    Rotary potentiometer For Quik wing Trim

    Hi,

    I'm hoping that one of the forum members, know the of the Rotary Potentiometer on the Wing Trim. I have sourced many with a shorter shaft, though none with the right length to engage in the Spindle.

    Thanks

    Thanks, spoke to RS, great customer support. They don't do the longer stem. If I find it, I'll post a link.

    What length does it need to be ?
    The three most useless things in aviation:
    • The air above you.
    • The runway behind you.
    • The fuel in the bowser.


    Rule #1: Always tie-down your aircraft to the largest heaviest object available. The planet Earth meets these requirements and is readily available in all locations.
    Rule #2: The great thing about twin engined aircraft is, if one engine fails, the other engine always has just enough power to get you to the scene of the crash.
    Rule #3: You can never have too much fuel in an aircraft. Unless it's on fire.

    Semper specto in clara parte vitae.

    Jackson Brothers H344. You'll probably find it in the bay for about 7. Standard pot shaft extender.
    Underpaid but overhead.

    Thanks for the response, the Potentiometer is a Std part as supplied by RS components. https://uk.rs-online.com/web/. A part no can be provided if reqd.


    P&M Manton's solution, for this design is poor in my opinion. Please see attached photo's Spindle Slots.jpgSpindle.jpg

    The potentiometer is provided with a Slot to drive it, surely the Spindle could have been lengthened and matched to join the potentiometer, rather than the botch job of glueing in a piece of metal to it.
