    Question Programmable (mini) keyboard/keypad?

    Now that I upgraded my cockpit with the Helios system there is no room for a normal keyboard. Having the keyboard on my left side is not an optimal solution , therefore I am looking for a mini-programmable keyboard/keypad. There are quite a few on the market, but I would like to know if some of you is using one and what the pro/cons are before I buy one.

    Thank you for your suggestion(s)/advice.

    Jedi, is this one from The Star Wars period?
    ... it does look impressive

    I still have Belkins Nostromo 52 from the time I was wild and aggressive . I do not know it it can be still of any use in A-10 ...

    It should perfectly suit my X-wing yes
    On ED i also hear a lot of good about these X-keys keyboards, they look much less sci-fi then the G13

    There's always the CH multifunction Panel: http://www.simhq.com/_technology2/technology_105a.html

    I was once pretty close to buying it, but figured out it would be to big to place as an additional item on my desk.

    Could always use a 7 inch cheap tablet in combo with Helios and Idisplay ... then you can create anything you want. I myself was thinking of doing this at one time

    For the time being I "taped" Nostromo n52 in my cockpit. I believe it is supported by Win7 64 bit so there is a chance I can use it until I find better system.
