    build joystick

    Hi :)

    It depend if you need analog or digital Joy.
    I have myself use one analog PS1 Joy but it was shit to use because the
    full range was only +/- 20° for each axis.
    The best to do if you want analog is just to use analog PC Joy and change the
    2 axis potentiometer if they are Log and not Linear models.
    For C64 like digital joy is alot easyer to do , i have got some from the 5 way
    mini joy from TechToys and it work well.

    with this one you get 1 switch / direction + fire.
    And why build yourself anything you can get for just some € ... :D
    Now if your bots run wireless just add 433Mhz RX/TX module to your controller
    and i think it will be good ...

    Regards.
