Newbie to programming here, I wanted to ask some questions.

 

I hope I'm posting in the right place, I assume beginners would be the place for me.

There are a couple things I would like to know if are possible.

I would like to manipulate a ring with a motor. But I would like the ring to move to a specific position dictated by a joystick. In short, the marked forward position of the ring would be pointing the same direction as the joystick is pointing.
