So what about arcade controls? Very cheap, usb interface, configurable for what the buttons do. I’m thinking of a small mounted panel with a joystick for X-Y motion and buttons for Z+, Z-, start, and stop.
I’m not a fan of the pendant keyboard either. Battery contacts were broken upon arrival. I used a wireless Xbox controller and mapped (Joy2Key) a joystick for XY control and the D-pad up/down for Z and left/right for tab, etc.
@Cpt_UhOh Gotta ask, Is the sound deadening stuff for resonate vibrations or?
And yeah, @Rotator definitely interested in seeing if you can get that pendant to work for you. Those definitely have a lot of nice options. Unfortunately, with the way the software interface works, I was afraid the biggest hurdle with one of those, is to figure out how to map the buttons without being constrained to the built-in keyboard shortcuts.
