Default Jet provost rudder pedal conversion

Hi all

thought I would share a little project I have taken on. Still waiting for delivery but should be here this week.

A set of jet provost rudder pedals with toe brakes.

I plan to use a Leobodnar board and hopefully hall sensors, but will take a closer look once it arrives.

I suggest use Bi-Tech 6127 HALL sensors, through R/C linkage.

https://www.digikey.com/product-deta...391-ND/2620660

Just pay attention in "electrical angle" of model, for pedal/joystick need be 60/90 degrees(more close to pedal angle movement).

Arrived today,

Very pleased with it, seems to be in good working order and well lubed, toe brakes feel sturdy, nicer than the plastic saitek ones I am used to.

as there is no centre spring I have been playing around with ideas.

Currently the best option seems to be a simple spring system.

Waiting for some more parts before I start trying to wire it up.

Hey Bignewy, nice find! Envious I must say.

Looks like a job for a few well placed Hall sensors.

I look forward to seeing how it develops.

Very nice kit there BIGNEWY, but why do you want springs?

Good question,

I am used to having a spring in pedals, my saitek ones do. I suppose I could give it a go without a spring, and using this simple method all I have to do is unhook the spring to try it out.

Well I have done that with mt saitek combat pro's ditched the detent as well for me this feels better, although there should be some resistance for helicopter and well even more so for air planes.

But actually I thought what about the bakes that could use some spring tension just to work against their travel.
