Release Build your own custom button box controller

For anyone who's ever wanted to build their own custom button box controller, I've put together a video tutorial to help you along:

Will work with Elite Dangerous or any other space sim, flight sim, racing sim etc.

BTW this video is designed for newcomers with no experience in coding or electronics. There is a bunch of extra functionality you could get out of an arduino based button box (multi position switches, hat switches, mini joysticks etc) but I decided to leave that out and stick to components which are simpler to code and use.
 
If you only intend to use buttons then a zero delay board is much easier and no programming required.

Zero Delay Arcade USB Encoder on eBay are cheap as chips and come with all the wires etc.
