Byrdo's sticks template?


#1

Hi, I’m looking for the dimensions for the Byrdo sticks refering to this style:

Thx.

Based on his old blue prints I can only guess that it is about 12" to 12.5" wide by 9" front to back. Only Byrdo (or the stickz owner) knows for sure.


#3

Hmmm… it looks more of a 10-11" from side to side and 7-8" top to bottom for the top panel, am I wrong?

Anyone that has one can help me out? I will appreciate it a lot, thx.


#4

Any particular reason you need to know the dimensions? Just asking out of curiosity.


#5

Yeah, why do you ask? Trying to emulate that stick? Why don’t you enlarge the pic in a photo editor to the scale of the Sanwa buttons and go from there. I’d do it, but I have no desire to copy his design, because I’m a man.

Be the man.

I calculate it as 28 x 20cm (give or take some mm) so it must be 11" x 8".

is this it? I saved it from before but forgot which thread it was. great stick design by byrdo btw

I don’t know if he would approve of me doing this so if he wants I take it down

Wow, you guys think in a funny way. The only reason I want the dimension is because I think his joysticks are very nice and the reason he used these dimensions is probably because it’s a good balance of space saving and still having a convenient joystick. I just don’t want to make a box that all show but no go, so if that somehow have a link with being a man or not… I guess I’ll have to take lesson from a “real” man.

Thx toxic for this template but that isn’t exactly the same template, I still appreciate your help.

It’s up to you to determine the dimensions you need. Off-the-shelf stuff is never “just right” for anybody.


#10

Seriously, what a weak answer. You can’t determine “a good balance of space saving and still having a convenient joystick” on your own? It’s not rocket science.:arazz:

A good stick is what’s comfortable to you and to ask such questions proves that you have even less of a clue than you’d like us to believe.


#11

I see… but I don’t see why some people just don’t stfu when they cannot help. Talking shit doesn’t help for anything. I’m sorry for you.


#12

If nobody speaks up who knows when you’ll see the truth?


#13

they’re right in a way tho, why not just experiment with a few designs of your own. or guess a number and run with it.

you’ll be much more satisfied if you come up with a sick design of your own
