AeroFly FS 2 has the non-keyboard emulation type joystick control. They are a German company and are not subject to being influenced by the Russian military or FSB. I do not want to be a part of a botnet. I recently bought Aerofly FS 2 through Steam. Bear in mind that this type of flying, especially for helicopters is easier without springs in your joystick, which is used to bring it back to center automatically. I have removed mine. In actual joysticks, dampers are used--either friction or hydraulic--to keep the joystick where you leave it, instead of taking it back to center. This is totally different from what you are used to. In all fairness, emulating the keyboard with the joystick is cost effective, given what kind of joysticks are available. I suspect that VR simulators do not emulate keyboard controls.
