Indeed. Actually, the controller only has 5 axes. Two analog sticks (4 axes)
and a throttle that is linked to the trigger buttons. Pressing the left
trigger yields a negative axis value and the right trigger produces
positive values. (I assume it's for controlling the acceleration, etc.)
This axis also has a threshold in the positive and negative range each
triggering a button press.

Well, I'm always happy when I can hack some code, so count me in. :)
Usually, the only problem for me is to get a decent setup to start

But I guess, I'll have to learn a bit more about HID descriptors before
I can start hacking.

Will take a look at it - thanks!
