    Re: Encoder push - pull

    Thanks.

    A pilot told me that the button has two functions when you press it.
    Half way in and you can set your speed and heading range rapidly. But this extra challenge is being resolved to mount an encoder with a momentary switch.
    A slight pressure will act on the encoder switch, more pressure affects toggle switch.
