how many axis does Xkeys matrix board support?

Recommended Posts

I am planing to build my own generic flight control system from scrash by connecting all sort of switches together to make stick, throttle and rudder units all connecting to Xkeys matrix board. But I'm wondering how many axis does Xkeys support? In the download manual didn't mention anything about axises, which I need loads of them for sticks, throttles, rudder, breaks, speadbreaks, mixture, prop pitch, wingsweap etc.... I plan to use potentiometers for all these axis but don't know Xkeys would take it. thanks

I'm not completely sure, but I think that X-keys only handles keys and not axis. Take a look at betainnovations Plasma MiniMe USB joystick controller, it handles 5 axis and 12 buttons.You can combine it with x-keys to add more buttons if you like.Johan

I use X-keys and it does not have axis support. I believe there is an add on for joystick support.My recommendation is the same as Johan's. Use Leo's products. If you wish to have more keys the X-key board is a good product and simple to use.John
