It might actually be an issue with the joystick I am using, so my question might not make much sense. Yes I am using a real joystick, an XBOX 360. In the video that I included in my first post, when the joystick panel pops up, the throttle value seems to be at 50% (the blue bar in the middle), without the user controlling anything on the joystick (or so it seems). When I do the same, the throttle value is at 0% and I need to apply throttle from my joystick to get it at %50. You see what I mean? It might be only because I am not using the correct joystick for this purpose.
