looks super !  Are you going to add a solenoid ? And if your construction can handle it, you might add a more haevy spring. Just like the spider, it moves with many forse up and down.

@JJ
I have one here (Dunk´s Handle Kit) but after more then 4 or 5 emails I did not get any Information how to assemble all those parts togehter (electric components) and some parts also would need work I could not do here at home so I decided to to the Handle just with normal magnetic pads. Got a link to some Details but they all used parts I coud not find in my box so I gave up. You can see my soloution at the Pictures. Not like real but it works.

With the Spider I would use it but the biggest Problem is that my Spider is made of wood and it would not live quite long with this tortoure. Maybe I find a payable of metal then I can do this, but until that it will stay just decoration.

But today (or right in this Moment) I finished teh AUDIO 1 Panel  :yihaw:

I am still waiting for my delivery from Mike and so I started to make the Fittings for the TWA and TWP Panels. And I also started to make the ejection handle useable for my seat  :beer2:

It took me a lot of time and much more  :grumbl: and  :brickwall: but for now the ejection handle is working. There where a lot of good ideas around and I hope my soloution is also one that might be useful for others. It took me some time to figure out all the sizes and other stuff but at least it is working.. and it Needs really some power to pull the handle  :clap:
