Mouse movement control in space
When I press both mouse buttons to control my ships direction of travel while in space, if i put my ship in reverse it doesn't move away (reverse) from my target but turns around and moves backward towards the target.

Is there any way to change this so i actually back away from my target? without having to change from mouse control to keyboard control every time i use reverse.

I already know it has nothing to do with the camera setup.

Changes direction on me.
I've had to train myslelf to control it backwards in reverse, however the ship does change direction if my camera passes the 90 deg. mark. I hate this and I hope they change it. If I follow my target with my camera and they pass behind, me my ship changes direction, even while I'm holding down the a or d key. It would be nice if the a and d key overrides the mouse controls. Many players like to transition between mouse and keyboard and having to pause between mouse and keyboard controls to maintain control of the ship just seems wrong.

^ this

i dont see how they could have over looked something like this as alot of people do like to be able to transition from keyboard movment to mouse and back, i remember in my wow days i did that all the time but here? nope...

I am really suprised that more people do not find this annoying. but i guess its to minor of a thing to worry about at the moment with so many other things that need to be fixed first.
