Check my website:

First you will need:

  • Joystick(mine had already a small throttle switch)if yours don’t have i will teach you how to make after


Step 1:

Picture of

 Now open your joystick and take out the potentiometers that control the movement

Step 2:

Take a box and house everything in.

Glue the left and right potentiometer in the middle of the box,like mine:

Step 3:

Now cut a piece of cardboard/wood a little bigger than the wood/pvc etc that is glued in the yoke

Step 4:

Picture of
  • Now cut a piece of wood or cardboard and glue it in up and down potentiometer,then put glue on a stick and glue it in the piece of wood that is used for left and right.
  • BUT you must cut a little piece from the wood that is glued in the potentiometer so it can slide when you turn it left and right like my video.





  • Now,if you don’t have throttle from your joystick get a gamepad and glue a piece of wood in one of the two axis and set your gamepad axis in the game that you are playing as throttle
  • If your joystick has throttle and you made it like mine or with your ideas and you want spoilers and flaps(or one of them) get a gamepad and glue two sticks in the two axis.
