My argument was that whether or not they have a keyboard in front of them, most people use the mouse in alignment with their arm.
But in this situation the mouse is the buttons on MFDs on the displays.... the keyboard is the flight stick.
And even on most notebooks the mousepad is not to one side... it is front and centre so you can use either thumb or forefinger to operate it.
I am right-handed, so I use the mouse on the right side of the computer.
And I am left handed and I use the mouse on the right side of the computer so I can type or write with my left hand.
Are you telling me that you use your mouse directly in front of your chest? I find that hard to believe.
I generally use the keyboard with occasional movements and clicks of the mouse.
My keyboard slides away under the computer when not needed.
Who said anything about side sticks on the center console?
In a two seat side by side cockpit the side stick for the left seated crew member will be on the centre console.
If we are discussing large airliners or transport craft, and if they opt to use side sticks, then there will be a left-handed one for the left pilot at his left and vice versa for the right pilot.
Well that is just stupid... what if they both prefer to use their right hand to fly the plane?
That is what is implemented on Airbus planes, the SSJ-100 and now the MS-21. The center console remains the same with the traditional shared throttle set. How is this confusing?
It is not confusing it is just fucking stupid... why would an airliner need a joystick except for wankers.... pun intended.
I didn't say they were. You said the center stick arrangement allows for left handed pilots to fly the jet. How is it possible to use the left hand both for the stick and the throttle?
Airliners and transport planes have two crew with normally one crew many flying and the other operating the throttles.
Most of the time you set the throttle and don't need to change it for several minutes at a time if at all.
Why should things be different for the Russian industry?
Why should they be the same?
If Russian fighter pilots don't want side sticks why would any of their pilots need them?
The F-16 has a side stick because they are reclined backwards and probably couldn't reach a centre stick.
Not really a reason that applies to other aircraft.
But things are fast changing in that sector too, and they would nee to rethink things.
Yeah, because if you are not cool and hip you are nothing... NOT.
The best way to mitigate effects of a high acceleration maneuver would be, I presume, to have both arms resting on a support, such as the left at the throttle and the right at a right gyro-stick, and not with suspended arms holding a sensitive control between your legs.
It is not a question of how well supported your arms are, but whether you are physically able to apply the necessary force to the control stick to perform the required manouver... and having both hands makes that easier.
How many high performance race cars have joystick side stick control?
You talk about cranes and diggers but they are primarily involved in all sorts of things that have nothing to do with manouvering and moving in space, and everything to do with moving or manipulating things... which might be great for side stick controllers, but for driving or flying or even sailing a submarine the wheel or flight stick in front of you makes sense and is the dominant interface of choice.
Dude you have seen nothing, check out this masterpiece
What an asshole.
Feel free not to post any more of this dicks posts on here thanks.
we now have plenty of oil & liquified gas to sell, besides grain & civil/mil. aircraft.
Your civil and military aircraft have titanium components that are pretty critical to their design... how are you going to buy Titanium from Russia when they don't accept worthless US dollars?
