I am having a really hard time trying to find a 100mm 100k Linear Slide Potentiometer, which will be used as a throttle lever for my yoke panel of my Cessna 182.
I am building a yoke panel or yoke strip panel, that integrates an avionics switch panel, flight yoke AND throttle quadrant! using Buttons, LEDs, Engine Start Switch, throttle levers etc, i've designed it from scratch, all artwork is designed by myself, electronics are simple but effective.....apart from one problem?........the throttle quadrant!
All i need is 3 x 100k 100mm Linear (Analog) Slider Potentiometers to complete the project (for my throttle quadrant), but im finding it impossible to find one, and preferable to be a UK supplier.....
Does anyone out there know where i can find a suitable potentiometer?
Its easy to grab a 60mm version, but thinking this may be a problem as the throttle will be VERY sensitive to the simplest touch of the lever, maybe it will do for now but would like the 100mm version (if i can find a supplier).
So can anyone help?
PS. If anyone would like to have a look at my panel, as i took some photos of the process, then let me know and i will try and make a website and upload the pictures, also if anyones interested in designing something like this then your more than welcome to use my designs as i can give you the templates that i made (or you can modify them on a draw program which is free to download) anyway, message me or let me know on here if interested.
Thanks fellow builders.
