Most of the options below have independent dead zone settings. The dead zone is the region at the centre of the stick where no control input is provided to the aircraft. The player can choose to set the deadzone to Small, Medium or Large depending on the quality of the hardware being used. Generally speaking, for a joystick which centres well, and produces a signal which is steady and with little noise, a small deadzone is appropriate. However, if, when the joystick is released, it does not zero exactly or the signal continues to vary, this can be compensated for by selecting a larger deadzone. You will need to find the best arrangement by trial and error.
