Control position transduction in the real world


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm sitting here looking at encoders and potentiometers online. And I'm wondering. how is the position of the flight stick determined in a real aircraft. I know there are direct linkages to the control surfaces in aircraft (are there any aircraft that don't have a direct mechanical connection?) But I also know that the flight computer needs to know the position of the stick. So how do they do that, $0.30 joystick pots :megalol: Optical encoders or really really nice pots?


I put this in input output because maybe someday I'll use that method to control my sim aircraft.

Light the tires kick the fires!
