If you mean something like the radio_control_datalink subsystem:
then it's already done.
The program that set the correct datalink frame is for now in sw/logalizer/ctrlstick.c We need to update the input2ivy program or change the message as mode and throttle is send in the same byte.

I am trying to control the aircraft with a Joystick through the modem.
The modem i use (9Xtend) can communicate reliably at 115200 even at 30km out so i guess
that control through it may be possible.
What i have done so far is to read the Joystick, load a message with the joystick values, send them to the aircraft and finally decode them in the autopilot code and load the "radio_control.values" array thus imitating the normal rc link.
I have also set up dummy control variables like the "RC_OK" flag etc.
What i am thinking is to drive this array which normally contains the decoded PPM frame with the values received from the the joystick (scaled of course) bypassing/replacing the rc section
of the autopilot.
Am i thinking rationally or this is the wrong way?
Any ideas welcomed :-)
