You can use it, but you will need to use the lever/paddle thing at the base to control one of your inputs (ascend/descend), so it is a little bit awkward actually.

@jwalser @Volley
This product you introduced
I think you can do all the gestures

8-way hat switch
Put your thumb to work
Quickly and easily switch from points of view to weapons and more—the 8-way hat switch is designed to accurately capture specialized input specific to flight sims.

ascend / descend : It can be done by this section

The hat identifies as a ‘button’, you need an ‘axis’ for ascend/descend.

Hi @Volley, we tested this same joystick in order to test joystick input as an option to the gamepad.
It works ok, but as @jwalser points out, you have to use the lever as decent/ascend control, and since there is no “mid-point,” it’s a bit difficult to stabilize depth, which is one of the beauties of the Ardusub software.

So I would NOT recommend this particular joystick.
