This Polyshine had the limited electric angle needed:

Loot at models F10KV and FM10K.

The question is, where buy - in less than 1000 pieces?

That's good - thanks for finding (and sharing).

As for 100 pieces - well just find 333 quadrant owners (plus yourself makes the extra 1) and you have enough!

Have yet to see any concrete proof that it's bad for electrical contacts, too.

Use what you like, though - just saying
I got some bad experience with it. But well... It was a long time ago, I don't remember any specifics.

Hi everyone,

Great information in this thread! I am also considering replacing the worn-out spiking trim pots on my Saitek throttle quadrant.

However I wonder if someone could please clarify a couple of things for me.
(1) When I inspect the rotation angle of the lever, it is about 85 degrees, about 80 degrees of rotation in the potentiometer range and about 5 degrees in the detent (switch) range.
However, in post #7, Sokol1_br writes of a resistive trail of 30 deg to 50 deg. Which is it?
(2) The pot when inserted in the Saitek quad behaves as if it has a switch in the detent at the lower extreme. How is this achieved practically? Is it done via the firmware flashed to the controller? Note that the potentiometer itself does not have a switch at either extreme.

Thank you!

Chakko.

Just a guess, Saitek firmware can use specific value at end or start of pot' reading, e.g. 0 or 3,2 volts to activate the button.

With a multimeter you can measure the actual potentiometer and evaluate his real "electric effective range". Use the resistance scale.

Hello,
You might found those pots around Arduinos parts (joysticks) and PS4 joystick replacement. Found some on AliExpress
