 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Im looking to incorporate a jog dial interface for my project but Im having a hard time sourcing a sensor.   What i'd love is a linear potentiometer that would have a spring loaded return to center function and; ideally, a center button. 

Sort of like old vhs remotes (i guess i could salvage one of those is i cant find anything else)

any ideas?

You'll find what you need within an RC controller for model aircraft.
