I tried the drivers they recommended, didn't work.
Download the driver from github then execute the following command chmod -R 755 LCD-show cd LCD-show/ sudo ./LCD5-show
^ The above did not work^
I used this and it worked:
in /boot/config.txt dtparam=audio=on gpu_mem_256=128 gpu_mem_512=256 gpu_mem_1024=256 overscan_scale=1 hdmi_force_hotplug=1 max_usb_current=1 hdmi_drive=1 hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=1 hdmi_mode=87 hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0 dtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900 display_rotate=0
I haven't tried the touchscreen yet, but in the reviews I found this to install the calibration tool:
sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator
I got this info from the first review on Amazon

Much cleaner build than my controller mount, great job!!!
Thanks, I realized a few things recently so I'm going to make some more changes.
To reduce the overall weight I can remove the rumble motors and battery from the controller, and the ethernet port and 2 of the USB ports from the PI.
Also to reduce the top heaviness I'm going to try and move the battery below the hinge instead of attached to the back of the screen.
Well, I got the 3.5 inch display today: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076M399XX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Has some pretty bad diagonal tearing, I'm probably just going to return it and use the 5 inch display.
I'd recommend the Pimoroni Hyperpixel 4.0 it comes in touch and non-touch version, my controller mount uses it and it is SUPER bright (I can play in full sunlight) 800x600 resolution. It uses the GPIO pins instead of HDMI and the footprint is about the same size as the Pi 3 itself. I think the power draw is only around 150mA.
awesome, thanks! I looked at that one when buying the 3.5 and didn't know if it would be as good considering it's not HDMI, so I went with the 3.5
only 150mA is awesome!! I'll order one of those and give it a try
@VictimRLSH Got my hyperpixel 4 in the mail today, this is the display I've been looking for, the quality is excellent, small text looks very crisp, the color is beautiful, and the viewing angle is much better than some other displays I've used. Thanks for the recommendation!
@mud2005 Glad you like it too! The newer model is slightly squarer than the older ones and the resolution is a bit different, you might have an even better one.
