Real Cessna Throttle and Mixture ...

Thanks to Martin Feist giving the right pointers and guidance, Vansaircraft for the HW and Lars for the assembling!

I'm using follow components:
- Throttle & Mixture including the long cables from a real Cessna.
- There I'm using 10k Ohms potentiometers sliders like they are used in sound mixers
- Joystick Board:

1. The long cables have a screw thread at the end --> Simple to connect with the potentiometers
2. Connect the potentiometers to one of the analog inputs with true 12-bit resolution from the Joystick Board. Check here:

--> After that, your mixture and throttle appear like a regular joystick

Enhancing Cockpit

Made pretty good progress with PID tuning, can be set now to be really smooth like in a plane. Currently embedding the learning into a little tool allowing to configure and auto-tune directly the board from Thanos.
Added finally my dream: Fully working G1000! (entire Cockpit mounting can be done with 4 screws). Using HW from Emuteq and SW from Flight1tech.

Created HOTAS console mounting kit for play seat, allowing to swap from Car to HOTAS within 1 minute:
