Wiring in the joystick. The thumb joystick and its break out board arrived and a process of substitution from the potentiometer wires made the pan and tilt connections. The shutter release is wired to the ‘gear’ channel: I hate soldering and, as ever I made a mess of this one. The contacts for the gear channel switch are a 50/50 on which should be wired to ground.

Siting the VRx antenna upsets the clean lines but it has to go somewhere:
So far so good: the gubbins is much reduced by the addition of the thumb joystick.
