Since everyone’s posting their setups, here’s mine for VR flight
Main flight stick gimbals have Hall effect sensors. The resistance is provided by a spring clamp on teflon sheets so its very smooth. A cam on another spring adjustment gives centering force for planes or none at all for heli’s.
The whole flight stick pops out so you can easily get in our out of the chair. A DSub9 connector has all the wires for the donated grip from an old broken saitek cyborg joystick.
The collective also has a similar teflon resistance adjustment. That and the twist throttle are on regular pots. The twist throttle tube is geared on the end and drives another gear pressed on the pot. The end has 2 switches, 2 buttons and a 5-way hat.
Last item to add was a trim wheel for when im not flying helis ; I manage to fit it next to the quadrant by placing the pot just behind the back edge; it’s geared 2:1 so the wheel can move 240 degrees and the pot stays in its 120 degree range.
I used a Arduino Leonardo for the stick/trim and some cheapo usb arcade controller for the collective.
