Help please on rudder wrirng

Recommended Posts

Guest

I have made rudder pedals with a 100K pot. After researching this site and others, the advice is to wire the pot between pins 9 and 11 on the DB15 plug.On opening the plug, there was already a wire on pin 11 which I removed and, in turn connected the 100k pot.By doing this, the pedals worked ok but,disconnecting the existing wire from pin 11 caused the throttle axis on my Suncom/dual throttle combo to cease working?Before this, I was using one othe side of the split throttle for throttle and the other side as an elevator trim.I realize I can reassign the elevator axis to throttle but, is there any way i could wire the rudder to fifferent pins and leave the throttle/elevator trim intact?Thanks in anticipation(PS I fly wilcos 767 PIC all the time)

The standard gameport will interface only four potentiometers and four switches. A pot is wired from an axis input pin to a +5 volt pin. Axis input pins are pins 3, 6, 11 and 13. +5 volts is available on pins 1, 8 and 9. To reduce noise pick up, your wiring to the pots should use shielded wire. Tie the shield to pin 4 or 5. The other end of the shield does not have to be connected. (If you happen to run across an old gameport document it may show pin 12 as ground and pin 15 as +5 volts as well. Don't use these as they are almost certainly MIDI data pins.)If you have a need for more than four pot inputs, you can add another sound card or use a gameport to USB adapter (assuming you have an available USB port). Check Radio Shack or do a web seach for gameport to USB adapters. Rockfire is a trade name for one.Check The Stickworks http://home.att.net/~stickworks/ or http://www.mikesflightdeck.com/gameport_1.htm for more info.Mikewww.mikesflightdeck.com

PeterKI did the same thing with my suncom f15 stick and throttle..its not pin 11.. On the suncom the left throttle is the rudder the right throttleis (the throttle)...with an ohm meter measure the two throttles out with the pin unlocked...and you will see you error..pete http://home.attbi.com/~fs-cockpitsimulator
