Joystick VKBsim

joystick: VKBsim gladiator,
hello pilots,
l have an question about joystick and airplane axis,
if l am not wrong, a plane has only 3 axis:
aileron (roll) axis
elevator (pitch) axis
rudder (yaw) axis

but in MSFS, why there is two joysticks ( joystick L and joystick R) and why there is 18 axis?
list of axis:
joystick L x axis
joystick L x- axis
joystick L x+ axis
joystick L y axis
joystick L y- axis
joystick L y+ axis
joystick L z axis
joystick L z- axis
joystick L z+ axis

joystick R x axis
joystick R x- axis
joystick R x+ axis
joystick R y axis
joystick R y- axis
joystick R y+ axis
joystick R z axis
joystick R z- axis
joystick R z+ axis

yes, there is two joysticks and 18 axis, how can l bind/assign my joystick , while my plane cessna 152 has only three axis why there are 18 axis???

Easy, highlight the stick you wish to program, find the flight controls category…

Assign your ailerons to Aileron Axis
Assign your elevators to Elevator Axis
Assign your rudder to Rudder Axis

Plainly explained here…
