With more time to tinker, I’ve put together a pan/tilt gimbal with servos and connected a joystick to control it via an Arduino. The joystick module I used is the common 5-pin, this one:
The particular component I used has a malfunction. I ordered a couple more, but it got me thinking about possibilities of using something more “robust”.
Any suggestions on a heartier dual axis joystick solution? I have an old CH products flightstick with 15-pin connector, but I’m wondering if hacking it for use might be (a) overkill, and (b) above my abilities.
Thanks in advance,
