Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone,

 

It's been about more than a year since I have wanted to make my own version of force controlled joystick.

 

With some incouragement of some friends - It has been back to the sketch board...

 

Here's are the resuts:

 

2 Prototypes:

 

Single axis and Dual axis configuration.

 

attached are files describing HowTo's and some pictures.

 

If ther's an interest- I'll further explain how its possible to make almost any joystick to become A force controlled one...

 

The coin in one of the pics is a NIS (NEW ISRAELI SHEKEL), It's diameter is 18 mm.

 

BTW

The stick grip in the pic is A VERY OLD stick that I had.

I definatly intend to replace it with a modern one...:thumbup:

I'm happy to say that this configuration is totally usable.

 

It could use some fine tuning, but I dont really have the time now...

I finally started to build my new house. a bigger one that will allow me to have my own cockpit ...( and I even got my wife's "permission" signed by a lawyer...:thumbup:)

 

I'll keep updating every once in a while.

 

If anyone have specific questions - I probably have the answers so - shoot !

 

I intend to further develop this "project" so it would also have trimmers and sensitivity control.

 

If any comments and/or requests please feel free to share, as I believe that a good solution comes from the pepole who need and use it...

 

Cheers

Hi there...

 

I finally got to a tomporary residence... until my house will be built...

 

But the reason for this update is this tiny board.

 

It can be used as an independent module and as such can be fitted on many types of interfaces,such as , Mjoy , LEO's boards and many others...

You might even want to convert you current joystick that can be of any brand. (you need ofcourse to take care of the mechanical side...)

 

Here's a sample of the second version of the prototype.(the coins diameter is 18 mm)

When I'll get some time to arrange the layout and some documentation - ill post it...

 

I still wish to add some features as described on the comment above, yet, this setup is working you may use it freely...:thumbup:
