What wasn't apparent - before physically controlling the motor with two throttle pots - was user confusion
That possibility should have been apparent after reply #1, and is a sign of poor user interface design.

A physical toggle switch is much more obvious for direction control, with the knob itself giving feedback on the actual direction chosen.

Not in the industry this gadget is used in.

I'll take your word for that. Even though it's at odds with your comment that there actually "was user confusion".

Maybe you have to say that potX is not a candidate to take control of the motor unless its value was 0 at the time the other pot released control of the motor.

The user would then be auto trained to develop the reflex action of releasing a pot back to zero if it appeared to have no effect.
