I found these military simulator F-18 throttle grips from the now defunct high rev simulators many years ago on ebay.
I am now using the quarantine as a chance to finally build them into a working throttle quadrant.
The problem I've run into is how to hook up the transducer joystick. I can't find the part number as it seems to be under epoxy. Only thing I can find out is from that defunct product page
Throttle Target Designator Control (TDC-Slew) Or Radar Cursor Feels Real And Provides Real Time Accurate Data Flow. This Transducer Slew Uses Force Sensors On A Copper Beryllium Shaft To Sense And Transmit Electronic Movements. It Also Has The Down Select Switch With The Real Feel.
It has 6 wires, two of them short when the joystick is depressed (switch) and then 4 are arranged in a box, which I guess are for the 2 axis of strain gauges?
Anyone have any ideas how to convert these into a Potentiometer like signal?
