Virtual Joystick

QGroundControl allows you to control a vehicle with on-screen virtual thumbsticks. These are displayed as shown below in the flight view.

QGroundControl Preferences > Enable Virtual Joystick

Thumbstick control is not as responsive as using an RC Transmitter (because the information is sent over MAVLink). Another alternative is to use a USB Joystick/Gamepad.

Enable the thumbsticks

To enable the virtual joysticks:

  1. Select the Q icon (Application Settings) from the top toolbar and then General from the sidebar.
  2. Select the Virtual joystick checkbox

    QGroundControl Preferences > Enable Virtual Joystick
