Retro fitting a old joystick/controller for modern games

This project is set to retrofit an old joystick/controller to work as a flight stick for pc flying games.

 

The system will use an arduino Teensy to make it pc compatible, a 16 Key Alphanumeric Keypad for mode selecting, One OLED display to show the mode, one Ir control kit for media control and a Saitek X36 joystick to house it all.

 

The arduino Teensy is able to nativly act as a Keyboard, Mouse, Joystick and a Midi device. the teensy will be connected to a rewired Saitek X36 joystick. Extras will be added later, extras may include an OLED display
