Virtual sticks are created to simulate a radio controller that controls the channels of the aircraft directly from the computer.

In the stick display, there are four icons and their function are:

  1. Return the stick to the centre
  2. Activate/Deactivate the virtual stick
  3. Move the stick in the X direction in a sinusoidal way
  4. Move the stick in the Y direction in a sinusoidal way

If the Stick is not active it will make no effect on the system. Activate it by clicking on the second icon (some waves will appear near the icon and the stick will be actived). 
In order to deactivate it, only click on the antenna icon one more time.
