  1. Maybe I could try to make the mechanism more compact and cheapest.....๐Ÿค” Let's see.... M
  2. Eh....at the moment I builded this one and I really do not know how much it could cost.... If other people were interested, I could estimate the final cost.... M
  3. Google translator is my friend! No, the rubber cap is a car spare part. To be precise is a Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.4 diesel car gear lever....like the one in my car...๐Ÿ˜‰ Ciao! Marco
  4. Thank you for appreciation Soarfeat. For the boot do you mean the rubber one?
  5. Hi guys, after several weeks I finished the joystick. It works fine and the movements are smooth and precisesly. Next step will be the throttles with AS5600 Hall sensors. Ciao. Marco
  6. Hi Sokol, thanks for reply. Untill now I think its works good, very precise in operation, but you consider that is a couple of weeks I use AS5600, so I have not experience in the long period. Anyway I think is more easy to mount and use. For a dedicated topic ok, I will prepare some information about AS5600 and I will post. Ciao! Marco
  7. Hi guys, this my new project for engine throttles v2. I will use the hall sensors AS5600 by AMS. Let me know what do you think about. Ciao. Marco
  8. Hi Sokol, I used the AS5600, http://ams.com/eng/Products/Magnetic-Position-Sensors/Angle-Position-On-Axis/AS5600, as discussed several replies above. The sound "clank-clanck" it is audible only if the stick is swinging from its central position. Normally, handling the stick for normal operations, the sound it is hardly noticeable. Now I am redrawing the engines controls using the AS5600. Ciao! Marco
  9. Hello guys, after several months I managed to do operate the gimbal joystick, setting the Hall sensors properly. The joystick works fine and it seems precise and smooth in operation. Here some pictures of the joystick in position with the control stick. The aluminium metal sheet cover and the rubber bellow, inspired by my Ford Fiesta car gear shift rubber bellow, are still missing. I will set them next week after testing the joystick. As you can see on the video the springs are quite weak. I will replace them with strongest springs in the coming days. The yellow square is the place where I will open a squared wires passage to avoid tear off the cables with feet. Ciao! Marco
  10. Hi Rani, I must yet to set the Hall sensors and calibrate the angle, then I'll tell you if works....I hope...๐Ÿ˜ฌ Ciao! Marco
  11. Well, after several weeks I managed to build the designed gimbal joystick. ๐Ÿ˜€ Mechanically it works, now I proceed with the electronically parts....๐Ÿคž It seems a little "snappy" but with the long bar it should improve the fluidity of the movement, otherwise I adjust it to get a softer movement. Thanks for your comments and impressions. Ciao! Marco
  12. Did not you find anything on the internet? Last year I used Shapeways for 3D printing my handgrip joystick. It will not be cheap but at the moment I do not think there are many options ... Ciao. M
  13. Nice gimbal. Is the ispiration of mine one, under construction in this time.... Sokol but do you use a gimbal like this for your joystick? Ciao! Marco
