Whoop Whoop! The kit is now available to buy on our website!
The latest version of our joystick, nicknamed the RingStick. Plus an accessory joystick handle and trigger if you'd like to try flying a drone!
This is a homegrown project using mostly off the shelf parts and laser cut plywood. The RF link to the drone is achieved using a pair of nRF24L01 transceivers. Besides flying drones, we also wanted to try the prototype out as a PC gaming joystick, so made sure it could output HID as well.
For progress pictures and videos we have recorded the development of this project in our blog:
