Firstly they are big an actual size so no way to do it for a game pad, sorry. Secondly as said before they need a load cell accelorator to give the right amount of output to the controlling processor of the device you are conecting to the computer. Leo Bodnar has these for his BU boards and work great and easy to use. Thirdly, load cells are expensive compared to other kinds of sensors.If you want to use springs for pressure feel, you can have a shorter STRONGER spring with a smaller diameter but longer lenth spring inside it that is not as strong to get 2 different brake pressure feelings, or 3 spings if you want 3 different amounts of pressure, or if you have enough space, one spring infront of the othe will give the same effect.I am trying to come up with a real hydaulic system for high end controls. This will be expencive but if someone wants one it will be available.Love this thread. Keep all the ideas coming its great to read how people think.DD

This would give a 'soft' initial travel and then harden up as the vacuum in the end of the cylinder increases much like normal lever travel. 40mm dia/5 or 10mm stroke cyclinders seem quite cheap and i am guessing i need a largish piston area. I know air is compressible (squidgy lever if the vauum is insufficient) but i think this might be 'better' than mechanical springs.
