I see where Weapon 1=Joystick 1, etc. However, I have yet to find what weapon is connected to Joy 2 ??

It only works on planes that have two different set of weapons which you trigger with two separate buttons. Note that on a number of american fighters (F4F, F4U, P51, P40) you have entire set of machineguns controlled by a single trigger and button 2 is useless. On others (like P38, P39, P47, F2A...) button #1 will tigger machineguns, and button #2 will fire cannon(s) or other set of machineguns.

Normally, button 1 = machineguns and button 2 = cannons. Thus an aircraft with cannons only (like the Tempest or LA-5) will not use button 1.

It's not a totally hard an fast rule though, especially in the case of uber-gunships like the FW-190, which just seems to fire random combinations of cannon and machinegun calibres whichever button I press. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
