Soldering mission 1 complete.

Desoldered two joystick modules from a dead XBox controller and used one to replace a stick with drift.

This one makes controller 6 out of 10 saved from the dump in a fall pallet shopping spree. All of them needed repairs and no parts have been purchased.

Should be able to repair one more with drift.

Solder job isn't the greatest, but first one in quite a while so I'm rusty. Papa Rossmann has been keeping me up to speed though.
