    Question Servos for aircraft controls

    Hi all
    I am looking at different options to connect the cyclic, collective and pedals in my helicopter cockpit to the computer via usb.
    Is it possible to use servos form say model aircraft but heavy duty ones and if so what usb board would be recommend.

    Thanks

    Rhys

    you are talking about using servos to simulate the helicopter force trim, right?

    Not as inputs?

    Hi Triggerhappy
    I was looking at servos to operate cyclic, collective and pedals and found out that servos are no good for inputs.

    Cheers
