Prototype of the throttle.
The pinky lever is the version of @Rabbit
, which I bought from @henkie
. The throttle arm is 3D printed by @chnil71
It's just a tryout with my spare throttle to see if and how we'll make it work.
The potmeter isn't attached but there's a hole drilled into the side so the wire can go through into the original base. When we make the final version I will use my main throttle that has a hall sensor instead.
We've attached a small plastic piece on top to hold the pinky lever mechanism in place. Normally it works fine as it came, but the possible upward motion needed for the AB detent was annoying without a rail guide and I kept lifting unintentionally when moving forward & backwards. So for now the extra piece makes it unable to move upwards without depressing the pinky lever.
To our surprise the original wiring of the throttle was long enough to go through the arm and to reattach to the original PCB.
I'll need to add some counterweight on the bottom because without a rail guide the heavy metal pinky lever and the throttle itself way too much so when leaving it forward at mil power, it drops into full AB by gravity.
The side part is bolted onto it but can be moved up or down. Depending on how my final left console will be built, we can still decide how low/high the base will be so we can adjust later on. Once the final turn circle is known, we can attempt to make a draft of a rail guide too and attach my correct throttle with MLU comm switch & cursor spider
