Competition Pro. Joystick! 80's/90's vs. 2004/05!

As earlier mentioned I enjoy old computer games.
I have figured, that even digital joysticks don't get better after 10-20 years.
Luckily, SpeedLinkhas a released a 1:1 re-production model of the legendary Competition Pro in an USB variant.
Since I am bad at reading schemes and soldering, I have asked my Mac Gyver-like grandfather to do it! You can see the joystick cable with 9 pin D-SUB plug which will be used to teplace the USB PC cable! :)
