The CS3 is an extremely rugged joystick in an ultra-compact and versatile design. The durable housing and center pivot design make this device resistant to abuse and ideally suited for high duty cycle applications.
1, 2 and 3 axis control is available as well as a variety of standard and custom handles and grips with push buttons and levers. Both separate and simultaneous operation of each is achieved with standard gate patterns.
