My first commentary in quite a while but it HAD to be done. There's just so much misinformation about the ECM Jammer and how great it can be on the internet. Even some of the highest rated articles and Youtube videos are littered with bad or missing info.

That said, it's entirely possible I may be wrong about something so please comment with any issues or questions.

Thanks to Deceivos, Nacho Power and the OT/Red pilots I frequent the skies with for helping gather information.

-Keyboard/Mouse flying with Logitech G5 Laser (sensitivity no longer maxed since last BF3 patch, DICE raised maximum).
-Recorded using Dxtory 2.0 software, using the Lagarith Lossless Codec to .AVI
-Editing: Sony Vegas Pro 10.0
-System: i7-2600k @ 4.3GhZ - Nvidia GTX 580
-Music: Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins

Many have asked so here are two screenshots showing my button remappings and a detailed explanation as to why I did them (some are mouse rebinds, please read below).

-Afterburner as "." is really a remapped mouse button under my scroll wheel so I can hold it while I steer. I use sprint the same way so it's second nature.

-Free-look is remapped to LSHIFT because I can hold it down effortlessly, without moving my WASD fingers while doing multiple other things.

-Toggle Weapons is remapped to RMB because it's another way I can leave my WASD fingers in place and and easily get back into cockpit view without pressing "C" if I'm in the heat of a dogfight or wild turn.

-Countermeasures are remapped to space bar so, you guessed it, I can mash my thumb without moving off WASD.

-From a suggestion here I've since remapped a spare mouse button to "Pitch Up" so that I can hold it if I run out of desk space on a long turn with the mouse (rare now that I use the entire desk and no pad). Not an elegant solution but it works well.
