    Hello Brunner Team,
    I would like to ask a couple of questions about your CAN I/O Device and using it as input device for the pitch and roll axis.
    Our setup has a two side sticks using regular potentiometers as an analog position measurement. These and a couple of buttons are connected to your CANopen IO device.
    I am able to use one joystick for pitch/roll axis by setting the appropriate in the CLS2Sim Analog Axis setting. The Cyclic needs to be physically disconnected to bring this to work.
    My first problem arises with the calibration of the analog axis. Within CLS2Sim I am only able to set the maximum and minimum values. My side stick happens not to be centered in regards to the maximum values to either side though. Flying with this setting results in a continuous roll/pitch input while the side has no input / is left untouched.
    Are there any possibilities to either:
    1. Implement a calibration of the center of an analog axis used as a control axis?
    2. Send the analog axis to the vJoy Controller so the axis are seen as a Joystick and can be calibrated using the sim?
    3. Any other solution?
    Furthermore I have found out the following:
    If I am connected to my Sim with CLS2Sim, the Controls of the analog axis work, but the buttons do not (they are configured as USB). Disconnected from the Sim it is the other way around: Buttons work but controls do not.
    It would be great to get some help or tips/tricks
    Thanks in advance
    Further Notice:
    Using CANopen Commander I have tested using the analog offset. Although this implements a near center position of a stick not touched, the solution is not very good. Furthermore I restrict my possible (electrical) movement to one side, while on the other I stretch it beyond the mechanical movement. Which in the end results in unbalanced control movements.

    Setup Information:
    CLS2Sim v4.2.0 / X-Plane 11.05 / 2x CLSE Rudder v336, CLSP Cyclic v334, Can IO Device: Hardware v0x1, Firmware v0.6.1, DS 401 I/O Device Plugin 1.0.3, Can Open Commander v1.4.10
