Default Sentinel controls?

This has been bugging me for some time, exactly how does one pilot sentinel? There just seem to be too many damn thins for one man to do!

The levers control the legs. There is a throttle for speed, two triggers on either handle for it's main weapon and any secondary weapon (HK for example.)

Radar and all the status screens are on the handles and dash. Fuel consumption controls and all other nessesary buttons and switches are on the dash. Things like lights etc.

Think of it as about as much as a Light Aircraft pilot needs to worry about.

Wow, JD is the fluffmeister. Where'd you get that information? I'm interested.

Actually it's right on the model. If not, it's simple enough to jump to the conclusion.

And barring that, we have mechwarrior ^.^

Actually it's just how mine pilot them :P.... pretty much based off the model anyway.


Failing that ALOT of sentinel pilots customise their gear anyway

Hmm...

Captain: "Pilot, what's that large red button do?"
Pilot: "Oh, sir nothing, don't-"
*press*
*Disco Ball comes off of side of sentinel and begins playing disco music*

That would be a nice addition to the armoury...

Anyway, JD's explanation is as good as any. The question is, how would a battlesuit pilot control so many things?

They've just got to remember to unhook the groin waste management system before they eject.
