The most advanced arcade joystick ever made. The UltraStik Is based around a true analogue "engine" using advanced sensing technology which uses no contacts nor switches.
It can be used in many modes, ranging from simply replacing a micro-switch stick to a full analogue flight stick with user-defined analogue/digital mapping and has a built-in 8-button interface. Plugs direct into USB.

True analogue "engine". Full-motion "flight-stick" type control for today's games for which a switch-type stick is simply not enough.
On-board high-speed USB 2.0 interface. No need for any special interface board.
State-of-the-art sensing technology. No pots or other electrical contacts to wear out
User-definable IDs allow 4 joysticks to be plugged into a PC and individually controlled.
On-board interface which can optionally be used in two auto-detecting modes:
Input mode: Allows connection of up to 8 buttons per joystick.
Output mode: Allows joystick to be connected to an interface such as the I-PAC, to replace a standard switch-type joystick.
Sends analogue data via USB to the PC either alongside the above modes, or when the auxiliary interface is not used.
User-definable mappings. 9 X 9-cell matrix overlay onto the analogue motion allows 4-way, 8-way or any other maps to be created and stored semi-permanently in flash ROM.
Each cell can be set to any of 8 directions, centred, analogue, or "sticky".
Any number of maps can be created so you could have special mappings for different games.
No need for any other stick as the UltraStik can operate in ANY mode, 4-way, 8-way, 2-way, 45 degree mode or any special mode you wish to define.
Maps downloaded instantly to joystick via USB and this can be done in the background when starting a game.
User-upgradeable firmware, downloadable via the web, for future updates.
Advanced configuration program allows creation and storage of maps, assignment of ID.
Features a test facility.
Standard mounting hole pattern.

Fast on-board 24 Mhz processor performs automatic calibration, linearisation and all other functions.
14 bit analogue-to-digital conversion for maximum resolution.
The Ultrstik 360FS works great and I love the buttons. It does however have a small flaw. The handle is not pointing straight forward but slightly counter-clockwise. Very annoying if you have (a little) OCD. Ultimarc is looking into this.
