Hello again Gents!

Today I did some more wiring on the ADI.
Its now ready for testing, all wired.

First test was the the installation of the 2 boards for pitch and roll, drivers installed ok, no failure.

Second test was the internal light of the ADI, I was looking forward for that, cause my ADI is with inbuild NVIS Light, and it looks cool, even i daylight :-)

Third test will be later, to see if everything works

Nevertheless it looks reeeeeaaaal soft and sweet  :thumbsup:

Hello again!

I Have been working a bit more on the ADI, and tested it for the first time.
All flags works as suppose to in the test tool, the ball pitch and roll OK and the commandbars also work :-)

So now its time to start SimLinkUp, set the right Com ports and the go for a test flight  :thumbsup:

Note there is still some fine tuning to be done and some small issues, but over all its a pleasure to see my investment work in BMS.

Special THANKS to @henkie, @Nigel and @lightning, without those Guru´s this would never have been realised  :vprules:

Very nicely done movie   :thumbsup:
I am pretty sure that you notice the small position "jump" at approx 30 degrees movement, in the pitch and roll movement. In the ADI movement it is not that disturbing as you most of the time are *not* looking at the ADI while flying in your pit.   8)

This small "jump" is also present in the prototype of the altimeter. Here the "jump" causes an altitude change of approx 60 feet, and this occurs 6 times per 10000 feet.   ::)

I have had already many evenings of headaches to find the root cause (and a solution), but although I exactly *know* when the jump happens (after a lot of testing), I do not (yet) have a solution for it.  :-\

But this ADI movie clip is great, I am not able to make such nice movies  :notes:

Super Cool Henkie, and yes I saw that small jump, and hope we crack it some day.

Another thing we need to work on is so that the command bars are total out of sight when not activated.
they should not be visible at all.  I talked with dave and he said something about a resistor there need to be changed.

But lets talk about thal later on.

Im very happy to see my ADI spin :-)

Gents im back :-)

Tonight I have made the connector and wireing harnes for the real FFI, and prepared the test board for tonights first test.
After an hour or so I got it up and running.

Betainnovation and USIM software still have some problems in Win 10 and the 64bit BMS exe, so the test was dont in the BMS 32bit exe, and all went super good.

I got to understand the stepper SW a bit more.

Here is a viseo and some pictures on the test bench  :thumbsup:

Looking great Kukki, one request, maybe you can set the unit next to a monitor so the BMS or YAME graphics are visible. Then we can get a look at how it is tracking.
So great to see these things come to life. It's a historic day!
