    Lightbulb From wire to electrical

    How i got the throttle power handles from wire to electrical.

    The first trials ended with zero point constantly moved.



    Here one of the first tests

    I had to find a solution which could not get out of adjustment.



    And the solution was a small belt

    Belt is here mounted on the right wheel, You can see the tracks on the left wheel, in which the wire has been pulled.






    After several attempts to transmit the analog movement from power controls, the electrical signal from the two potentiometers are finally succeed.


    Once it has been completely USB ready, then I will put up a guide in PDF for free use.
