Long story short - I have a broken Saitek throttle quadrant and I don't want to buy another one. I want to connect its varistors to SimVim controller analog inputs. Will it work, and is it worth it?

The problem with the quadrant was that the contacts started to bounce, so I disassembled it to clean them. Unfoturnately, badly soldered contacts simply came off, and despite all my efforts I was unable to figure out which goes to which and how to make them work again.

Привет Алексей,

Уточните, в чем проблема? В SimVim вы можете использовать любой потенциометер от 1k до 50 k.

Спасибо за ответ! Я только учусь работе с самодельной электроникой, поэтому предположил, что могут быть какие-то неочевидные для меня загвоздки. Заказываю Arduino Mega.
