System HOTAS enables the player the control over every aspect of the flight without getting the hands of the controllers. Through the analogs on the throttle you can control the additional three axes. It is probably the most common system within the veterans of this genre but it has its flaws. The first would be the price - the complete HOTAS cost more than the average player would be willing to spend on a controller which can be used for the very limited amount of games. The second disadvantage is the fact that the most of such controllers don't have the analogs on the throttle. Buttons put on them are no better than the keyboard. In this setting the joysticks operates the three basic axes and the throttle controls the engine power and strafing.
