Surface Controller

(Christian) #207

…if you look at mine i have 2 joysticks(on/off buttons(2 way)) in front of my hall effeckts i use the buttons on top of the hall effect, to tilt cam, and use the “joystick” in front for the gripper… when i have upgraded it i will have the same with pich and roll in front of the hall effect;)…and just change the gripper in front of the vert joystick ;)…really practical to have everything within fingers reach ;)…and still have your little finger around the handles :cowboy_hat_face:

in my first design I used toggle switch instead push-buttons for camera and gripper but I found difficult to operate them. I find push buttons to be more easy to operate. Also, I found difficult for my right hand to do a second operation except the 3-axis joystick, so I moved both the camera and gripper buttons in front of the left joystick. At the same time because the left joystick is a single axis I can operate it with only one finger, the thumb. So I can use the index finger and the middle finger for {camera-titl-up and camera-titl-down} or {gripper-open and gripper-close} . Between the joysticks I have put push buttons for the lights and gain. In front of the right joystick I had put the arm/disarm and modes buttons because these buttons would be the least used buttons. When I finish the build I will checked how long you can work with a setup like that.

Here is a waterproof version I built for a client.

Much better buttons. Still backlit. Next version will have a switch to turn the backlight on/off.

Good one Paul.

Just a side note, 505-442 is the full harness with the buttons for those who buy the joystick with the dual buttons on the top.
