Wiring 2 pots together? Answered
Ok, so I am in the hobby of hobby grade rc. I am currently working on modding a ps2 racing wheel and foot pedals to work with a spare 2.4ghz remote I have for my cars. I got the steering wired up fine and it works good. Now for the somewhat tricky part. The foot pedals each have a potentiometer in them. They share ground and power, and have separate signal outputs. I have the right one wired in for the throttle just fine. On my micro car it was easy enough, just switch the throttle reverse switch and push the pedal and it goes in reverse. But most escs wont calibrate to that. How would I go about wiring them together? essentially I want to turn 2 pots into one big pot. So when I push the right one down it sends the signal for forward. When I take off the right one and push the left one down, it signals reverse. I could bring my micro controller into the mix, but I really dont want to for something that seems so simple. Plus it is on a serb right now.
