I took a risk when I purchased this wheel kit. There was only one review, one-star, where the person said their controller arrived broken. I assumed I could return the item immediately if I had the same problem. Naturally, I couldn't get it to work. I opened the throttle to see if I could find a loose wire or another problem. I figured these throttles were potentiometers, but I discovered a Hall-effect sensor.
I thought they were potentiometers

I searched for instructions since my kit didn't include any paperwork and the labels were in Chinese. The controller should recognize a potentiometer, so I grabbed one with wires and confirmed that. I also found I could reverse the motor direction without any rewiring. Once I confirmed the controller wasn't the problem, I rechecked the throttle, and the wiring wasn't compatible. Oh well, I didn't like the twist style anyway.
