ATiny is a great little chip, low power, cheap to set up and compact. No Serial.prinln is available however so all testing is done on an Arduino Classic.
I tried out a little joystick I bought as a ‘bundle’ of sensors etc from China.
Fairly simple, using a more limited array of pins to connect to; two pulse width modulated pins and the rest as disgital pins (or use the PWM pins if you want.)
I used two digital pins and two PWM pins (see Fritzing diagrams)
I made a programmer board to plug into the Arduino as this was easier to carry about and re-use. Credit to Brian Lough on YouTube. Really Good Video.
Video and more pics to be uploaded very soon!
