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

some one has suggested to me that I put some kind of hose clamp around the joy stick with two "control horns" sticking out at 90 degre angles and using servos to direct control the stick. I thought about that and realized that when you move one control it will arc the path of the other control. In other words the controls would be a little off and might make an arc turn when you want to go straight but probably not by much. This would probably be the easiest method but it would just have that one problem of arcing the joy stick one way or the other.
