I am at the stage of my custom stick design where I have only removed the screws from the back of a Mad Catz 360 common ground game pad.
I am a carpenter by trade and also a qualified electrician so later stages of the build such as building the housing case and the soldering are not a problem.
However, before I get to that stage I just need to know what can be removed from the PCB and what needs to remain in place.
What can be cut away?
How do I remove these things?
How to set the trigger buttons to neutral?
By this I mean the plastic trigger housing, the rumble motors, the rubber thumb sticks. Can I simply cut them all off or will soldering be required ??
Some step by step guidelines would be hugely appreciated together with diagrams.
