I want to make a flight control, like a yoke, with a very smooth travel, but with some kind of additive resistance .
I know a quadratic encoder is just a stepper motor that acts like a generator. Can power be added to the stepper motor to create resistance? Or would i have to add another motor to the same axis to do this?
