Need some practice to get full control but just with arrow keys (no need joystick) you can get control of the spacecraft, try to not move fast and stabilise it unless you want to go far away. You can find all info on the wiki.

rudder, I use the number 5 key when it becomes unstable, neutralizes the controls. If you mix speed and other controls, it is like us old folks, lose control quickly. It would be rare for me to use a joystick with the ufo. The best keys are < and > and zero keypad button and enter. I guess you know about the [ and ] keys slow and speed up the speed rate.
