Received my Gameport Combat Stick for 5 bucks and I will try to make usb compatible adding MMJoy2 Board, seams to be easy then witl make of course.
Then I would improve it adding some hat or castle instead standard buttons. Someone did those kind of mod.
Is there some alternatives to expensive hardware i saw in DigiKey and similar supliers.
Thx alot for your information.

The solution is 3D printer, plus 4 or 5 6x6x4.3mm tactile micro-switches (e.g. from OMRON B3F series).

Commercial ready to use HAT" only these (expensive) in Digikey, Mouser, Aircraft Spruce (Apem, Otto...)

The less expensive of these is this model from Apem, identical to CH "China" HAT (trim).

An this from Aircraft Spruce - was used in Thrustmaster FCS sticks of 90's

BTW - Rel4y has "drop in" pot replacement with contactless sensor (KMZ41, similar to GVL224 MagREZ) for CH gimbal (at end of topic).
