Now, there are many RC controllers of different shapes and sizes. However, if you want to build something with the right number of buttons and sticks for your application, you may need to design something yourself. That’s what [Sebastian] did.
The project actually started some time ago, [Sebastian] shared his process of building a custom ergonomic shell by using clay and photogrammetry, which we have described before.
In this beautiful housing, the construction relies on an STM32 microcontroller connected to a series of potentiometers, buttons and a finger bar (more potentiometers). NRF24L01 module is used to process the wireless telex terminal of things.
In general, [Sebastian] provides a good guide for designing custom RC controllers from scratch, rather than simply guiding one person how to copy his own build. With these skills, any manufacturer should be able to manufacture its own fully customized controller. Play the video after the break.
