Does anyone here have one of theses?

On the back of the instruction manual for No Escape there is an offer for this joystick for free all you need is a proof of purchase and $1.50 for postage. Too bad this offer expired Dec. 31 1983.

I would really like to have one of these. it looks just like a Fairchild Channel F controller.

I have one, but it doesn't work.. it's a really weird looking thing. At first I thought it *was* a Channel F controller, until I looked closer.

I'm trying to fix it.. I haven't opened it up yet, but I'm kind of curious what will be in there.

Cheers,

Mike

Well, I had one and it had to be the worst controller I ever owned. Not only was it uncomfortable, it was unresponsive.

I'm actually thankful that it broke within a month of having received it as it gave me the opportunity to dissect it for wacky controller projects I did at the time.

Of course, I still need to replace my manual for No Escape because of the furshulinger order form I cut out.

If you find one, don't pay a lot for it and don't say I didn't warn you.

It says right on the offer, "It fits comfortably into your hand, provides maximum responce and expert finesse."

Why would they lie to us like that?
