hello I have a set of thrustmaster elite rudder pedals with gameport connection ,I decided to see if i can convert to usb usage ,I opened up the pedals and was amazed what was inside ,! a single  pot with three tags  the centre connected to a red thin wire and the left connected to a thin white wire,the pot is connected on it otherside to a plastic gear connected to the rudder pedals,can anybody tell me if i need a diff pot ,or what to do if it is  poss to convert to usb usage,

many thanks for reading and any help you can give

Sounds like you will need an IO card for connections,ie Leo Bodnar. Just a guess though.

thanks for you reply ,I have been thinking I have a old  MS joystick with twist action for the rudder with a usb connection

maybe I can use parts from the joystick to make it work ,I will give it a go
