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.

Top, the perfect set up, output is equal to input
Middle, several options
Bottom, mine usually lQQk like this

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

Pointer on right is output >and< side view of control surface
Output Equals Input

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