MOTION PLATFORM joystick controlled?
Has anybody considered switching the control motors via the joystick? Joystick forward = platform nose down - joystick back = platform nose up.
This may sound a bit odd, but the physical movement of the stick could be mechanically transferred to the motor switches. No extra software needed!
No good for the purists, but a sight better than nothing?

Re: MOTION PLATFORM joystick controlled?
Logically, you are correct, and I see no reason why this cant work,but you will suffer on yaw, you will need to find a way to yaw left to right by using rudder pedals, so you will need to mod your pedals to or build them to do this!
