I remember Dave Scott commenting on fatigue in the arm after an hour of flying his SSC, so it might depend on what you are flying with,, he did appreciate mounting his armrest into his mock testbed.

I'll let you know this fall when I interface my DS built SSC.

Actually, last year's I/ITSEC show the feedback I got from several actual pilots was that the arm rest was important for simulators.

The comment was made while testing my SSC at the show.

lol Jody. I don't have your arm :o you should see me and I'm all skinny with a arm you could make two turn around with only one of your big canuck hand ...

but it's true; I want it mainly because it's a nice part :)


RD,

Ha ha ha..  Good point..  I think Jay is right, might be different under G..  However at our G level, the arm rest is pretty much useless..  But I think the main issue, is we want it to look authentic.   :wink:

Mike/Marv,

Ok, not only do I stand corrected!!!  But I guess it helps my big macho ego as well!!  8)   I guess hitting the gym for the last 3 years might be the reason why it does not bother me..  :twisted:

After all this debating, I still want one!!  :lol:

Left console
« Reply #215 on: September 27, 2005, 02:40:37 AM »
HI RD,

I made the bend from 5 degrees in the leftside panel between the ELEC and the FUEL pumps panel.
And after the Fuel pumps it stops.

How did you get the curve in the first rib of the rightside, your own design, or real?

Cheers,

Raymond

Ray,

The problem of the first rib comes from the fact that I don't use real ribs and no sidewall and no outer structure.
In my setup, there would be a gap between the end of the aux console and the flat right console, in the real pit, that where the sidewall meets the aux console and hides the gap between the aux and the rest of the structure.


The red lines indicate where the panels will be and you can see marked by the arrow the gap I'm talking about.

So I will make that small flat plane go through the first rib and the wall section below will be made in wood so I can completely open it if necessary and the upper section linking the outer side of the aux to the outer side of the first rib will probably made out of aluminium.


So The curve on the first rib it the same as the curve on the aux panel, at least projected - it's no real curve at all.

I got that and the left side console a few years ago.  Yes, it is not a Block 50.

If anyone knows where I can get a left Aux Console (the one that holds the landing gear panel), I would be interested!

I actually thought Red Dog might need to see how the two consoles interface.  I have the plastic interior panel, too.  That hides the ribs under the right Aux panel and blends the side and Aux consoles together.
