Yeah Polychop Kiowa, Barundus has some excellent videos of it on youtube. Very exciting looking project. That said I am struggling for hat switches at the moment, the ones I have are two hard to work with and I think the ones I ordered are momentaries but I cant find any hat switches on themarket as a self contained product, so I am debating chopping up other joysticks vs having to build something myself.

Something of a mini update. Have been struggling with the Twist throttle behaviour for days so decided to swap out the rotary with a slide resistor, but couldn't find a way to mount it so gave up and added a rotary to the side as an additional axis which I had originally intended to do as zoom, but figured could double as throttle while I tried to find something else

But in the process of configuring it and the slider I realised the problem with the throttle was that I had assigned the throttle resistor to the X-axis on the board which meant Windows was trying to 'centre' it when I finished regardless of where it was. Moving the resistor to axis 8 on the Leobodnar board had Windows recognise it as a slider which meant it stopped trying to centre the axis and it now works. I am getting about 200 steps across 40ish degrees of travel which is a little low but seems to work fine for a helo throttle.

Honestly this was my own documentation thread, Id really rather not turn it into another thread to try and promote your non released collective Thick.

Version 2 coming together, still waiting on electronic parts to arrive. Going to add a Motorcycle damper to see if it gives a smoother travel
