Reply To: [Request] Throttle Response Smoothing for Ship
Holding L2 after launch also provides a bit (quite a bit) of straight up lift. (Seems like a light touch is more lift than forward…?) This will usually get you free of any “entanglements” the you might otherwise have, such as getting hung on a transmission tower. This also allows you to point the nose down more as you move forward, much like accelerating in a helicopter.
It’s very useful for checking out structures from hover; you can circle the buildings very slowly or get lined up (on a ruin – supposedly following the line of a ruin leads to portals, but it’s hit or miss for me so far).
Best use (for me) is to use L2 until I get a little speed up and then switch to “square” (main throttle).
I hope someone finds this helpful!
