Setting up aeroflyFS controller
Here are some simple instructions on how to setup your aeroflyFS joystick or controller. I will show an example of how to setup one channel. The other channels are setup the same way. Let's try to setup the elevator trim channel. in this example I am using a Logitech 3D Extreme Pro joystick, which is highly recommended.
First plug in your joystick into a usb port. Then startup your aeroflyFS. In the menu bar on top, go to "settings", then "controller setup". You can see the Elevator Trim channel. Then click on the "axis/button" column on the "down" side of the Elevator Trim. The setup menu will prompt you to "assign button".
