Joystick – FlightStick definition

In case anyone has a FlightStick joystick from CH products, I have one too.  I opened it up and figured out the pins to use it with Arduino’s Joystick program http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/JoyStick .  Although I had to update the program for Arduino 1.0.

Found this page with instructions for the same joystick
