Assuming OS is Windows, you can check what axis you want to be throttle.
1. Type "joystick" into the desktop search bar and it should pull up "set up USB game controller".
2. From the list of controllers that appears choose the one you want
3. Press "Properties"
4. Here you should be able to see the axes and what they correspond to. I assume you want throttle as left, up and down.
5. Now knowing which axis is the one you want as throttle, open the joystick assignments menu in YS and bind it as you wish.

You can just move the axis while in the assignment window and it will autoselect if YS can see the axis/controller. Same with buttons

There is good video tutorial on connecting any RC Controller to PC for playing flightsim:
Then OS on your PC should recognize it & you would be able to map RC Controller key events in YSFlight via menu "Option(O) > Calibrate Joystick(J)".
