Typically for rotation around the directional axis, ie a substitute for rudder pedals. It's been a while since I've played any modern flightsims, but usually they have an option to auto-coordinate turns making explicit rudder inputs unnecessary (since many users don't have pedals or alternatives anyway). Naturally if you're actually practicing flying rather than gaming, so that you need to work on slips and crosswind landings and other aspects of uncoordinated flight where precise directional inputs are necessary, then the situation is different; but in that case you'd probably want to spring for pedals anyway. But more inputs (of any sort -- more buttons!) can almost always be put to some use, so depending on what game you're playing you could employ it to control viewport panning, turrets, or whatever.DPete27 wrote:What is the rotate fuction used for?TurtlePerson2 wrote:e important thing with a joystick is to make sure that it gives you rotate in addition to just X and Y tilt.
