You could have saved yourself a ton of time if you just bought one of these USB brackets (not necessarily this specific item, but something like it). If you try your hand at making one of those again, it's what I'd recommend using. You can remove the metal L-shaped bracket and remove the female connector at the end of the cable. It is normally meant to hook up to a USB header on a PC motherboard, but you can solder each wire to the pins of the USB connectors of the Pi. I'd also recommend getting some small electronics kits and getting a bit more practice with the iron. As others have mentioned your joints are not high quality and they might fail in time.
Great concept and I do enjoy the design. You certainly know your way around a 3D printer :)

This thread is for simple questions that don't warrant their own thread (although we strongly suggest checking the sidebar and the wiki before posting!). Please don't post involved questions that are better suited to a [Build Help], [Build Ready] or [Build Complete] post. Examples of questions:
- Is this RAM compatible with my motherboard?
- I'm thinking of getting a GTX 1070. Which one should I get?
- I'm on a very tight budget and I'm looking for a case < $50

Would you be happy with just using the rear panel USB? You have 2xUSB3.0 on the back plus 2xUSB2.0.
If you want more external USB2.0 ports (using your remaining internal headers) then you can buy a USB2.0 panel that gets mounted in a motherboard slot case bracket. I find that internal USB2.0 headers are useful for devices like coolers and fan controllers though.
Quick question regarding the X55 throttle. [R]4 years, 4 months agoOct. 29, 2015
Oct. 29, 2015
I have had my X-55 for over a year and its still going strong. If possible get yours from Fry's Electronics, in store pickup and return if something goes wrong.
Best bet with a X-55 is a powered USB Hub, to make sure the stick has clean power. Most issues with the stick are not "Poor Quality Control", but User Error and can be fixed with a powered hub.
Here is My Elite:Dangerous X-55 Map. I have 2 hats assigned to directional thrusting. One on the throttle for forward/back and up/down, and one on the stick for left/right and up/down.
And here is my Custom.binds file for the lazy. It goes in the following directory:<pre>
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous\Options\Bindings</pre>
And it will overwrite anything you have previously setup.
Here is a tool for pulling your custom.binds file and mapping it to a pic.
And here is a Button Map for reading my keybinds and comparing them to the Joy stick. Some of my functions are hidden behind a modifier switch in the stick pinky lever. The map doesn't see that, but if your read the key binds in the settings when you see 2 Joystick buttons that's the mix.
Just bought 2 X-55s for $310 - What should I expect? [R]4 years, 8 months agomysticviperx posted submission on hotas.

I've debated for about two months exactly which HOTAS I wanted to buy for myself and my significant other to fly around and shoot at each other. So I saw a week ago on Amazon that they dropped to $179. I was about to buy one but stopped. Waited until today, now they are down to $155 each. So I bought two just in case the price shot up (and it was a previously low price that I regretted missing).
I have seen there are spring/build issues, what should I expect or look for? Or do you all think I should return them immediately?

Looking for Internal Bluetooth Adapter. [R]4 years, 11 months agoeegras posted submission on pcmasterrace.
April 14, 2015
I have scoured Google and can only find usb bluetooth adapters but god damnit I want an internal one! Help me /pcmasterrace you're my only hope!
Edit. Really people.. just because I say internal doesn't mean I want the antennae inside of the computer of course the antennae sticks out just like a internal wifi adapter.
First Hotas (x-55) please help me [R]4 years, 12 months agomysticviperx posted submission on hotas.
March 30, 2015
Ok, I just got my first ever Hotas...saved my money...begged the wife and today it came!
I was so excited. I followed the directions and loaded everything the way it said to...but...now all the buttons work fine...the throttle works...but the joystick seems to always have x/y input.
In the settings page I can't get the crosshair to move at all..it just stays in the top right hand corner of the screen.
All the buttons work...all the switches and whatever all register my presses...hell even the Z axis works fine. But x/y is a no go. In the programing side the stick stays colored the whole time and randomly gets x/y inputs the whole time.
I'm running windows 8.1 ( I know I know)...
I'm going to try to delete everything and try downloading the drivers again...should I even bother keeping this up or should I just RMA this thing.....

Currently mine are all used up. What is the best method or product to get more slots without hindering performance?
[Build help] Need more USB 2.0 ports. [R]5 years, 12 months agofco2013 posted submission on buildapc.
March 30, 2014
A few of my USB devices won't work on my usb 3.0 ports, but i'm out of 2.0's
I see that there are quite a few 3.0 PCI expansion cards, but I don't see any for 2.0
Anything that would let my use my mic, headset, mouse, and webcam at the same time would be nice.
