    I don't use R1/L1 for barrel rolls, I use the d-pad, as I do for steering.
    I won't try it because I don't like analog, but your idea should work !

    I usually use L1/R1 for airbrakes but Im reading here peole are using thos e buttons to do barrell rolls which is a really nice idea besides the fact you need a lot of practice when using new layouts. Sooo Ill give it a try.

    It's possible to map barrel rolls to L1/R1 without remapping the steering? o_O

    Yes it is, it takes a bit of getting used to but it's definitely got legs, left stick for steering L1 R1 for barrel rolls. Tis the Link method. Called it 😀. Remap left dpad and right dpad to L1 R1.

    I gotta lol a little bit at the irony here because it says "new pilot" beneath your name. That part certainly isn't true.

    I did have a question about this method though. How does this work with sideshifts? There are certain rolls you SS into. How do those work? Seems like double trigger sideshifts would be awful hard to pull off.

    I tried L2/R2 but I can't do sideshifts with triggers.
    So I use L1/R1 with 50% sensibility (if it changes something with L1/R1... don't know actually).
    Square is thrust, Cross to fire and triangle to absorb.

    Wait, so how do you side shift then? Wouldn't mapping them to r1 l1 override the top trigger barrel rolls?

    I never really managed with the whole side shift barrel roll, can never seem to get enough air, always used left stick for turning / barrel rolls and L2 R2 airbrakes. Tried the L1 R1 remapping last night and can definitely see a benefit, using the left stick for steering I would have trouble pitching up and barrel rolling, as soon as I started to roll the nose would drop. Been finding rolling using DS4 a lot more inconsistent than with DS3, could be because of the shorter sticks or something. As for double trigger side shifts I have fingers on all the triggers all the time anyway, biggest issue I have with this method at the moment is it missing the roll but taking the energy if you do it to quickly, something Linkinito mentioned in the bugs and glitches thread.

    As for the new pilot tag, yeah might have to change that 😀

    Hi man,

    Hum, I don't get it
    With airbrakes on L2/R2 I often fail sideshifting because I have trouble to double tap on analog triggers. It's always been like this.
    With airbrakes on L1/R1, I can double tap easily .

    I don't see the pb with BRs, it's still left/right/left. And I use d-pad... I'm not able to BR with analog stick

    Oh my apologies. I thought you were talking about maping left and right to the r1 l1 buttons I just misread that.
