    It's about a DIY USB vertical handbrake with gas spring 10 kg that can be used both analog or digital depends on game.

    I used an old Logitech attack 3 joystick that I don't using it anymore and disassembled it

    I cut the frame and kept the mounting holes like the pic

    I used Plexiglas to lock one axis and also glued a micro switch (from attack 3 joystick) for analog axis
