    PITCH CONTROLS

    Hi all!

    I want to build a pitch control utilising a rotating disc like those in a 737. I know how to gear the disc to a potentiometer, but don't understand how to interface the pot, to flightsim?
    The movement of the pot, changes the pitch - but how?
    Can anybody help me understand how this works and what connections I need to make?

    Many thanks.

    Hi Tony,
    Connect your pot to a BU0836X card then assign the axis to elevator trim in FSUIPC!!

    Hi,

    You'll need an interface card with analog inputs like Leo Bodnar's, pokeys etc.
    Hook up the pot to the card and assign the axis in FSUIPC (paid version) and voila !
    Or you could use prosim or some such, even easier.
