Joystick to trainerport

Post by tonnie78 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:24 am

I have recently converted a computer joystick to output CPPM to be used with a Taranis.

There was a request at our Dutch modellers forum by a man who's left arm was paralyzed.

So I disassembled the stick, connected the three pots yo a Arduino and added a slider to the top of the joystick. I also added a switch .

So in total 5 functions that can all be controlled by one hand.

Test flew it yesterday and it works like a charm.

Very well done tonnie78. Would you be willing to share your Arduino code?
Mike
