Notebook Joystick

Flying > Flightsim > Hardware
Well, I will be away from home on a regular basis now and I want to have a joystick which I can take with me.

Here is the result: 55 x 70 x 26 mm in size. Two joystick modules and 4 potentiometers.

I removed the spring in one joystick modul so that this one is good for helicopter flying.

Here is the link to the Precision Joystick Controller BU0836 made available by Leo Bodnar.

The joystick is working very fine. The next step will be to simplify the joystick even more and to decrease the size.

Target will be to have a very small jostick for the right side of the notebook and a sliding rheostat for the left side of the notebook as a thrust lever/collective.
