A little different throttle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

As a small used to play a lot with Legos :) so I thought after years of something useful to build. Started the testing with a simple model, and now already 1,5 year I use intensively the fourth generation of the Lego dice.

The main lever has a friction brake, and there are three more analog axis and it's electronically on the Mjoy16 plus three buttons. Visually does not seem doing so is hmatově is having a very pleasant and has a armrest under the palm.

 

I am very happy  :biggrin:  and thanks to the transfers I use 95% of the area of the potentiometer will ensure a long service life. Pet

Now that is fantastic.

I did not even know one could do this with Lego. Great thinking  :)

At the time of the Warthog hotas I did not expect any interest in the Lego construction. Tomorrow in daylight add more details.

During the construction there was not need to specially  :biggrin:  adjust the potentiometer that I used looks like 100% compatible.

The connection is absolutely easy using heat-shrink tubing no adhesive was used on the whole structure.

The main throttle has extra friction brake, using a rubber ring stiffness determines the number of washers.

Used universal circuit board to the dimensions that I needed and soldered the buttons.

The whole it revives the board Mjoy16 which is a lot of sophisticated and yet are the functions used 10% of its possibilities.

They can still be more modern technology but the brilliant Lego will be here forever.

Awesome, this got me thinking... I have an unused Logitech 3D lying around.

Hi,

after another year of use I decided to make larger adjustments on a Lego throttle.

I extended the overall base for the greater comfort of the wrists and the board Mjoy16 I hid nicely inside.

Modified the ergonomics of the grip tape, plus added the hat and other buttons on the base device.

Another change is the angle of deflection of the main lever, which is used as a better collective control of the helicopter.
