Pros:
Very simple to use, it is simply a potentiometer for each axis and a button. Use it to make remote controls for RC cars etc. Quite sturdy, very easy to get going with PICAXE and Arduino.
Cons:
Non-standard PCB spacing, designed for Xbox controller. Only fits Xbox knobs well.
Other:
Used it with ADC on PICAXE and Arduino projects to create an RC car. Very simple to use. Careful, each joystick takes 5 pins of your MCU.
Bottomline:
I highly recommend this product as it is simple, easy to use, and works very well.
