Tulkas,

How does the throttle is rotating?
On what kind of axle, bearing etc.

The axis is just a bolt that pass through the opening of the throttle arm. No bearings.

The bolt is smooth and the throttle rotates on it i guess.
don't you have tiny movements between the hole and bolt?

Not really. The bolt provided by Rabbit is tight enough so when the friction wheel and the separation plate are on place and pressing the whole thing feels pretty solid.

Thank you for your nice words guys!

Keep the work on the throttle. First a change the pot in the cougar for this one:

http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/HRS100SSAB090/480-3281-ND/1956411?wt.z_cat_cid=Dxn_US_US2011_Catlinkhttp://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/HRS100SSAB090/480-3281-ND/1956411?wt.z_cat_cid=Dxn_US_US2011_Catlink

Is a 90 degrees HALL pot. The 90 degrees is a nice fitting for the range of movement of the throttle.

Then just an easy soldering job:

Testing that everything works:

Then is time to build the linkage from the throttle to the pot. Not having any RC shop at hand I just when to ebay and found cheap chinese parts, just a servo attachment and some ball joints for a M4 rod:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/390977627811?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281099916425?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I just made some metal parts on my own. Target is to get the same radius of turn from the pot to the ball joint as it is from the pivoting point of the throttle arm to its ball joint and also that the throttle and pot arms move parallel:

Next thing is to actually take a test flight, hopefully in the weekend.

Nice job Tulkas! Do you plan to set the cut-off, idle, milspeed, etc? It's what I'm planning so I will bookmark this!

What do you mean? Physically they are set by the gates at the throttle rail and in the simulator you set them up very easily in Falcon BMS configuration.
