Default Controller Setup, Dont know which stick does what.

Hey Guys,
I got a controller (analog joystick) and FMS.

I dont know which stick is supposed to do what and I don't want to get used to flying with incorrect controller setup. This is how I have it setup now.


LEFT STICK
--------------

Right / Left = Rudder

Up / Down = Elevator

RIGHT STICK
--------------
Up / Down = Throttle

Right / Left = Aileron

Thanks

Default RE: Controller Setup, Dont know which stick does what.

What you have listed is what is called mode 1 pretty common elsewhere in the world but in the US it is in the minority. Mode 2 is the most common here and is best in regards its easier to get an insturctor or mentor nad makes it easier to buy/ sell equipment. Mode 2 has the throttle on the left and elev on the right. Most two stick radios have a rachet on the throttle side and the rest of the sticks are spring loaded to neutral.

I don't really understand what you are saying, "Mode 2 has the throttle on the left and elev on the right. Most two stick radios have a rachet on the throttle side and the rest of the sticks are spring loaded to neutral."

Could you clarify that or put it in lamens turms for me, sorry I'm a NuB


Left Stick
--------
Left/Right = ?
Up / Down = ?


Right Stick
--------
Left/Right = ?
Up / Down = ?

If ya could fill that out it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Left Stick
--------
Left/Right = ? Rudder
Up / Down = ? Throttle (this stick should not be spring loaded to center but instead have ratchet action


Right Stick
--------
Left/Right = ? aileron
Up / Down = ? Elevator

If ya could fill that out it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The above is mode 2 and most common in the US. By spring loaded to center I mean that if you remove your thumb from the stick it will return to the center. A throttle should stay if you remove your thumb.
