not sure if this is the right subforum, but moving on...

can anyone recommend a good place to purchase 2 replacement control sticks for standard N64 controllers?
i've seen some on ebay, but i'd also like to know what other reasonable sellers are available to compare.

also, has anyone installed one before? will it be simple? does it involve soldering etc?

thanks to anyone that can impart some advice

I spliced several dead controllers to make a working one once, in my opinion getting the spring sorted (they have a tendency to spring out) was the trickiest part. You might also consider taking notes on the shape and size as these springs are the main cause of the "wobble" the sticks on used controllers suffer from.

Depending on what level of replacement you are doing it can be only a little harder than replacing a set of brake blocks on a bike. If you are adding new electronic sensors then it could get a bit more complex but you should be able to do it all in one hit (attach with stick inserted).

As for sellers of parts, sorry I can not help you there.

i see thanks for the input.
though i think i'm leaning towards a more pre-prepared replacement like this

as it seems no extra compiling needed.
