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]

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.

I use this powered internal hub and this PCI expansion slot accessory. Nice clean power and no extra adapters or cables out side my case.

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]

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?

oh, and on the subjet of powered hubs, i have mine hooked up to this, and its quite nice. also you can get one of these and add it to one of your pci expansion slots so it will look nice. It gives nice clean power to your hotas and doesnt chew up usb ports if you dont have enough.

Looking for Internal Bluetooth Adapter. [R]

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.

External antennas. Bluetooth adapters don't have external antennas. You can find Wifi/Bluetooth combination cards like this one.

Maybe getting a USB header to USB adapter PCI slot cover would work better.

First Hotas (x-55) please help me [R]

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.....

what ports do you have it plugged into? USB2 or USB3?

I have mine plugged into a dedicated 2.0 powered hub, and the stick has worked flawlessly. Bad power (ie: too much, or too little) can cause the sticks to do weird things.

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.

You could get one of these, which plugs into your headers on the motherboard. Amazon

Or you could buy a hub with 3+ ports attach it to a USB port, and then have more ports. Amazon
