If you can use a workaround such as switch controller layouts to make this work that would be great.
Its not possible ,i've already tryed that ,but Yaw and Roll will be always separated on left and right sticks :( so I'm not abble to controll them two with the mouse.
Is it hard to map left stick x-axis to mouse at the same time you map right yx-axis to it ?

Yes, any feature added is a significant amount of work and needs to be considered against other requested features.

Yaw left and right on PC are done with the A and D keys on keyboard by default, not the mouse. If you are using defaults controls on your Xbox and are using the WASD keys for movement, then the controls are actually very similar to PC. The only difference is on PC the pitch movement is more noticeable, but not by a lot.
Yes the default controls , but most of the best pilots uses Yaw , Roll and Pitch all mapped to the mouse in a custom configuration , this way you have more controll of your aim , you can try it on pc , you gonna see that your aim acts like an infatry lol its so op , here is a video of it (its in portuguese but u can see he mapping the mouse and mooving it)

I played an insane amount of hours of BF4 on PC and this is the first time I've heard of this. I wouldn't say it's OP nor that these are the settings all the top pilots used. I can see how it would help if you're not used to a keyboard though. That being said, the OP should see if the in-game settings would allow to rebind buttons for the helicopter and make a separate config page to see if he can come up with something he likes.

Not all the best pilots use this I know ,but a lot of them (especially the best 1v1 ones) uses ,like I said the advantadge of this config its that your aim stay all in your mouse so you have full aim controll ,the aim doesn't jumps like it does when using Yaw on keyboard ,and like I said to its not possible to do changing configs in game (already tryied all the configs), the only way to do that its mapping left stick x-axis to the mouse at the same time you map right stick yx-axis .

Sorry, there is still no plans for this. Have you considered using XIM Link?

How do I use it ? Does it needs to be connected to PC every time ?

Yes it does require you to be connected to a PC, but, you can do about anything as far as your setup.
