    Newbie looking for advice

    Hi
    My name is Rhys and this is my first post, so first things first hello.

    I am about to start building a helicopter simulator from the old cockpit of a Hughes 300, using real helicopter controls.

    I was going to use the plasma lite from Betainnovations but sadly they have closed.

    I want to use linear potentiometers to connect to the helicopter control rods in the cockpit but I am not sure what interface to use between the potentiometers to the computer.

    I would love some advice on what methods would be best to interface the aircraft controls to the computer.

    Thanks

    Rhys
