Rudder Pedals
Improved version

Rudder pedals


The key to good rudder pedal action is smooth sliding parts and strong centering force. The sliding parts need to be some length, to avoid lifting the rear section when braking. Try to make use of (almost) the full potmeter rotation for better accuracy.

It is possible to use proportional toe brakes by converting the pedal tilt action into potmeter rotation action by means of gears. Potmeters should then be connected to a hacked PCB from USB joystick. I haven’t tried this, as I’m quite satisfied with on/off brake action.

The above construction has some problems, see my improved version
