Joystick Arming + Flight Mode Changing

Hello Everyone,

i have just tried to use the joystick the first time, but have a few issues:

Main one: Joystick arming: How do i arm using the joystick or only APM ?

When i enable the joystick, the radio remote does not work anymore - and arming in the same way keeping the lever pulled to either side for 10 seconds does not arm. - Is there something i am missing ?

Second one: Flight modes: When i try to allocate buttons for flight modes (Auto), it ends up always putting back a certain number immediately, even before i press a button (either e.g. 27 or 29).

Any idea what may be wrong here ?

  • Make sure your rudder and aileron are not backward in the receiver/APM. To check, try arming and disarming with the other transmitter stick!

    ensure your joystick is calibrated in windows control panel

    the joystick always overrides rc, otherwise it wouldnt know what to listern to.
