An ordinary USB cable should work fine if you want to test it out.
You may need to change the 'USB Mode' system setting to 'Joyst' if it is set to 'SDCard'. You can also set it to 'Ask' if you want to be prompted each time you plug it in.
The 'official' Windows 10 minimum HDD space is 20gb for the 64bit version - in practice this is too small. 32GB is workable but you need to manage it carefully.
I have BootCamp installed on an 80GB partition. With RF8, RF9.5 and ~50 models downloaded from the swap pages there is still ~25GB...
If it does not work in the Windows joystick control panel then it is not a compatibility issue with RF 9.5. Other people have reported success with the NX6 in 9.5. Changing to RF 8 or 9 will make no difference - it will still fail.
It sounds like you have tried both the WS1000 and WS2000...
You say the left stick does not work in Windows settings - I assume you mean the joystick control panel.
If it does not work in the Windows joystick control panel then it is not a problem with RealFlight.
Is it both directions (left/right and up/down)?
If it's only the throttle (up/down) do you...
On my FrSky radio there is a setting to select the USB port mode - either Joystick or SD Card access.
Perhaps there is a setting on the NX6 to enable Joystick mode.
(The NX6 manual talks about accessing the internal memory via USB but no mention of Joystick. The product advertising says it is...
RealFlight 8 and 9.5 both run fine in bootcamp on an iMac Pro (Vega 56 GPU).
I believe RF uses DirectX 9 for graphics which is pretty old and does not have very demanding GPU requirements. AFAIK the Apple bootcamp drivers have no issues with DirectX 9.
RealFlight also runs quite well in a...
I suspect it's the difference between a true gimbal controller and a game controller.
A gimbal stick moves in a square - full up and right is +100% in both directions.
Game controllers only have circular motion of the stick - if you are at full up then moving the stick right decreases the up...
In the aircraft editor, under the electronics tab, you can change the 'Spektrum Flight Controller' settings.
You can change the fence to a large radius setting, change the small and large radius distances or turn off GPS altogether.
