I have a Signet Masthead wind
instrument set that the wind
direction potentiometer has gone bad on. I was able to get another used instrument set and it was bad too. So I decided to tear it down(the potentiometer for wind direction). Turns out it was oil
dampened and the oil
got in into the potentiometer and thoroughly contaminated it. So I looked up the part on Signets site and they want $275 for it. Now we have whole Signet instrument set in the cockpit
and I’m also using OpenPlotter on a Raspberry Pi for navigation
I seriously thought of just dumping the whole instrument set and moving to a OpenPlotter solution, but before I do, I wanted to check and see if anybody has found a cheaper reliable solution for the signet wind direction pot? Attached is a picture of the Pot.
