    50k Ohm Slider Pot

    Hi all

    just wondering if a 50k Ohm linear Slider Potentiometer would work with leo Bodnar's Universal Joystick Controller BU0836X

    Cheers

    It should work. I do not see any problems with it.

    Thanks AndyT
    The reason I ask is the control rods on my heli simpit have 2 horizontal rods for the cyclic and 2 rods under the cockpit floor for the pedals.

    linear Slider Potentiometers would be the easiest setup just fix the pots to the cockpit and attach and fix the rods to the slider pots

    As long as the pots have enough travel you will be good to go.

    I only need about 60mm "30 forward 30 back" figure I will get a 100mm travel lenght to be on the safe side.
