Just bought my first RC helicopter - an Esky Big Lama. I want to practice first using the flight simulator that came with it - but I cannot get it to work.
I am running Windows XP. I installed the FMS simulator software OK. I connected the joystick to the PC using the cable that came with it (to a USB port.
I have been into control panel - game controllers and seen that it is there. I have calibrated it there and can see that the communication to the PC is working (the blue bars go up and down when I move the joysticks.
Then I run the FMS program, and choose the analog option for the controller, rather than the keyboard. I Choose joystick and when I calibrate the blue bars go up and down as they should when I move the joysticks.
But when I try to fly a helicopter, it just sits there on the ground with the engine running, not responding to anything I do on the joy stick controller...
What else must I do to get it working? Any ideas would be much appreciated...
