Detailed Description

Direct RC control for NPS with a standard joystick using SDL.

Simple DirectMedia Layer library is used for cross-platform support. Joystick button and axes are mapped to RC commands directly with defines.

You must have a joystick with either:

  • 4 axes and 3 buttons, or
  • 5 axes

First you should run sw/ground_segment/joystick/test_stick to determine the indices of the physical axes and buttons on your joystick (and to test that it actually works). Then you can assign each axis and button to a command in your airframe file.

The default axes are Roll = 0, Pitch = 1, Yaw = 2 and Throttle = 3. The default buttons are Manual = 0, Auto1 = 1, Auto2 = 2.

Example for 4 axes and 3 buttons using a joystick with 7 axes and 5 buttons:

*    <section name="SIMULATOR" prefix="NPS_">
*      ...
*      <define name="JS_AXIS_ROLL" value="2"/> <!-- Use joystick axis 2 for roll -->
*      <!-- Use joystick axis 1 for pitch (default) -->
*      <define name="JS_AXIS_YAW" value="3"/> <!-- Use joystick axis 3 for yaw -->
*      <define name="JS_AXIS_ROLL" value="6"/> <!-- Use joystick axis 6 for throttle -->
*      <define name="JS_BUTTON_MODE_MANUAL" value="3"/> <!-- Use joystick button 3 for manual -->
*      <!-- Use joystick button 1 for auto1 (default) -->
*      <!-- Use joystick button 2 for auto2 (default) -->
*    </section>
*  

One can define NPS_JS_AXIS_MODE to use an axis instead of buttons to change You will need a 5-axis joystick.

If you need to reverse the direction of any axis, simply use:

*      <define name="JS_AXIS_PITCH_REVERSE" value="1"/>
*      <!-- value="1" is required, setting to zero or omitting disables reversing -->
*  

At this point, no other functionality or channels are supported for R/C control.
