@SpencerPaire 3 жыл бұрын
This is was a brilliantly simple and elegant build! I always thought these kind of joystick or HOTAS set-ups would be really tricky. One suggestion for the code is it use the Button library. It handles all the current-state/previous-state internally so your code is a lot tighter. Also, you can use arrays to save yourself from repeating code for every axis/button. This makes it a lot easier to add more inputs down the line. That said, arrays can be difficult to figure out, especially with arrays of objects, so there's kind of a learning investment to do.

Thank you so much for this project Tom. This should be more accurately described as a HOTAS since it's a lot more than just a joystick. As a FS2020 user I've wanted something like this but you've given me the impetus to build it myself. I was originally using CH Products throttle and stick but the big issue is rudder pedals using a standard office chair. By modifying your design to anchor to the central pillar of the chair it should stop the chair rotating when applying pressure to the pedals. Another design question is that the brakes are supposed to be integrated into the pedals on light aircraft. Maybe a pair of button pads mounted above the rudder pedals?
@randysonnicksen9475 2 жыл бұрын
Thanks for this. I want to do exactly the same but for a helicopter, so will be adding a collective/throttle lever also. Especially thx for the tip on linear hall effect sensors. The link on your video is no longer valid, but I was able to find sensors for less than $1 US and the first one seemed to work great. This will greatly improve the reliability vs a potentiometer. I also really like how you use 80/20 extrusions. They are so handy for anything like this.

I have been designing something similar, very early stages, but one thing I am looking into is to surround the stick with a air bladder (similar to a blood pressure cuff) to make the stick stiffer at higher speeds. In fact, originally I was thinking of creating a seat with air bladders to (poorly) simulate G-forces in the seat. If the pilot is well strapped in, air bladders to the back, right and left inflate and push against the pilot (originally for simracing, but it would work for flight simulation as well with some modifications

Came here because I was wondering how the Joystick driver was made, of course there is already a Arduino library ;) Looking at your code I noticed a lot of duplication though, especially the switch part could be written way shorter. Just save the pin definitions and lastButtonState as array, then do the setup and readout in a for loop. CurrentButtonState does not need to be global, one temporary variable is enough. This might sound like overengineering, but it makes changing the pins way simpler as well. I can send you a pull request if you want.

used these videos as inspiration to build my own rudder pedals (with toe brakes). I'm finally at the programming steps and struggling with the Arduino Micro. I have used plenty of the 328p style arduinos with no issues, but this Micro (32u4) style is kicking my butt. the whole thing with COM3 & COM4 popping up in windows 10 device manager during the reset of the micro was a real hassle and of course when you upload the joystick library it changes to a new COM port. I haven't figured out a way to reprogram the Micro easily after it has the joystick sketch loaded as it is taking over the COM port at that point. I have to hook up my MEGA to flash the bootloader on the Micro and then reload the modified library... Is there a better way? would greatly appreciate any tips for fast code editing and uploading if you have any guidance on this dang MIcro.

I've found that with the Leonardo, when the Arduino IDE gets to the upload stage, pressing the reset button makes it enter programming mode as soon as it boots. Maybe the Pro Micro does this too? Alternatively, try the Leonardo.

How about using I²C hall effect sensor such as SI7210-B-00-IVR? That would be ~13 bit sensor with a cost of less than 1 euro. That supports 4 selectable I²C addresses so you could put 4 such sensors in a single wire. That sensor has internal for temperature compensation but it also supports reading the temperature so you can fix possible temperature caused drift in software, too.

The other option is programming the arduino to output a CPPM signal based off of the individual hall sensor's values, and then connecting that to the trainer port on your RC transmitter.

How do you wire up the hall sensors to the Arduino board? Where does the hall sensors get their power?

Hi Did you figure out the wiring for this build?

Can i use any of the official arduino nano boards? I read the 32u4 bit and none of the boards on the arduino website say they have a 32u4 processor

Arduino micro and leonardo have atmega 32u4. Atmega 328 in nano and uno don't support native usb and will not work.

I get "Error compiling for board Arduino Pro or Pro Mini." any advice

Buttons without pull-up resistors, and going to analog inputs? Never seen that before. Maybe reading all those ADC channels causes some latency, as compared to using pull-up resistors with digital inputs. Though I doubt any such latency it causes is on the 100ms scale. Still, makes me wonder where all that latency comes from, be nice to see you hook up a logic analyser to some digital outputs of the arduino, which are programmed to turn on at certain stages in the loop so you can debug your circuit without loading it down with much extra code. Using an external SPI ADC might speed things up, maybe.

You can use all inputs as digital. Atmega have internal pull-ups, no need for adding extra resistors.

Hi again ! What is it that a Leonardo can use Joystick.h but a Un can't ? Where can the source code for the Joystick.h be found ?
@No1sonuk 2 жыл бұрын
The Leonardo has the 32u4 processor - the Uno doesn't.

Hi, Im building my new Joystick after your video. Ive allready printed and assembled my gimbal and put the magnets and sensor in their place. When I connect it to my arduino (Im using your Arduino file) I can find it in the Windows gamepad controls. But what I see is confusing... The crosshair for the x- and y-axies is dancing around even if the gimbal is held absolutely still and even with calibration done before. Maybe somebodey can give me a hint what i have to do to get it working properly. Thanks a lot! :)

check again the correct alignment of magnets.
