War Thunder With Controller

The 3dRudder provides the most immersive, engaging, and natural way to fly a plane in War Thunder. Because of the innovative 4 axis of movement,the experience is not only mechanically deep, but also incredibly comfortable for any player out there. The signature aerial maneuvers that have made War Thunder such a beloved game by fans, are now even more breathtaking when the 3dRudder comes into play.

When playing War Thunder with the 3dRudder, the handling of each plane is totally smooth and feels weightless, in total contrast to using traditional devices.
There are multiple ways to experience War Thunder with 3dRudder.
For example, in Sim Mode, it is possible to use the 3dRudder to control the camera.
That allows players to free their left hand and allocate it to the keyboard, for commands pertaining to elements such as the engine, map, and air brake.
At the same time, because of the customizable nature of the 3dRudder, every single setup is possible for infinite ways to play.

When I started on War Thunder PS4, I did not like the controls at all. It was confusing and made it very difficult to pilot the aircraft. If you have this problem, then this should help you out.

Note: The only controls I use are Realistic Controls. Even in Arcade Battles. People who use Mouse Aim and Simplified Controls aren't actually flying the aircraft because of the Virtual Instructor. Having the VI turned on prevents stalls. This may help some people, but I personally feel that it limits what I can do with my aircraft. Now, enter the controls menu, select Realistic Controls at the top of the screen, and let's get to it.
