Re: [Z_Scale] Joystick Throttles for folks with challenges
- For those of you who may know someone who needs a bit of help with throttles
(i.e., have trouble turning a knob).....and you are not an expert on buying
electronic parts and making your own circuitboards (or pegboards).
Here's a shortcut on how to get there:
when you build the kit, DO NOT solder the potentiometer into the circuit
board, instead use the wires coming from a pot in a joy stick to solder to those
pads. Your joystick should be of a type that has a spring return to the center
position. That will match the characteristics of the regulator (i.e., center
of rotation is zero volts output). You can always change out the
potentiometer in the joystick for one with a resistance value equal to the value of the
pot that comes with the kit...that would be even better.
Hope this helps someone,
