I tried searching through these forums and elsewhere but I couldn’t find the information I needed. I am trying to make an RC plane transmitter and I would like the throttle joystick on the controller to act how a normal RC plane transmitter does: the X axis snaps back to center and the Y axis does not self center (for example, if you push it all the way up, it will not go back down unless you manually pull it back).
My question is are what specific joysticks/dual axis potentiometer s can I buy that perform this way? Or, which ones can I alter to act the way I described above?
A couple of things:
-This is meant to be thumb stick size only (no plane simulator style joysticks please)
-I know I can achieve the same function with a normal gamepad joystick and measuring whether the throttle increases, decreases or remains the same but I would prefer not to do that.
-Joysticks with a single centering spring won’t work. If I remove that, then both axes will “stick” and I only want one axis to do that (unless I am completely wrong about this in which case please correct me)
-I would prefer specific models that i can actually go find and purchase. During my scouring, several people mentioned it was possible to alter a joystick or that they existed already but provided no link or model and obviously I couldn’t find them
-I also know I can use an old RC transmitter but I don’t have one lying around and I would prefer to not have to take one apart or try to fit my setup in its case
