I decided to build a full scale rudder pedal what would match the control stick I am working on.

-The dimensions and travel will be identic to the Bf109G6`s.
-Independent toe brakes
-Gas springs for the realistic force effects.
-Hall sensor for the yaw /high quality pots for the brakes
-Adjustable pedal angle

I have a pair of pedal castings to be used in this project.

Nice! You had those castings made for you, or is there someone who had a large run made for him and is selling them by the pair?

I use the same method as on the control stick. The only difference is that in this case I am using a gas spring to have a realistic force + damping sensation.

Here is a very early schematic:

You can also incorporate end stops in the cam, but make sure you dimension the bearing arm to be able to take the load. also, how do you account for asymmetry in the cam profile?
