The good thing about the throttle is that is has a bunch of buttons and things right at your fingertips. This makes controlling your machine feel like playing a musical instrument once you have them all set just-so.
Of course, when you fly using both hands (and feet!) instead of full-throttle bank&pull you get these incredible aerial ballet moments where you are wearing the plane and flying about like a lark on adderal.
Kick the thing onto its back, chop throttle in the dive. Then right at the bottom make those 2000 horses roar and pull right onto his tail. Do a sliding barrel roll to bleed some speed and end up with a gunsight full of nazi. Blyat-Blyat-Blyat go the guns. Fritz, your plane seem to be missing some bits }-D Oh look Franz wants a piece of me too! Slide to the left, rolling it, all the power on. His shots go way wide. Now pull up. Up up and away. Twist in the seat to keep an eye on the fokker. Combat yoga this. Hear the RPM lower as airspeed drops. Kick the rudders, chop the throttle, the nose comes down like the thousand horsepower anvil it is. Give that nazi the bird as you pass him going down while he’s hanging on his prop. Tiiiight turn at the bottom, all of the G. The wings groan. Be on the up while Franz is still struggling to get his slow-ass machine under control. Blyat-Blyat-Blyat. You get a bullet and you get a bullet!
So there is something to say for going full hotas nerdicality :)
I love this shit, does it show? :D
