Transmitter Conversion - Single Stick

Post your favorite modeling 'tips' and 'tricks'

Hi Guys,
I just completed an interesting conversion on my transmitter. I modified an old single stick knob to accept the Multiplex pots and installed it on my radio. It took a lot of small machining to get it to work. Some of you may remember the old single stick aircraft radios. The knob control can be used for rudder, or bow thrusters. I am working on a research type sub and this could be used for full 3-axis control. Roll, pitch, and turn on the same stick.
