What a stick needs is an option to turn on auto-rudder when flying with a stick.  You have that with a mouse/keyboard, but you don't have it with a stick.  that's the major difference i have found.  
Heard on the forum.  "1.9 was a hardcore air combat sim.  And it had a lead indicator"  HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you mean auto rudder as in slip compensation?

It's turned on by default, and I recommend turning it off completely.

I don’t think so.  Auto rudder handles the rudder for you for a mouse.  I would live to turn on the twist rudder on ,y saitek stick (hurts my carpal tunnel) and run the stick with the auto rudder taking care of the rudder for me like it does when I use the mouse.

Based on that video, I am the opposite.  I have tried many many times to use a mouse/kb and my accuracy dives into the dirt.  Now with a JS, I have no problems tracking my target, using Snap to Target and HAT switch to look around and I have no problems aiming with a JS.

 

It still all comes down to user preference.  Try both control schemes out and see what works for you the best.

I use both m/k and joystick on different occasions. I find myself using joystick more these days.

I picked up a F.L.Y. 9 I don't recommend it. Some inputs are not recognized like the trigger.
