My 100k potentiometer only turns one way what to do

He probably didn't specify that he used a USB controller for the wheel. I went into the project with a Nintendo nunchuck, and I had to get a kit to change it from USB. Otherwise an excellent project!

aramism2 (author)dark_builds2017-08-15

Hi, how did you manage to convert it to USB? I have a Sony Playstation 2 Controller. Can I convert it to USB without using an Adapter?

Bjen Bea (author)2016-03-06

I love to do this... But what do the potesiometer do?

balsuryana (author)Bjen Bea2016-03-06

the funcion of the potensiometer is for turning.

acoşgun (author)2016-03-04

Wow, that's what I call simplicity :) Add some cosmetic enclosure to it and you have some nice gaming station :)

balsuryana (author)acoşgun2016-03-05

yes! better idea. maybe just packing the joystick with box. and paint the steering wheels and the box! And it look nice! :n)

ThomasK19 (author)2016-03-04

Go to a junkdealer and get a steering wheel from an old car. That will not cost a fortune (I guess you'll get one for a bottle of beer). And that will really look cool.

balsuryana (author)ThomasK192016-03-04

yeah. great idea!! :)
