Wanted - Joystick
« on: October 07, 2018, 06:30:07 AM »
Anyone got an old joystick to donate to a worthy cause? It does not need to be working,  I am primarily interested in the handle itself, and perhaps the base.

What is this worthy cause? I am making a hand controller to fly a model aircraft. Flypaper made something but my approach is different, as it will use a gyro/accelerometer "head tracker" to sense the controller's orientation in space and feed the transmitter via its Trainer port.

I have one that I haven't used in years; it's yours. I might even have a yoke and some rudder pedals if you want to take to the next level.

Thanks, I will take you up on the offer of the joystick.
My next flying day is Sunday, if the weather settles down a bit, may see you out at the Toyground then.
