Anyone knows where to get joystick component like RC remote controller? Not PS2 type of joystick.
Thanks for any info.
I think we are all assuming that we all know the difference between analog and digital. Just to be sure.
The joystick that Jax is showing, and an Atari are on/off push buttons --digital. The RC transmitter has sticks with potentiometers --analog. Neither is better or worse, it all depends on your application.
Just wanted to catch a simple (potential) mistake before you ordered anything.
By the way, on most RC (airplane style) transmitters I have taken apart, the joysticks themselves usually come out as one, stand-alone peice. Easily remountable. Not to say that super-cheapie from hobby king will be like this, but I would be surprised if it were not.
Off the subject, I want that joystick Jax! I have no idea what I would use if for, but I want it. If I had a coffee table, I would mount it right in the center and use it to change channels on the TV.
I found this arcade-style one (3" x 3.5") and have been trying to figure out how to add it to anything I'm building:
It's a Californian company but I thought I'd throw that out there. Maybe a little overboard but it looks so rugged.
Sounds like a good idea! Thanks!
Buy a cheap controller. Right now, hobby king has a 4 channel transmitter (two sticks) for $24. That's $12 per joystick and they are brand-new. Just rip them out.
plus he gets the rc gear inside ! 2.4ghz as well ! so its a good option all in all !
