    What to order

    Holy cow. The Minister of finances said I could buy something.

    Here is what I need to interface"

    Throttle quafrant = 4 slider pots.
    Column and yoke = 2 slider pots
    Rudder Pedals = 1 round pot
    Tiller = 1 round pot

    What would I need to order from OPencockpits to cover this . I already have the pots. Just need the cards

    Also,if you could tell me how you have done it.


    THks Mike

    Hi Mike

    It all depends what you are using to controll the rest of your Cockpit. I use all Elektronics from Opencockpits, and have to say easy to use and the best for the price.

    If you tell me more than I will make you a list in what you need.

    Cheers Norbert

    Mike, You do not have to use OC I/O Cards to run pots.
    All you need is USB joystick interface with 8 Axis.

    Here you can find cheap joystick interface:

    I have 2 of them, tested, works very well.

    Rudder Pedals = 1 round pot

    Don't forget that your pedals should have brakes as well...


    you can have 1 or even 2 more pots... (if used as differential brakes)
