Wireless N64 Controllers

Aftermarket and official wireless controllers have been around for a long time. The old IR wireless controllers were pretty average and that's being nice, just need to break that beam and you could end up dieing in game..
One thing I never saw was a wireless N64 controller, did one ever come out. Pretty sure Nintendo never released one but an aftermarket one could have came out.
This article mentions someone who has recently developed new wireless controllers a couple of months back for NES, SNES & Maga Drive and will be making N64 ones as well. Dunno if any of it ever happened though:

Yeah my friend had one and we were amazed. Pretty sure it was aftermarket. And you had to always point it at the receiver on the console.

Would have there been any decent ones, I hate third party controls
Would transplanting a stick from another controller do anything to fix the issues do you think?

Depends on if the internals of this controller match the replacement sticks available. If your gonna change a stick you'd be better of just getting a real N64 controller and changing the stick on that. Unless your really keen on wireless.
I would really like a wireless controller because I wanna play from bed. May have to just get an extension lead
