Convert an old contrller to a PC joystick

Hi all,

I just finished writing a document on how to convert an old radio controller to a PC joystick. This will work with Real-Flight and almost any simulator. You don't have to replace the potentiometers. I built 5 of these joysticks, and thy work with excelent quality.

1. Email me if you want the document.

2. Since I am not a native english speaker, I'll appriciate it very much if someone could go over the document, correct it, and improve it.

-Guy

I'm guessing that the OP wasn't even using USB given the age of the thread... probably the serial game port. Barely anybody used USB for joysticks at that point.
