Step 29: Get rid of everything you don't need

Picture of Get rid of everything you don't need

The joystick is made up of a plastic.. well joystick, that presses 4 momentary switches, depening on which direction the joystick is pushed.   There are also 2 buton of to teh sides that are on their own little boards.

Since we are only interested in the switches, I stripped off all the other components with a heat gun (I used a Plastic Welder from Harbor Freight).
