The Elite Dangerous Controller You Need In Your Life

This article has been re-upped because we think it’s too awesome to forget.

Elite Dangerous players, forget flight sticks and HOTAS; Matt Hale has created the most beautiful controller we’ve ever seen.

Matt originally revealed the build on Reddit and has since shared details of how you can build your own on Instructables, including the template of the exact layout he created.
