RC NB Heli-X Joystick Calibration for Linux

Problem statement: HUGE deadzone with Heli-X Sim on NG ACE-RC (possible on any other input device).

Solution is here, carefuly read all about calibration process, jstest-gtk-git works fine for me, as described.

Write your own udev rules (in my case, /dev/input/js* changes time to time):
[pastacode lang=”bash” manual=”%5Bilyxa%40wombat%20~%5D%24%20cat%20%2Fetc%2Fudev%2Frules.d%2F97-acerc.rules%20%0ASUBSYSTEM%3D%3D%22input%22%2C%20ATTRS%7BidVendor%7D%3D%3D%220c45%22%2C%20ATTRS%7BidProduct%7D%3D%3D%2270bd%22%2C%20ACTION%3D%3D%22add%22%2C%20RUN%2B%3D%22%2Fhome%2Filyxa%2Fbin%2Fjscal.sh%22%0A%5Bilyxa%40wombat%20~%5D%24%20%0A” message=”” highlight=”” provider=”manual”/]
Script (make your own, this is VERY important, do not forget #!/bin/sh ;), also this is not good idea to run udev script from user writeable file):
[pastacode lang=”bash” manual=”%5Bilyxa%40wombat%20~%5D%24%20cat%20bin%2Fjscal.sh%20%0A%23!%2Fbin%2Fsh%0A%5B%5B%20%24DEVNAME%20%3D%3D%20*%22js%22*%20%5D%5D%20%26%26%20jscal%20-s%206%2C1%2C0%2C128%2C128%2C6882750%2C6882750%2C1%2C0%2C128%2C128%2C6882750%2C6882750%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1%2C0%2C127%2C127%2C6972136%2C6795626%2C1%2C0%2C127%2C127%2C6972136%2C6795626%20%24DEVNAME%0A%5Bilyxa%40wombat%20~%5D%24%20%0A” message=”” highlight=”” provider=”manual”/]
That’s all, folks, now your heli is very aggressive and impressive as expected 😉
