Hi druid,

Welcome d00d.

Astro trackball panels do pop up from time to time on Yahoo, but nothing recently.

HTH

Cheers,

Ralph.

Wouldn't take much to make one. I'm drilling a hole in one of my frankenpanels tonight for the paradise arcade one that I got.

You could track down a virtua golf/dynamic golf control panel - I got a minty one on ebay for 120 USD shipped.
