I use it for trim. You can use it for airbrakes, but really, you only need those ~once every flight. Well, maybe when starting or when trying to avoid getting sucked in to a cloud, but for those purposes, buttons works fine.

Well it works! Did some flying yesterday, cant get a real good grip with only a few fingers on the stick (like in RL) Any tips on where to hold the stick? Or maybe any tweaks i need to make on the joystick settings?

How you hold it, is entirely up to you. But maybe you want to decrease the "stick force simulation" slider in the input settings, so it doesnt require as much, well, force ;). Also make sure your trim works. I put the trim on my throttle slider, so it makes the stick move forward/backward, and I probably use that more than the stick itself.

I use the slider as trim! Thx for the tip about the "force" will try that!

One more tip; there is a sensor in the grip, that detects if you are holding the stick or not; Its at the front of the stick, i think its an optical detection. If you let go, it disables force feedback. I used to deliberately 'fool' the sensor so I could just let go of the stick, and it would maintain its position, or I could steer with two fingers holding the base. Im using past tense, because that sensor no longer works on my stick ;).
