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.

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.
