Thank you. Joystick holds as much strength than the plywood can hold. There are many many holes on joystick plate that there can be maybe 10 screws. In this case it will hold it as much as necessary. Whole suitcase will move if there is too much power used. Short shaft was on purpose because then its easier to close the suitcase. With longer shafts suitcase would have to be bigger. I think thar short or long shafts are both ok if they function as they should. So here is just normal shaft.I hope you have great suitcase. Would be nice to see it when finished.

Hi BrunoR114. Thank you.I think the compulsory parts : thin screen, arcade buttons kit, raspberry and power supply about 200. If I add there amplifier and speakers and all the wires, maybe 250. I did not count plywood.https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/lcd-scre...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/converte...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/arcade-k...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/raspberr...Have a great DIY times.
Hi Jongrrr. What you really need is power supply, thin screen, arcade kit buttons kit and raspberry.Rest is optional. I did not count cost of plywood because I had it already. But these are what I bought.https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/lcd-scre...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/converte...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/arcade-k...https://www.shortcutparts.com/collections/raspberr...So its about 200 at least I guess. Speakers and amplifiers does not cost so much more there.
Thank you Jones424. I haven't noticed any, I have heatsink coolers there. It has been on several hours and playing games has been normal. I hope you have great DIY times.
