This joystick is a direct replacement for the Wico joystick used by Williams in Defender, Joust, Stargate, and Moon Patrol.
It uses roller bearings at the pivot to give a super smooth action that won't wear out like the original.
With all the slack taken out of the stick you get super fast and precise response. This joystick (or the Williams upgrade kit) is currently being enjoyed by many of the best players in the world.
The handle has a fixed 31mm ball on a stainless steel shaft, and it screws into the pivot. Note that this means an end to twiddling the handle between waves, so you'll have to find a new habit. It also may make it unsuitable for use at locations where users might steal the handle (although you could do it up tight with threadlock to make it near impossible to remove without tools).
For installation in a newly made wood control panel, there is no need to rebate a channel in the underside, just a tidy slot is needed.
There are two height variants, depending on the control panel thickness. For original control panels choose the following. The ball height will match orignal Williams installation.
19mm for Stargate, MoonPatrol, Joust, Ice Cold Beer,
21mm for Defender.
Note: Next batch will be available 7th May. Pre-orders will ship 7th May.
