Yeah, I usually spend a month+ simply planning out everything (no exaggeration). During that time I go to a thrift store, pick out the best case for my design, and then make cardboard copies of all the components (mobo, batteries, etc). Then I use broken components and begin to map it all out in the case.

lol, even after all that, I often have to redo everything after modifying the case more. I can say that planning is almost half the work. The first version of my Ccube was godawful because I literally planned the whole thing in one evening (look back at my old pictures and you can see what I mean). My redesigned version of the Ccube is much better because I have spent over a month on just the case and planning. Blah blah blah, :P

What's the difference? I have a couple of PS2 controllers, and I don't care what revision they are as I'm not using them for modding. If I happen to have whatever revision makes it easier (I know one of them is a blue one like in the diagram above), I'd be glad to sell ya one.

PS2 Madcatz Retrocon controller. Expensive but officially the smallest PS2 controller you will find. The joysticks are extremely small too 8)

On this site you can actually see the difference with each controller board.

The main one i am looking for is this specific one

*Be advised that there is multiple "A" type controllers, but different boards inside.
Well I can't help you there. But the Madcatz controller has a very tiny joystick. As in the thickness is minimal. I don't know about the PCB inside though.

Alright, I have a type H and a "middle-version" type A (with the not-soldered-on membrane connection, here). You stated that you were interested in the late version A, but if mine helps in any way I'd be happy to sell it to you.

The PCB has to be used. It regulates overdischarging and over charging. Do without it and you will have a big melted blob of plastic and maybe a house fire.
