Flying helicopters

I use a Cyborg Evo Force joystick which is no problem with fixed wing aircraft but I experience considerable difficulty in trying to control a helicopter. Am I expecting too much from a single control that combines the Collective/Cyclic/Antitorque all on the one joystick?

I wonder if other folk have found it necessary to get pedals to at least shift the antitorque from the joystick. The alternative would of course be "f" keys for left and right. I wonder what is the general opinion.

You might wanna lower realism settings to 50%. That's what I do cause otherwise I can't control the helicopter. It starts spinning as soon as I lift off the ground. 🙂
