    I found these a while back but the only place I've ever seen them used is on the GPD XD micro console that's made in china. They work boss though, and are super tiny. No converter required as they're standard 2k pots. Should work on any normal controller that uses the sticks as voltage dividers. We need to find where to get these.

    The RKJXU also looks like a 1:1 3DS stick. I don't remember if I've tried any of these(if I did it was at downing's place) but they look really promising.

    I'm sure there's a place somewhere. Someone should check the usual channels, otherwise we may need to make an investment or something, heh.

    I think the concern here is more that they don't require converters that VITA stick do.

    Vita sticks are garbage imo. I hate them. These have a much better range and feel much more like a "normal" analog stick. And yes, no converter needed.

    I've heard great things about the GPD XD's sticks. If they live up to the promises, this could become the new standard. Im interested. Maybe mega might want to stock them along with the other general purpose portablizing things he plans on getting, like regs. If not, this could be a potential item for the bitbuilt store

    Are they about the same height as a 3DS with the nub would be?

    When mounted in the XD they are. I think they are a little thicker in the case, but not too much AFAIK.

    Wouldn't be a bad item to stock in the potential BitBuilt store. If we can get a decent stock of 50 or so it'd be nice to let everyone be able to buy them without waiting weeks for shipping.

    A group buy or forum stock would be epic, these sticks do look perfect.

    I for one would put money in up front if other people are up for it.

    I think part of this search is also to get away from sliders. At least it is for myself because they don't really feel like something I'd use to play GameCube, Wii, etc. sweet find nonetheless.

    We also need a source that supplies the caps too. How do these differ from 3ds sliders? I always liked the 3ds sliders

    They look like they're 1:1 clones. But I think they're a true 2k pot which means no more RDC boards as far as I'm aware.

    I'd rather have the sticks myself, but each to their own. :)

    I ordered 6 of them as a test run. Two are reserved for @Shank but the other 4 are still open if anyone would like em.
