Sparkfun support will be closed from 3:00PM to 4:15PM on April 27th for a company-wide townhall meeting. We will resume regular hours on the 28th.
Description: This is a heavy-duty joystick very similar to the ones in claw arcade games. Directional movements are momentary limit switches - one for each direction. This joystick also has a select button that is actuated when the red button is pressed down.
This joystick is pretty beefy and very tall because of it. We built up an enclosure just to see what it would look like. Ideally, this joystick would be panel mounted, but actually reading the movement of the joystick is as simple as setting up the microcontroller to read five switches.

Great value for the cost! I bought several and when I need more I will purchase from Sparkfun again.
