    This was my very first app with B4A, there are for sure better ways to code (the rotary knob for instance)... but simple to understand and works !

    Hi Freedom2000

    I bought a adaptator usb to connect my joysticks.

    I have tested 3 different joysticks and none is detected:

    - saiteck X52
    - saitek AV8R
    - KG13 (based on Leo Bognar Joystick Controller BU0836A)


    :-( too bad !

    Hi John,

    Is your Android supporting USB On the Go ?

    When connected and detected by android the joystick is more or less seen as a "random keyboard".

    Well , not sure to understand the question.

    what I can say is that your application says " joystick not supported"

    Well I mean : does your android recognize the USB Host adapter ?

    In other words, is the joystick recognized by Android system even when my App is closed ?

    just wondering... what is the max distance you can have?

    I thought blutooth only covered 10m or something and was just an extended solution to the infrared method (and worked out of focus unlike IR) ?

    It's not BT to the airplane. The joystick is connected to the phone, the phone is connected to the radio, the radio controls the aircraft.

    yes you are right !

    The max distance is thus only limited by to transmission power of the RC radio.
    With mine, in open air conditions, I have successfully reached 2 km :)
