Keyboard, game pad, joy stick -and the winner is?


For those who have extensively used their ROV and have used more than one of the above Human Machine Interfaces, -is there a winner in function and ease of use?

I would have thought the joy stick would have been the winner after the keyboard, but it looks like I am behind times, -likely due to the market today flooded with game pads and the joy stick less common, or does a game pad provide the user with a better experience?

The ROV manual describes in STEP 17 USB gamepad control of your ROV but does not mention joy stick. Will a "WINDOWS compatible USB joy stick work the same as a WINDOWS compatible gamepad?


I like the gamepad or computer keyboard. Joystick is too big for me to bring along on trips usually.
