With a new Pilot profile the throttle and rudder controls are not defined by default. To use all the functions on your joystick, you must do the following:

Throttle

Go to Options > Control Config > Ship

Make a doubleclick on ABSOLUTE THROTTLE AXIS or select it and click BIND in the upper right corner.

Then move your throttle control on your joystick a litle bit. Now it should be binded to JOYSTICK Z AXIS.

Enable Joystick

So WCS accept the joystick as input device, the mouse control must be deactivated:

Go to Options

Set MOUSE control to OFF

I have the Logitech Extreme 3D joystick, Although some functions do work fine with the joystick I have trouble getting the game to recognize new mapping. For example to bank left...when I attempt to modify the game will not recognize the change I try.

Please advise.

Do you try to map Bank Left to an axis on your joystick? This doesn't work, because Bank Left is a digitally control, not an analogue control.

Yes I have tried to map the function, for some reason the mapping would not take effect.
