    I tried it too and run into a problem with sticks which seems to be well known since months accoring to the Octopus forum. The left stick worked as expected, the virtual stick on screen follows my physical stick. But the right stick behaves different and is unusable. If I will move the phsyical stick out of the center, the virtual stick will begin to move in the commanded direction but will continue moving until it has reached its limit. The stick extend just controls the virtual stick movement speed, not its position. And when going back to the center the virtual stick will not follow as long as the physical stick has not reached the center. Then the virtual stick will jump to the center, too. This way it's totally unusable for drone control!

    Thank you! I tried the gamepad today. The sticks work fine, unfortunately all buttons seem to be stuck and do not respond, neither on the gamepad nor the octopus screen. During remapping they work fine. Any thoughts?
