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

Im not exactly sure how to go about controling it with patch cords or really even what that would involve, maybe someone else on my team could look into that. I will be the first to admit I am not exactly electrically inclined I am more of a "mechanical" type thinker. I havent taken apart the joystick yet so none of us know exactly how it is being controled. It is sort of an older model electric wheel chair but maybe that we could use servos to direct control the electronics on the inside. I dont believe it has to have super quick movements so if it has a little slop, that is to be expected and is not that big of a deal for us.

edit. wow, did not see all those posts inbetween, you guys must have snuck in there.
