QGC - Using physical Joystick as main but still have RC to take over

Hello Community,

I’ve been trying to configure QGC V4.0.5 to use a Joystick as main in Position or Stabilized mode while keeping RC as backup for land command or kill switch.
But I didn’t managed yet to get it working :frowning:.
When I have the RC on then the throttle command from the Joystick is not working.
When I have the RC off then the throttle command from the Joystick is working but then I don’t have RC switches like kill switch.
Any clue how to have this setup working correctly?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

I don’t think you can mix the two sources.

And there is this parameter for your info: https://dev.px4.io/master/en/advanced/parameter_reference.html#COM_RC_IN_MODE

Thanks Julian. I’ll give it a try tomorrow with COM_RC_IN_MODE set to 1. I need to figure out also how to allocate “Kill Switch” to one of the physical Joystick button. Have a good one

You can’t use both at the same time.

Hello @DonLakeFlyer, how can I map one of Joystick’s button to kill switch?

Use the latest daily build

Got it. Works fine. Thanks!
