Actually, I find the keyboard suprisingly effective.

My left hand moves the craft along the three axis- forward, back, left,
right, up and down (using 'e', 'd', 's', 'f', 'a', and 'z' respectivly).
I've also bound 'w' and 'r' for banking.

My right hand controls standard rotation by the arrot keys. I can also
fire primary with the CTRL key, and secondary with Keypad 0.

When I first played this game, I used a Mouse+Keyboard combination, which
was very effective in a detahmatch LAN (compared to the other players which
were just using default configs.) Ever since I switched to a much better
setup where I can slide and tri-cord all over the place, I've stuck with
keyboard config.

Udderly false. I was very good with keyboard+mouse in Descent. A stick
player will beat a mouser due to easier tri-chording, but it's nothing to
worry about.

I kicked ass with keyboard. In fact, joystick is the worst way to play it.
