  • DIY Rudder Pedals for Flight Simulator 11 months ago

    My favorite now Beechcraft King Air :) Landing on a short runway with a crosswind with reversing pitch of propellers is a real adrenaline rush.
    I'm connecting Thrustmaster direct, without interjacent setting software. By my meant, settings manager MSFS2020 is enough.

    My first idea was to buy a Logitech Yoke and remake it. I wanted to add feedback (dynamically changing the spring tension) and replace the potentiometers with Hall sensors. But now it is impossible to buy this joystick in Russia, it simply is not in stores. Maybe later...

    A little bit of back-story. Several years ago I making app for LEGO trains. But the owners of the LEGO trains could not fit the Arduino inside these trains. Arduino inside the train is necessary for the reason that to stop the train in a certain place, you need to block the rotation of the motor by an external command. The infrared control system provided with LEGO trains is closed to outside developers and is very primitive. It is impossible to organize timers, connect sensors and so on.
    For me, this story ended with the development of a Garden Trains app - https://arduinorailwaycontrol.com/applications.html#garden
    The modelers of such railways have a higher skilll of integration of electronics and have no problem integrating Arduino into trains.
    If you can install a microcontroller in your locomotive, then this system will work for you too. Then, for example, you can install a Hall sensor at the bottom of the locomotive body - then place a magnet (or some magnets if you need a lot of stops) between the rails and your task will be done.

    Yes, this could be done.
