    Hi Zach,

    I am sure you need to make this with a sliding potentiometer and not the rotary encoder. If this is correct there is a tutorial on Flightsim.com. From their main menu, you navigate to the How-to Section. This is for a cessna if I remember rightly.

    Here is the link http://www.flightsim.com/main/howto/pushpull.htm

    Kind Regards

    Bernie.

    Zach,

    That link shows the hardware. You will still need the interface to the computer. An old joystick is probably the cheapest way to get a card that works with pots.
