    Upgrading a yoke from gameport to usb

    Hello!

    I'm Jose and glad to be here.

    I have an old AETI all metal yoke with a game port controller. I've used a game port to usb converter successfully for win 7 64, but lately I've had to replace the converter and the the new ones (I've tried more than one) don't work as well as the old one did. I want to change the internal electronic components of my yoke and was wondering if someone can help me locate some parts:

    All the electronic parts are replaceable.

    2 Dual rocker switches (8 buttons)
    4 push buttons
    1 side potentiometer (Elevator)
    1 rotary potentiometer (Aileron)
    1 game port electronic controller

    I need an USB electronic controller board that will support 12 buttons or less and 2 analog inputs (X & Y Axis). I can get the buttons and rocker switches but need to buy a controller board for internal use.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Thanks.
    Jose

    Hi Les,

    Thank you very much for your quick response.

    I don't see the Buo386, but the BU0836A should meet my need. Based on the sales page I can use only the 2 analog inputs, hat, and a few buttons. Here's the link:

    Jose,
    You missed of the X, version is there at the top of the page, dearer than the A. The A version can do limited number of switches before you have to add a diode matrix. The x takes inputs directly and has push in terminals making connections easier.
