NOTE TO NON-US INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
Some countries are not accepting mail imports during this COVID-19 crisis. Please check that your country is still receiving mail before ordering. Also some international shipping is unavailable entirely, in which cases orders may be delayed until shipping has normalized. This is due in large part to the United States Postal Service (and others around the world) using passenger aircraft to deliver mail. With so few flights operating now the ability to send mail has been greatly diminished.
Current Turnaround Time (US orders):
Sourcing materials has become slower due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus. The shipment of your modified controller may occur up to 2 weeks after you place the order.
Shipping Costs and Information:
Domestic United States of America (does not include Canada or Mexico): $10 cost, shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
Overseas (non-US): $25 cost, shipped via standard postal service. Please allow 1-2 additional weeks for shipping. Full unit value will be listed on the customs form. You are responsible for any local taxes or duties associated with this import.
This is a hand-built product that is constructed upon request. The turnaround time from order to shipping will vary based off order volume and workload.
Warranty and Disclaimer:
One year warranty after purchase, reasonable repair rates after that time. Please email me before returning any broken controller.
The controller is intended for adult full sized hands. Children or those with smaller hands may have issues reaching all of the reconfigured buttons.
This is the newly designed 2018 model of the Xbox One Single Handed Controller which has the following new features:
- New and improved lower analog stick that doubles as an additional handle grip.
- New secondary analog trigger that is far more ergonomic than our previous version.
- No visible mod wires.
- No visible hot glue.
- Uses the newest XB1S controller which is Bluetooth compatible for use with non-XB1 devices (PC, smart phones, etc)
- All controllers are now hand-built by Ben Heck himself on a per-order basis.
How It Works
As before, the theory of operation is to move all controls to one side of the controller so a person who only had the use of one hand can access everything.
The secondary analog trigger has been moved to the lower rear of the controller so it can be actuated with your middle finger.
The secondary analog has been moved to the bottom of the unit and enclosed inside a protective 3D printer shaft, which also doubles as an extended palm grip. For the left-handed controllers it is the right analog that is moved to the bottom (camera movement / aiming). For the right-handed controllers it is the left analog that has been moved (character movement).
The analog stick has a new custom 3D printed cap with laser-cut sandpaper grip on the bottom. The idea is you set this on your leg as you play. To move the secondary analog you actually tilt the controller itself, which in turn moves the analog stick using your leg as a pivot point.

Note: Typically I build these using white controllers as it’s easier to mark, mod and see things (my eyes aren’t getting any younger).
However if controller supplies are limited (such as during holidays) you may receive a controller of another color.
