Please could you show the connections you make with the potentiometer to the board and then how do you interface it all?
On flight simulator I only read the value -1 and sometimes I shoot the value 270 but nothing works and I don't understand why, can you help me?

The leo bodnar board is plug and play. Your flight sim should recognise it as a joystick. Then just find the board in your flight sim joystick drop down and assign axis.

Hi, it was a while back but good question. Do you have the leo bodnar bu0836 board? My pots had 2 pins one end and 1 pin the other end. I'm afraid I can't remember which pin was what but I wired the pots and then plugged them in to the board and connected the board to the pc. I used the pc joystick and mouse program to see if I had wired it correctly, using trial and error I'm afraid. However, the single pin output goes top GROUND (top of the 3 analogue pins, ie the one at the edge of the board) then the 2 pins on the other end of the pot go in the pins vertically below that, (input and 5v). If your pot is different you'll have to trial and error. Find the ground and go from there.
You need an analogue input, reads like you're wiring to digital, which only reads the extremities, 1 and zero, or 1 and 270. Sorry, I hope this makes sense.
