I’m trying to control a APM copter using a PS3 joystick.
I have succesfully connected the joystick to APM Planner using File->Joystick tab. And I have configured the stick properly, assiging its channels and inverting some of them.
Once set properly the SYSGCS parameter an being able to override RCout, I have connected to the GCS APM Copter, I have tried to calibrate the Joystick, using RC Calibration menu.
There I have seeing that:
Throttle only has 1080-1500 values ( a bit few)
Yaw PWM range is going only one side: center value is 1500 and when I move the stick to the left the value changes until ~1138. But when i move the stick to the right PWM value does not change (fix to 1500).
Finally I cannot see Roll and Pitch changing in this menu, even though I can see X and Y axis values changing in the Joystick Menu (under File->Joystick)
I’m using v2.0.15 because 2.0.18 is crashing when I try to connect the Joystick.
Any one has achieved to control the drone with a PS3 under APM Planner

Thanks in advance
