Hello, I want to use my old gamepad to controlling Iris quadrotor in Gazebo, but I don't know how to configure launch file...

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (kernel: 5.0.0-37-generic)

Are you able to read sensor_msgs/Joy messages from your gamepad using joy_node?

yeah, but I don't get how to configure launch file to that (I can configure connection with mavsdk-server, but ports issues in mavros part are confusing me :/) edit: just installed QGroundControl, now I gonna easy configure gamepad for that :)
