Hi all,

do you know if the Joystick TinyShield is discontinued? It says "sold out" for as long as I remember.
The TinyScreen Video Game Kit (ASK1007) is confirmedly discontinued, but it has five components out of which four are steadily available, the joystick being the only exception. It wouldn't make sense for it to be discontinued unless the Joystick is also sunset.

Hello,

Yes it is discontinued, sorry for the way it is presented on the website! It must have gotten lost when we changed over our website in the past year. This will be fixed today to correct the posting.

The joystick buttons were too difficult to manufacture with, so we opted for a joystick with an injection-molded (previously 3D printed with resin) attachment. The Video Game Kit became an all-in-one that can be seen with the Tiny Arcade, or the Pocket Arcade. These kits are cheaper and more functional than the previously sold Video Game Kit with all the same technical abilities and then some.

If you are looking for just joysticks, we also have the Joystick Wirelings.

Sorry about the misinformation, and please let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Laveréna

Hello Laveréna,

thank you for the prompt reply but none of them seem to be analog joysticks.
For RC motor controls they are unfortunately not at all similar.

Best regards,
Joseph
