The on screen keyboard, motions captured from the tilt of the controller are bang on and super simple. Way faster and a lot less frustrating than manually typing used to be with the controller.

It started on its own, don't know how or why. Must have been in one of the last updates.

I was surprised by the accuracy. I can't see how they do it with out a camera to confirm the screen size, cursor location, etc.

Remember the Highway Men (Simon and Simon?)with the remote controls and the semi that turned into a helicopter?

Nope, I can tilt the controller and the light moves the same amount. You'd almost think it was a laser pointer.

Its never done that for me on War Thunder. I'll try writing/typing on War Thunder tonight.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I read it. I can see it being confusing as it does at first glance look as though the *Total* votes is next to the down arrow - which would make it look like more features got downvoted than upvoted
HaHa! That makes sense. More proof that two heads are better than one!

Been there since launch, when the keyboard is on-screen pressing R3 will activate/deactivate it. Yes it really is precise and much faster than using the joystick/d-pad.

Too funny.
I don't/haven't use it much, curious what else it can do.
