How would you map this flight yoke for Helms?

I found this and wonder which button should do what. There is a trim wheel on the left dash. The levers on the right dash click up and down.

I think the hat should control the screen (F, R, L and B) and the right thumb rocker zoom.

Here is how i set it up, still looking for a better way:
1. Stop Warp
2. Status Screen (Main View)
3. Tactical Screen (Main View)
4. Sector Screen (Main View)
(8-way hat is POV)
5 & 6. Toggle Reverse
7. Shields Up
8. Shields Down
9. ?
10. Request Dock
11. Previous Console Screen
12. Next Console Screen
Throttle - Impulse
Prop - Warp
Mixture - Zoom

Wow - that looks pretty slick! If the setup you've got now works, I'd stick with it. With all the different POV/Main Screen controls on the right and the movement controls set up logically, I think it works as well as any other. I'd suggest you play a lot of Artemis :) That way you can figure out what parts of the setup bug you and which parts work well. When you're playing, do you find yourself reaching for the reverse a lot? Maybe 9 should be a momentary Reverse change - press once to engage reverse, press again to disengage. I know there will be an on-screen button for switching from 3rd person to 1st person in game with 2.0, maybe keep a button open for that.
