Gamepad Input in Python

Gamepad Input in Python   http://yameb.blogspot.com/2013/01/gamepad-input-in-python.html I want to be able to command my upcoming Quadrotor with a game controller, so I purchased a¬†Gigaware PC Wired Controller for $17 from Radioshack: Quadrotors are usually controlled with two thumbsticks (4 axes): Left Thumbstick Up/Down: Throttle Left Thumbstick Left/Right: Yaw Right Thumbstick Up/Down: Pitch Left Thumbstick Left/Right: Roll This inexpensive controller seems perfect for what I need it for, and there are some buttons I can use for initialization and other things.
