I’ve played a few different paragliding games and always found the problem of what controls you use. Mouse and Keyboard aren’t great as paraglider flying is very analog. It’s kind of similar to a flight simulatior or car racing game, you need a joystick or racing wheel to have a great experience playing.
So, I decided to design and make my own. I had various concepts but ended up going for sliding potentiometer because they are cheap, compact and readily available.”
