It's made of two potentiometers of a 10k value each, one for x-axis and the other for y-axis and a tactile button for select which is activated when the joystick is pressed down
The two potentiometer are connected with a gimbal mechanism separating the horizontal and vertical movements
When in idle position, the stick is centered which means each potentiometer is in its center position or value. Back to axes notion, you can choose which potentiometer for which axis x or y randomly
This is the idle centered position for the stick so we must calibrate it to see a 0 value instead of value as a start
