You know Strale...  I have always said that you are crazy for spending all that money and time trying to build a 100% real cockpit.  But I can really see that your dedication and money has paid off!

Great work
Jody


 :D Thanks Jody !

And The Big Guys at I/ITSEC count us as just small fries.
I gotta strange feeling that Viper Pit is one org. that will soon have the respect of of alot of so called BIG FRIES.
Nice stuff Davide, and Jay and Mike too.
I love the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Ferrari F1 of fighter jets.

I love the Viper - a perfect melding of man and machine.

Thanks Mate,
i think the same .... in any case .. just to make some clearification ...
All what You saw about my RWR couldn't HAPPEN without Mike, Jay and Leo !!!
Jay is giving me some help to check that my RWR is working fine ... but ... you know .... i'm a Dumb in electronics ..... and I posted those pictures only why Jay asked me to make a report on my thread ... (two chances ... or Jay is too Shy !! eh eh eh ... or he's working really hard that he has not time to show HIS progress !)
Mike and Jay worked hard on the indicator ..... develloping tests boards .. and studying How the hell is done that thing ..... Leo gave support with his Electronflux ..... now there are a couple of issues that have to be solved ... and then i think that there will be the need of someone that can "write" a software from "electronflux" to the Indicator .....

Hey Jay .... if something is wrong ... please write on me !

In any case ... my thinking is that I'm one of those lucky bastard having a real RWR ..... and DAMN ... i want see it WORKING ... LOL !

Cheers You all !

Did you not get my email reply back?  

Anyways, you need to use the second 5v supply and you CANNOT hook the ground of this one to the other grounds.  Supply the grn and 5v to the pins like I described.  You cannot use the 5v supply you are already using.

Actually that part is already done. The F4IM interface software can currently drive the EFlux for the RWR from most flavors of Falcon. Jay posted a youtube video of his RWR in action and I have one posted here using your standard garden variety oscilloscope.

Mine is an older test video:

Jay's (you'll need to tilt your head 45 deg CW to view it  :P)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKg11SHZZ5A

Still some glitches to iron out, but we'll eventually get there. Anyone wanna sell me a used IP-1310/ALR cheap? Didn't think so... :cry:

Strale,

Just wanted to let you know that your thread is one of the few I check at a daily basis. Completely flabbergasted by what you're doing - I consider myself a total hero when I get a stepper motor running on a IOCards interface, so what you're doing is godlike to me ;)

Good work, I'm keeping an eye on you  8)
Life is what you make of it.

Thanks AiRdAncE ......
your words are really motivating .....
You know ... i'm not Shy .. but have to admit that my ONLY luck was to hold good relations with lots of people... and this helped me in founding all the parts i need .....
Heroes are people like the Two MIkes ... Jay, Sharknoir, and all the other guys MAKING something that can be touched for the community ! ....
I can only take pictures and follow instructions on how to do things .....
this is the Truth ! ......
but of course I'm really proud of what i have and the info i can share within the community !

Thanks again

ACES II WORKS
« Reply #207 on: March 25, 2007, 03:35:20 PM »
Ok Guys and Gals (hmmmm any gals out there ?? eh eh eh)

I finally begun to make some works on the beautifull Kit "he-who-must-not-be-named" provided me (well ... won on Ebay .... LOL)
I had to make some modifications to the kit due the fact that it seems i got the 3rd generation seat instead the 4th ...


First modification was on the left side of the seat.
I placed some putty to mask the holes that are not present in the real Seat. I also decided to mask the engraved "ACES II" as you can see.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250228.jpg
Strale Project


Then I worked on some details on the right side of the SEAT:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250224.jpg
Strale Project


Adding the hose holder and the quick disconnect support, the lower seat rest and the upper metal piece that goes under first wheel

Strale Project


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250226.jpg
Strale Project



I've been also forced to modify the left side to allow the mounting of a real arming lever.
The Kit came with these two parts

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/large_1.jpg
Strale Project


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/large.jpg
Strale Project


and mounted the result was this and as you can see the arming lever doesn't lay perfectly on the seat's ear !

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/72428607.jpg
Strale Project



Here my modified parts.
The Hole of the Arming Handle was modified making it nearer the seat's ear.
Finding the solution to have the lever armed with a spring and pivoting was really amazing ! some recessions were made to accomodate a small momentary pushbutton.

Also some additional sanding was made on the ears

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250222.jpg

Here a detail of the "moved ahead" mounting hole for the arming lever

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250223.jpg

Pushbutton Mounted !

Detail of the Spring Holder. Who KNOWS what's that ???
The ingegnery is very simple and works like a charm !

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250216.jpg

Here the picture of the arming handle with the custom built Rod and the very hard spring !

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250230.jpg

L@@K NOW the Handle LAYS perfectly on the Ear !!!! I was very please by my unknown skills !!! eh eh eh

Sorry for the blurry image ! I was too near !

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250232.jpg
Strale Project


To mount the arming handle were used some special screws used in fornitures
i don't know how they're called in english so here what i'm talking about.
I still need to "cut" a little bit the screw to allow a Tighten condition

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v67/Strale/P3250229.jpg

another shot from above

And this is all for now !
Unfortunately i don't have too much time to dedicate at the building .. so as usual i'm SLOW !

Cheers ALL
