 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I am  trying to connect a Thrustmaster T. Flight Stick x, a joystick to the Arduino. The joystick says it is able to connect with ps3 and pcs. I want to take the signals from the joystick and convert the outputs into voltages that will be sent to run solenoids turning them on or off.

Does anyone know how to have the arduino read the joystick signals?

You would probably need to hack the joystick to get the analog output of the pots in the joystick.
