Calibrate the joysticks

  • Click HW JS CAL

This screen is split into 2 sections, joystick calibration on the left, joystick testing on the bottom right, instructions for the user to follow will be shown in the green box. Click Start Calibration to begin the process and follow the instructions in the green box and the sick movement arrows located around the sticks on the remote as highlighted in red below.

Note: The joystick testing area in the bottom right will not move or show any input while you are calibrating the sticks. This is normal, this area will only display input after the joysticks have been calibrated.

Once the joystick calibration step is complete the input test area in the red box will activate, follow the instructions above it to test the sticks input are functioning correctly by aligning the black and red circles in each step shown. This will test the joysticks are moving correctly in all axises.

At the end of this process if you are happy with the input behavior you can click ‘Pass’ and the calibration will be stored, if you're experiencing any issues click ‘Fail’ and start the calibration process again using a little more pressure in the corners.
