Charming DIY project adds 3D-printed joysticks and triggers to a PS4 controller
After delighting us with his 3D-printed joystick and throttle, which turned an Xbox One controller into a DIY HOTAS (hands on throttle-and-stick) setup, YouTuber Akaki Kuumeri has returned with a new version that works with the PS4’s Dualshock 4 controller. This time, there’s the option of having two joysticks and no throttle, plus thumbsticks and triggers to press the controller’s shoulder buttons and triggers.
The added triggers are great for playing flight combat games like the recently released Star Wars Squadrons, where you’ll need them for shooting down enemy ships. The joysticks’ triggers and buttons use lengths of string to press the controller’s buttons, which Kuumeri admits can feel a little flimsy.
