THIRD PAGE !!!!
Ok i deserve it ! .... but now updating my thread with a GREAT NEW !!! (at least for me !!!)
After some months i decided to finish the project of interfacing the real TQS .....
i had several troubles in the past months that were leading me to the conclusion that it was
almost impossible ... or TOO HARD for me ....
I were experiencing troubles with the trimming of the Axis (MR and AE) and there was no chance to have a good
signal on the Radar Cursor ...
Then i decided to begin again .....
i found a 34 pin breakout board and cutted the CRAPPY connections i made on a flat 34 pin
What YOU NEED:
Of course a Real F-16 TQS
like this one:
then you need
Jay's Proto Board
a 34 Pin breakout pcb
and the Electronic board that you'll have to gut out from your Courgar's Throttle !
After many attempts and hours passed with a small screwdriver and a multimeter
i finally was able to obtain the desider value from the AE, MR and RC ..... so i hooked all together
and fired for first HOTAS CCP, then Foxy and last but not least Falcon
I also added a pot for the throttle following Kukki's Idea (Thanks MATE !!!) unfortunately i wasn't able
to install the Hall Sensor due to the angle's limitation (90? max)
First result was GOOD for MR and AE .... but i was experiencing a strange behaviour with the RC ....
the Y axis was running quite well .... the X axis was giving a 45? movement instead an orizzontal one ...
OH DAMN ..... Bad Transducers
just a quick check on the 34 pin breackout board and i realized that i was mixing up the SIGNAL with the VIN
quick change .., recalibration and
WOW !!! running SMOOTH and FINALLY STRAIGHT !!!!!
then i decided to mount the throttle in the trainer .... (DAMN GUYS .... fixing the base to the ribs is really a painfull job !!!! really tight space to move tools ..... and lot of time to make a good job !) I think that without a REAL TRAINER (with the right dimensions and predrilled holes) aligning the throttle with the guide rail should be very time consuming and i very suggest to ask help from some friend when you do it !!!! doing it alone it could be impossible !
but finally here's the result ! (
i can say i'm an HAPPY OWNER of an "INTEGRATED" REAL F-16 TQS
