Do you plan to set the cut-off, idle, milspeed, etc?

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.



Yess it's what I'm asking with BMS (I never do that so it's why my question seems to be "idiot"). I know for the guide rail I get it in my pit but my throttle is not connected so I can't tell how it works. I need a new PC before for the pit. My 13years old PC sucks lol.

Well, happy New year to all. I hope everyone had a nice Christmas time and santa, the three wise men (yet to come) or (in my case) julenisse was good to you. I cannot complain, first I could not resist to self-gift these ones, really really nice done RD, thanks for the hard work:

Then my wife came with a super-gift. I have first to say that in November I had my PPL checkride and I was approved so now I am officially a pilot, then for Christmas I got an aerobatic checkout course, to be done in a CAP10. Looks like I am gonna pull some Gs for real!


http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/IMG-20151224-WA0002.jpg

And back to the cockpit, the throttle works!:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1Xj4Mk8ex8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1Xj4Mk8ex8</a>

Then it was time to dress up the console, painting and stickers on the wall:

To make the stripe that holds the manual canopy lever I just used some hardware from a local store:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/20151223_192622.jpg

Then -of course- I could not resist to place all the panels in position, much better stored there than in a box in a locker:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/20151224_012324.jpg

Now, finally this is looking like something:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/20151224_013335.jpg
Tulkas' simulator - progress


I took out all the switches and started to place on the panels to have a better overview of what I am missing:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/20151230_233538.jpg
Tulkas' simulator - progress


After that I recheck all my lists and went all over the internet hunting for switches, pots, rotaries... lots of parcels coming to me next to weeks!

I did some work on the guards:

Now I am starting to be where I wanted with the pit:

And family is leaving from thursday to monday so big chances of big progress if some of the parcels arrive.

Cheers

Looking great Tulkas  :thumbsup:
With family members being out a few days, I am sure you are looking for more progress  ;D

I hope your switches arrive in time ...
I know the feeling  :rambling:

Well, I used the weekend mostly to work on the panels and to add some details.

I got some nice parts from Biohazard, I only had to go to the hardware store and find some screws that matched what I see in pictures:

http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w90/Tulkas_5Js/Cockpit/20160109_144111.jpg

Had to make some metal support:

And the final result is quite convinving, man I love to add attrezzo  to the cockpit  :)

As I said I keep on filling all the panels as a previous step to wiring. Here is how I place the replica (cast) small switch caps like those on the HUD or EXT. LIGHT: panels. First I thin out the switch bat down to 4-4,5mm diameter with the dremel, then I carv a thread M4 on the bat with a die set. I drill the cap with a 3mm and then I only have to screw on the bat. Very solid:

drooooool  :thumbsup:

Did you get real measurements for that DEFOG handle?
Is there a place where I can find a drawing with dimensions?
Just love that DEFOG handle  :clap:    and I still have to make that handle  :notes:

BTW, I reserved 2 input "lines" in my wiring so that (encoded) I can detect 4 "positions".
MIN - 1/3 - 2/3 - MAX ... I could let a fan run at some speeds (for the sound)  :D  :wacko:

Hi Henkie. Those that you see are the dimensions from Biohazard replicas. I just wrote them down fast and dirty to go to the hardware store to find the right screws.

I'd very much recomend to get his replica, very nice casting and great price.

Cheers

I agree 100% , Biohazard's casts are fantastic  :thumbsup:  I have his knob set.
I assumed that you made the metal DEFOG lever yourself. It is metal isn't it?
Or is that DEFOG lever also from Biohazard ???
