Noob questions so bare with me. I?ve wanted to make a custom stick for awhile but since this?ll be the first one I?ll do, I?d like to keep the soldering to a minimum. I stumbled across a used TE stick for cheap (cheaper than buying the parts individually) and since it has all the parts I wanted, I was thinking of just transferring the parts over to the new case. Since the Xbox 360 PCB is plug n? play, I don?t think anything in this project would require soldering. I?ve got the case, mounting, and other things covered.
Is there a major drawback (technical) to doing in essence a ?brain transplant? verse starting from the bottom up? It seems like a very simple and easy way to change housing, plus I can always go back and change the buttons/stick if needed. Thanks.
