  1. Objective: To activate the hidden calibration function in OEM Saitek Proflight Yoke driver. *** Disadvantage: The deadzones tab with deadzones adjustment function will be lost. ***. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJr-rI3I5Rc&t=59s
  2. To replace Saitek PS2 TPM quadrants faulty potentiometers with DIY Hall Effect sensors. Here is the YouTube video link: Thanks for watching.
  3. To replace CH Flight Sim Yoke Built in TPM faulty OEM potentiometers circuit board with Hall Effect Sensor units If interested here is the video link:
  4. Hello 9GTurn, Thank you, I appreciate the compliment. Love to hear from you about how you feel about the Honeycomb yoke later.
  5. Hello 9GTurn, Sorry to get back to you late. I was so tied up with my Microwave Oven repair and my friend's Toyota truck repair projects for the past two weeks. The major reasons in not sharing the 3D prints in Thingiverse are: (1) Mainly due to the requirement of above average soldering skill and generating tight tolerance of the HE sensor housing and moving parts are involved. Also each 3D printer of different brand will be required to spend time in calibration to reach the same working result. This process will discourage a lot of people with less patience and might consider this project is not work as its claimed. I know because I spent many hours in fine tuning the design after many failed 3D prints and constantly performing printer calibration. The true success rate is hard to keep by copying other people works in some cases. (2) I decide to keep the production of all parts in house and personally testing each unit before mailing out to users. In the meanwhile I will perfect my design with the positive or negative feedback from the users. (3) All the electronic parts, material and supplies that I am using are ordered in a small volume with fixed shipping charges and without discount. Some unused left over parts sitting in my drawer will be useful to others . That means I can produce one or two extra kits for others and reimburse the actual cost of the parts that I do not used (parts +tax + shipping) with a win win solution. Speaking about how it works, it is based on the simple principle of magnetism generated from moving magnets which control the flow of the current and create difference voltage potential inside the hall effect sensor IC. The controller board in the yoke will read these varying voltage signals in determine the corresponding position of the yoke during flight. The tooth parts ( I assumed you are referring those gears connect to the OEM potentiometers and the HE sensors in my case) are the moving linkage to rotate the magnets inside the housing in which creating the magnetic flux from weak to strong and vise versa impacting the HE sensor as the gears turn according to the pitching or rolling movement of the yoke. In fact there are a lot of good hall effect sensor information published on internet. I learnt my HE facts from many others good people working on HE joystick projects by googling since 2010. I am grateful and thankful for this opportunity to learn and design the HE sensor to improve my Flight Sim Yoke performance and hope to share with others in my spare time. Hope these answer your questions in your post. Thanks for your interest. Norman
  6. Hello Rhinozherous, The dimension of the original rocker switch on the switch panel is 32mm x 14mm. Check out the following rocker switch with dimension 30.8mm x 13.5mm on Ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-On-Off-Large-Rectangle-Rocker-Switch-LED-Lighted-Car-Dash-Boats-3-Pin-SPST/232605068084?hash=item362857ab34:g:G-YAAOSwEZdaPHCw Hope this helps.
  7. Tony, Thanks for showing interested in my HE upgrade project. All the parts illustrated in the video are my DIY works. The Hall Effect Sensor used in my project is an ratiometrics linear IC 3503. The housing for the HE sensors and magnets are designed and generated by my 3D software and 3D printer. Because these HE sensors are not commercial products, so there is no part number associated to them. If enough interests and inquires about these HE sensors show up, I am happy to sell HE kit in here at cost by request, of course in my spare time. If you have any questions please contact me @ ntydkhe@yahoo.com.
  8. This is my last HE upgrade project for CH Flight Sim Yoke. To replace OEM TPM faulty potentiometers and circuit board. Here is the YouTube link: https://youtu.be/MbewMwHsWuc
  9. This video shows how I upgraded my CH Pro Throttle USB with a Hall Effect Sensor. Thanks for watching. Here is the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j192Ko2WVWw
  10. To replace CH Pro Throttle USB OEM potentiometer with a DIY Hall Effect Sensor potentiometer. Here is the link: Thanks for watching.
  11. Good Morning jalbino59, I do not stock the kit in inventory for commercial selling. The roll and pitch axis sensors and HE connector are made by me after work hours with special requested order only. Appreciated your interested in my DIY project.
  12. Hi jalbino59, I designed and built the whole kit in 3D software and materialized the product from 3D printer. I bought all my electronic parts mainly from Mouser Electronics. This included all the JST cables, terminal blocks, permanent magnets and 3505 hall effect sensors etc. Note: Depended on your design and needs. the hall effect sensor is an linear type with various sensitivity and many to choose from . Thanks for your interested.
  13. I have published 3 videos on youtube regarding my upgrade installation processes. Here are the links: CH Flight Sim Yoke Hall Sensors Upgrade (Part 1 of 3) CH Flight Sim Yoke Hall Sensors Upgrade (Part 2 of 3) CH Flight Sim Yoke Hall Sensors Calibration (Part 3 of 3) Thanks for watching.
  14. Hello B777ER, If only the speed dial causing the problem and all the rest are functioning OK, possibly the accumulated dirt inside the dial give you unstable performance. You could clean the rotary dial by yourself or even replace it with a new one (cost a lot less).
  15. Hello Ziggy, Thanks for your comment. If you are referring to Saitek throttle quads, I do receive quite a few questions regarding the throttle quads w/ HE sensors. Not sure how to do it yet but I will put this throttle quads project in my to do list for this year. Yes, I have designed the yoke HE sensor in 3D software and materilaized the product from my 3D printer. I can make use of some HE sensor left over parts to build three to four HE sensor kits for sell to reimburse my actual cost for developing this project. Please contact me at ntydkhe@yahoo.com if your are interested. Really happy to share my project in this forum with all of you. Thank you and take care. ntydk
