Control Surface Differential

Control surface attuned...
Computer radios make this a cinch.

Life is a little more complex for some of us with BC radios (before computer).

Never could find my trig-table let alone remember how to use it. An analog computer is much less complex, no math mistakes to deal with, more fun to build and play with than a book of tables.

Scrap foam, stickpins for pivots and protractor required to build analog computer
I suggest keep linear measuring units the same (such as inches red tic marks), wheels seperated 10 inches

Output Equals Input

-4 es –5 output result for an initial input set to 45
