Joystick for Computing Shield

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I received my DUO w/ Computing Shield today and I'm looking for recommendations for a compatible joystick. Anything decent out there?

 

Thanks!

if you have some woodworking skills and simple electronics know how (or a good friend) you can also build one with arcade parts easy enough.  in my case, i just rewired an old usb arcade controller after i stripped out the usb bits n bobs. :)

You don't even need woodworking skills. You can buy a large project box from Fry's, Ebay, etc and just drill a few holes with a hole saw and install arcade sticks. Heck you can build the box out of cardboard and packing tape or hot glue, I used that construction method when I was a kid and still use it for prototypes and quick lashups. Cardboard is nice because it's free, can be cut with a steak knife or scissors and it's surprisingly strong when used properly.
