Re: How does the Joystick Pad works?

Does anyone know how real spacecraft are controlled/maneuvered? could be useful in this thread.

Re: How does the Joystick Pad works?

One example: for manual control Apollo capsules used Rotational Hand Controllers (RHC) and also Translational Hand Controllers (TCH) for yaw, pitch and roll control. The former is a grip that looks like an aircraft joystick, which was pushed forward and back for pitch, left and right for Roll, and twisted for Yaw. The second is a T-shaped handle whose functionality is a little tougher to explain, but you can see both in this PDF. Do an image search of both terms to see what those looked like.
