So as part of building an Ashida I need some GC joysticks. The BOM doesn't give a link to any but does recommend to harvest some from a GC controller but that has proved to be a colossal pain in the ass to try and remove them without wrecking them. So I have decided to go down the lazy path and just buy some off the internet. I have found these with a quick google search ---> Will this work or should I buy a different one?

Nunchucks are half decent for harvesting sticks from too if you can get a few of them

Just curious what kind of issues you were having in removing OEMs from OEM controllers? I was able to reliably get them off with a hot air station and making sure the heat was on an angle so that it didn't transfer through and melt any plastic on the joysticks.

Well I forgot the plastic does this magical thing known as melting under heat so I kinda melted the joysticks in the process of removing them lol.
