So I can't post pics yet, but I am working on combining a Power A mini wiimote into a classic controller pro. It is the same thing MOG has been working on, and he has done some great stuff.

So Key points so far.

The mini wiimote does work with the Droid X at least, and it does connect to the classic controller pro.

I can't cut the wiimote pcb, because there are just too many connections all over the board, unlike the typical wiimote where the top half can be cut.

Next step is to solder the wires correctly for the wiimote and the classic controller.

Stay posted if interested. If it goes well, I plan to add a dock like MOG did, but also USB power and what not, depending how much I like it. Kind of just combining multiple things I've seen on the net.

That is totally wicked! I have been using a Wiimote to play GBA and SNES games quite a bit lately (ordered a classic controller online waiting for shipping). I love being able to not use the on screen controls.

I did something similar to this, but did not cut the controller I used an adapter and glued it. And modded a case to attach the phone to the controller.

Looks awesome :)

I've made 2 and will make my 3rd soon. Here's the idea for my 3rd.
-must use classic controller (not pro version) this gives u a flat back surface
-wiimote will be horizontal on the back of the CC (put the trigger on the back left side) gives u a nice trigger for shooter games!

Still need to see exactly how ill mount the phone but I really want a trigger like the n64 controller.

Just found this thread while searching for advise. I want to do something like this, but I want to mount the Power A board INSIDE the CC or CC Pro shell. Has anyone tried this, will it fit? I'd like a switch on it that tells the buttons to work as CC buttons or Wiimote buttons, and add a rechargable battery and charging port. Basically I want to make a copy of the Wii U branded Interworks Pro Controller that does exactly this. I would buy one, but I hear they don't work all that well. (bad dpad, shuts off, etc).
