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 from the top toolbar
  2. Open the Application Settings
  3. Make sure you're on the General tab
  4. Check the Virtual joystick box

    QGroundControl Application Settings > Enable Virtual joystick
