proportional electro hydraulic joysticks


I have a small timber crane that came with manaul controls. I had an electro hydraulic valve block off a hardi sprayer and mounted it on the crane, fitted 2 small electric joysticks and to be fair it works ok but have absolutely no control of speed as the valves just open full and close etc. I added some hydraulic flow taps on the line to slow down the flow to specific rams and it made quite a decent job of the movements but i was wondering if i used proportional joysticks would it make it any nicer to operate or would it even work at all?
