    hi and im new in this forum sorry if i posted it in the wrong section , but my question is this is it possible to control 2 dc motors using 4 microswitch with common , no , nc contact ( joystick mechanism ) , the forward switch will control the 2 motors forward and the reverse switch will control the 2 motors reverse , and the left switch will only control 1 motor which is the right motor , and the right switch will control the other motor which is the left motor ( just like electric wheelchair ) btw 24v supply , your help is much appreciated thanks. :)

    In an electric circuit sense.....easy.
    Getting the microswitches to activate mechanically I would imagine a nightmare.
    Logic control perhaps.
    Microcontroller ...relatively easy.
    (Just my 2 bob's worth)
