Default RE: mechanically R/C'ing a joy stick

We took the joystick apart today to see what was inside. We found that the joy stick had another cup housing around it, but it has four wires coming out the bottom. we did not pull off the cup housing so we dont know whats in there. our teacher wants us to try and use relays to control the joystick to make it an electrical linkage instead of mechanical. The problem is we are unsure of how to go about using relays to do this. And then after we get the realys to control the joystick movements, how would we go about hooking that up to be controlled by the transmitter? Can you guys give me some more input?

Thanks, David.
