Joystick with Rift and Vive

Hi,

I've checked the forum but can't find an answer to this.

I want to use a joystick for navigation in a maze and use it with either an Oculus rift cv1 or an HTC Vive (or possibly both HMDs (not together :-))
NB each HMD would use their supplied tracking system (ie not PPT cameras)

However I want the direction of movement only to be controlled by the joystick and turning the HMD only to effect the direction of view (but not of motion) i.e. NOT like the vizconnect mouse and keyboard demo where forward is always in the direction you're looking at.

I assume it's going to be relatively straightforward to use vizconnect to create the setup I want but I wanted to check first in case there was any advice?

In particular, is this just the same with both models of HMD? If not, which one is better/easier to use and is there anything in particular I should watch out for?

Thanks,
John
