Potentiometers

Hi

I’m looking to make a Cessna throttle control box for my flight sim setup. I’m intending to use slide potentiometers so need to convert to digital and plug in to usb (like a joystick). I’m thinking of using Player X USB Games Controller PCB - does this support Pots and if so what value is best?

Thanks

The player X uses a switch / position type joystick, not one an analog one with pots. You’ll likely need to use an ADC to read the voltage on the pot to get position info. I think 10 k is what’s in joysticks?
