Fortunately I have Orange 6-channel RX and Arduino UNO. So I decided to create own joystick that I can use with LiftOff simulator.



Hardware To create your own Remote Control Joystick you need:
Any receiver (currently up to eight channels is supported).Arduino UNO or Arduino MEGA with 8u2, 16u2  or 32u2 USB chip.9 wires.Note: some cheap Arduino built with other USB-Serial bridge. Make sure your uses Atmeg as USB interface.
