Sideways Atari 5200 Controller

Recommended Posts

I made this a while back and wanted to share. As you can see, I cut the joystick down to make it more of a thumb stick. Moved the pot wires so that vertical is horizontal, and horizontal is vertical. Twisted the flex circuit around to where the 5 and 8 buttons become the fire buttons and then painted them orange. Glued aluminum foil dots to all the button contacts. Overall, an easy mod, and a much more comfortable controller to use.

Now if someone only came up with a kit or a new top shell and if possible flex circut this would solve alot of the problems with this stick.
