port 2, etc. When you are about to reboot turn them all off. Reboot and when windows is back up and logged back in, turn them on one at a time slowly. Let windows recognize your device and assign a number. This way you control the number (as best you can) and are less likely to need to reassign all your hotkeys. There may be other ways too.
Good luck.

If you are looking for ideas as to how to arrange the buttons, BuzZz_Killer's guides are well thought out and usually explained.
The essential idea is that the stuff you NEED to have under stress, such as combat, should be on switches where you don't have to break your grip or reposition your hands.

I run a set of virpils now, but have gone through many iterations of sticks and bindings, and that is still open to change as the game develops.

This x 10

It's a pain in the arse but once it's done, you know what the hell is goin on in your hands forever.
I didn't find it that difficult, once I figured out the interface and how to swap the throttle axis.

Depending on your device(s), Joystick Diagram, https://www.joystick-diagrams.com/, can also be helpful with keeping track of your key binds.
Also, if you do your own key binds, I recommend exporting them as sometimes there are patches that mess them up.
Yes. Also you can import them into the PTU build or "release" build after deleting your user folder.

Oh this is great thank you
There's also a discord for it, the developer (seems to be one person) has always seemed very active and response on there, so if you run into problems they (or someone else on there) might be able to provide assistance (or at least a technical explanation to the issue.) Sometimes people even post custom diagrams for devices the developer hasn't implemented into the tool yet.
