I have hooked up an old joystick that was laying around and got it working with my computer (under W7). The joystick works fine and I get changes to the rcoverridech1 and the other channels that all correspond with the correct movement, but I can't figure out why I can't get any movement from the UAS. The UAS flies fine with radio control.
To add to the confusion, the buttons on the joystick for changing modes work fine. I can assign modes to buttons and switch when I arm through mission planner or the transmitter. So what's the deal? Do I need to change some parameter to use the joystick?
