Evolution Controllers Drone Input Modes

I've bought an Evolution Controllers "Drone" bluetooth controller. It's a very nice, small little controller designed to work with tablets and phones for gaming on the go. To aid with this, it supports a variety of "input modes" that define how it works.

Unfortunately, these are not documented anywhere, beyond the key combinations required to activate them.

So here you go, a table of the modes and what they do, based on the source itself.


Mode Enabled by LED Left Stick Right Stick D-pad Y B A X LB LT RB RT Select Start
Keyboard A Blue WASD WASD WASD I K M J Q Q P P R Y
iOS B Red ? ? WAXD/EQZC U/F J/N H/R Y/T I/M I/M K/P K/P L/V O/G
Gamepad X Green In this mode, the Drone acts like a gamepad - athough not an Xbox 360 controller
Keyboard/Mouse Y Yellow WASD Mouse WASD I K M J Left Click Q Right Click P Escape Enter
Joystick RB Purple Emulates a joystick (how does this differ from gamepad mode?)
GSRS D-pad Down Blue WASD IJKL WASD 4 1 2 3 5 6 7 8 Escape Enter
SSF Arcade D-pad Right Red ? ? WAXD/EQZC U/F J/N H/R Y/T I/M ? K/P ? L/V O/G
Gtel D-pad Up Yellow ? ? WASD E G H F B ? R ? A C
Gtel iCade D-pad Left Green ? ? WAXD/EQZC I/M O/G L/V K/P H/R ? J/N ? Y/T U/F
ICP LB Purple WASD WASD WASD I K J M Q LT? P RT? R Y

Important note: when two keys are listed, the first is on button down, the second is on button release.

WASD should be self explanatory to any gamer, but for those who don't know, WASD is pretty standard for FPSes - W is up, D is right, A is left, and S is down. IJKL is the same thing, but with the I, J, K, and L keys: I is up, L is right, J is left, and K is down.

WAXD is similar to WASD but with X replacing S. The second set of keys are the "released" keys.

Some of the chart is missing - I'm pretty sure those entries simply do nothing in those modes, but I haven't verified that yet.
