We’ve got an “xkeys stick” at the lab. It works fine with hi, it is better than a QWERTY keyboard in that it will understand all of the keys, even if pressed at the same time.

Can’t control the lights with hi (obviously). Kind of expensive for 16 buttons.

I’ve also been looking at the xkeys joystick model – mostly because I’m
interested in 3-axis non-centering joystick inputs. would welcome any
comments from xkeys users or recommendations on alternatives (especially if
they’re cheaper!)

regards,
