Here's my simple 'throttle', consisting of a car's electric mirror and window control, and 5 potentiometers (pots).


However I'd like to make some levers before BoB comes out...

I use a BU0836A to read the axes and buttons, and send them to windows/games.

Pots are needed if you want more than 90 degrees of angular travel (without gearing), and hall effect sensors/magnets have their own advantages (no wear, no spiking, adjustable sensitivity) if you want angular travel certainly below 90 degrees, and preferably below 45.

The link below has a rough guide for using hall effect sensors.
