ultrastik analog joystick
ultimarc store

The most advanced arcade joystick ever made.
The UltraStik Is based around a true analog "engine" using advanced sensing technology which uses no contacts nor switches.
It can be used in many modes, ranging from simply replacing a micro-switch stick to a full analog flight stick with user-defined analog/digital mapping.
It has a built-in 8-button interface. Plugs direct into USB.
Flight Stick Version has top and trigger buttons pre-mapped as game controller buttons 1 and 2.

Ultrastik 360 Flight


  • True analog "engine". Full-motion "flight-stick" type control for todays games for which a switch-type stick is simply not enough.
  • On-board high-speed USB 2.0 interface. No need for any special interface board.
  • State-of-the-art sensing technology. No pots or other electrical contacts to wear out
  • Flight-Stik version has trigger and top buttons which are pre-mapped to game controller buttons.
  • User-definable IDs allow 4 joysticks to be plugged into a PC and individually controlled.
  • On-board interface which can optionally be used in two auto-detecting modes:
  • Input mode: Allows connection of up to 8 buttons per joystick.
  • Output mode: Allows joystick to be connected to an interface such as the I-PAC, to replace a standard switch-type joystick.
  • Sends analog data via USB to the PC either alongside the above modes, or when the auxiliary interface is not used.
  • User-definable mappings. 9 X 9-cell matrix ovelayed onto the analog motion allows 4-way, 8-way or any other maps to be created and stored semi-permanently in flash ROM.
  • Each cell can be set to any of 8 directions, centered, analog, or "sticky".
  • Any number of maps can be created so you could have special mappings for different games if you wish.
  • No need for any other stick as the UltraStik can operate in ANY mode, 4-way, 8-way, 2-way, 45 degree mode or any special mode you wish to define.
  • Maps downloaded instantly to joystick via USB and this can be done in the background when starting a game.
  • User-upgradeable firmware, downloadable via the web, for future updates.
  • Advanced configuration program allows creation and storage of maps, assignment of ID, and has a test facility.
  • Standard mounting hole pattern. Available with ball or bat-top handles or new Flight Stick.
  • Polished chromium plated shafts.
  • Fast on-board 24 Mhz processor performs automatic calibration, linearization and all other functions.
  • 14 bit analog-to-digital conversion for maximum resolution.
  • Customize your stick! Two different mechanical restrictor plates can optionally be fitted to the standard version, for mechanically-limited 4, 8 or "reduced travel" analog operation, for those who prefer a hardware-limited stick.
  • Optional longer handles available
  • Optional extra-stiff spring available for standard version.

NEW: Front-Mount Restrictor Kit:

This optional kit for the standard version has the following features:
  • Allows easy single-hole mounting in wood panels up to 19mm (3/4 in). Suggest also using our joystick mounting kit.
  • Switchable 4 or 8 wy to give a mechanical restriction for those who prefer this in addition to any software map.
  • Removeable for analog use giving maximum joystick travel
  • Consists of faceplate, 2 x insert halves, strong spring and extra-long handle (65mm, 2.5 in)
  • Requires 32mm (1.25in) panel hole.
