hey all ,
i have been toying with the idea of wiring a joystick to my trolling motor via foot pedal. now this is just a plausibility post and yes i have seen sodak stick i like it but i want something different. I have also tried a sexy stick which didn't work very well because there isn't enough resistance on the electric foot pedal and it flops around. I also am aware of and have co-pilot and while it works fine, i like the idea of having something anybody can use to drive vs just 2 people with the remotes.
obviously left and right would be left and right, was hoping for a POT on the handle for speed but i can't find one that isn't return to center so i was just going to make forward the speed control. and then button on top for on /off
wiring for pedal is as follows
i have a fairly good understanding of how these things should work but if anybody has a deeper knowledge and can see flaws or issues with this please let me know
