hall sensor

Several times it was mentioned here about the use of a hall sensor as a replacement for the potentiometer.
I think it is good idea, but you need to consider that direct connection is not possible because at the output from the sensor you will not get 0-5V as in potentiometer circuit but something about 1-4.2V
In addition only small part of hall sensors has linear characteristics. The one of them is AH49E (if you need I found the best mechanical solution for sensor placement at: allegromicro )
Anyway, there is a smart software which can help you to use AH49E and have an output volatge level at 0-5V

Please remember about filtering of the power supply connected to Attiny. That's enough 2 capacitors (100nF/10V and 100uF/10V) plugged as near as posiible of Attiny.

I wonder if rudder pedals could be added for the full cockpit experience?
This is a question I've been very curious about. Being a long-time full scale pilot, including being a fighter pilot for 27 years, I always wonder about rudder control. It doesn't seem comfortable, at least to me, to operate the rudders with other than your feet. Very natural, not to mention important to any flight.

greetings! I am adding a comment here to say hello and subscribe to this thread!

I have been working on a similar project for some time using the APM 2.6 mega platform. As it is now end of life, I am looking to move to a nee platform. I'll look in into the links above!

cheers!
