Under Option > Joystick/Key Assignment
Click the function you want to assign, click Change, then press the button or move the axis you want. It should autoselect. If it doesn't, make sure the controller is detected by your computer

Does your controller work in other games? If so, try binding a control to an axis for each of the six joysticks (eg elevator JOY1 AXIS1, aileron JOY2 AXIS1, rudder JOY3 AXIS1, etc), start a flight, and move every axis on your controller while watching for control movement ingame

I'd also recommend using DsHidMini to make it compatible with XInput. Never had a single problem trying to connect an XInput controller to YS.
