Joy2TX is a simple application that demonstrates how to communicate with a PC to TX interface, such as PCBUDDY or SC-8000RF and control an RC device (UAV, airplane, robot, etc.) using PC with a Joystick. The Joystick inputs are converted and send through serial port to the interface. The basic application allows to control 3 channels using X/Y/Z joystick axes, it is however very easy to enable the rest unused channels and use some additional input devices such as rudder pedals or a mouse.
This is full 32-bit application designed to run on Windows NT/2K/XP/NET and Linux. It runs with Realtime priority to allow smooth servo operation while running another (for example video decoder) programs simultaneously. It consumes very little CPU so it won't hang or slow down the system. Available is full source code in C. Binary executable versions have been removed for download as they make very little sense if not customized in the source code.
