if the wires are connected to the centre and one outer terminal on the pot will that not only mean the button only skips from 50% to 100% or 0-50 if the channel is reversed?

If the stick is in the middle yes but if you put the stick to one and and the switch connects it to the other end you should get full movement.

Yep,it is easier to move the stick to the full down position,and operate the button from there,as there is no ratchet to keep the stick in the middle. :)

Finished Bruces controller this morning.
Looks more like a Borg controller,I think!! :o

Image

I have all the bits to finish Bruce,but am waiting for my new soldering iron to arrive (from China),as I am fed up of using my "?2.99 special" from the local pound shop.
It has been "en-route" since 31st Jan. I presume that customs has intercepted it. :(
Hopefully it wont be too much longer.
Cheers Jim

Using my new soldering iron,I have finished wiring up Bruce...

Image

I have also attached the 0.5mm Titanium plate onto the lifter frame...

The only thing I have to do now is sort out the self righting "fin".
