Flight[edit]

Several controls are unavailable for console controllers, due to lack of buttons. These options are instead tied to wheel menus - hold down a button and then use the left stick to select an option. Release the button to select the option.

These can be changed from press and hold (default) to toggle (press to make the menu appear, and another button to select an option) in the menu.
