Joystick Gimbal Control

I'm having some trouble- perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

I'm trying to control a camera gimbal I made with RC channels 6 and 7 out, using a USB joystick.  I'm having some trouble with the joystick configuration. I got one axis to work by mapping the joystick X axis to channel 6, then changing RC_6_Function to 1.  That servo moves fine.  After that, the software won't let me map any more joystick axes, on any channel.

  • Hello everyone ... Has anyone made any headway on this  - using the game pad to control aux outputs? I seem to have the same issue ... calibration works fine until connection to the board as mentioned above... then nothing happens and the inputs from the game pad seem to not be recognised.

  • I'm interested in doing this myself but I'm aways off on even attempting.  I'll follow this thread, good luck guys.

  • It seems that the joystick mapping to all flight controls works very well, however things start to get strange when the joystick is mapped to the auxiliary inputs.  The mapping appears to work until a connection with the board is established, and then it seems as if no values are being read from the joystick.

  • Developer

    make sure you calibrate the joystick in windows first.

  • I'm kinda curious about this too.  I'd like to use the joystick hat switch to control a camera gimbal.
