This joystick requires 4.8mm crimped wires for connection.
This joystick has 4 x microswitches fitted with 4.8mm terminals.
Each microswitch will require 1 x 4.8mm ground connection and 1 x wire 4.8mm for signal connection.
For the ground connections, you can use the daisy chain ground harness 4.8mm. The grounds connect to the CO (common ground) terminals and the signal wires connect to the NO (normally open) terminals.
Pre-crimped wires and daisy chain harnesses can be purchased separately here:

Great solid stick! stainless steel rod and great feel. You can replace the switches if needed but I dont have the impression that this will be required any time soon. One small downside is that for large hands (size 10+) they may be a bit small if you mount them below a 2cm board (so I routed the board down to 1cm in the place where I mount the stick; there the size is fine).
High quality joystick. It feels very good
