Sensors & Electronics
Three Hall-Effect sensors are used in combination with two neodymium rare-earth magnets. The same sensors are used on sports car throttles or active suspension and offer a resolution much higher than that achievable from a resistance or optical solution.
The signal is combined with that from the laser mouse sensor as a single USB signal, recognisable to the PC as a mouse and 4-axis joystick. This means interfacing software with the Wing is straightforward without proprietary software. Control of UAVs is possible through readily available Ground Control Station (GCS) software and telemetry modules.
