Really cool progress done! My throttle is working  :cheerleader:

Thanks to everyone for the help! It's more than my expectation.

I have some problem with my FCC3... The straingage of the X axis are broken. Don't know if I get it secondhand like that or if I broke them... I'm in contact with Arend to solve this anyway.  :thumbsup: Only miss the throttle to be flyable.

Soon I hope!

Maybe more news before the end of my holidays?  :whistle:

PS: To those who are using your throttle that way, did you set the AB when you it the bump (100%?) or just where the handle touching the top of the bump? Probably not make a very big difference but I was wondering...

@wralex, I set full mil throttle just a little bit past the bump. When I set it at the bump I can hear it trying to go into AB.

Well, it's the end of the holidays  :( Quite a quiet one, but I made some stuff on the sim.

I make a homemade bracket to install the FDR on the seat. Consisting of 2 angles of 2.5cm x 2.5cm that I cut and adapted. The result suits me. So FDR installed. Check!

I painted the 7 "lamp housing" that I bought from Viper44 printed in 3D. I started the finishing long time ago but... we all have things that we are less interested in and that drags on for long...  Anyway, it's done, painted and installed. Lack the LEDs to put in.
My choice will be this in "warm": http://www.ebay.com/itm/3W-6W-G4-AC-DC12V-COB-LED-Light-Bulb-Warm-White-Cool-White-Lamp-Bulb-1-6-10PCS/381637188821?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=650722024833&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

I disassembled the spider to finalize and paint. Check!

Small fussy on the details according to my wife... I made pins for the arming lever and handle release. A rod of 0.250 "with a washer that I drill to 0.250". Glued with charged epoxy adhesive. Just install a nice remove before flight 3x24 orange streamer and voila. I love the look it gives when I do not use the cockpit.  :-[

My FFC3 is arrived to Arend, it should be back soon. I can not wait to fly with it.

I start to figure how I will install viperpanel instruments... I can not figure out how I will proceed... if there are any who have photos or suggestions, I'm in.

The only thing I planned to do that I did not have time is my ladder... maybe by the fall who knows  :whocares:

Otherwise new addition, the Edtracker. I had read a lots of good reviews and it was a problem for me not having a tracker. I would consider that it would increase my flying precision... I spent the last 2 days... and I am a little disappointed I must admit. Order is impeccable, fast shipping to Canada also. I took the pro version wireless.

I have installed opentracker and played a lot with the curves. I do not think I found what I like in terms of configuration. I think it is always too fast on the move, inaccurate when you want to click in the Cockpit (drift or shake) and in the long run, it gives :barf: I tried the Kukki config from his thread (thanks mate) and the one of SharkNoir from C6. I do not say that their curves are not good but I do not like the rendering in my cockpit... I do not know if it is the adaptation that must be done or just me that is too capricious. I have to recenter extremely often. Cockpit or Edtracker or Opentracker. The drift I do not talk about it... we look at the right and fix a point. the edtracker slowly returns towards the center... we return the head to the center, and cause drift we look to the left when we should have looked at the center... It's better since I tried to reconfig and I redo the "0" as it should but it happens again randomly.

I stopped flying there an hour and I still feel the effect.

If you have any suggestions, advice, criticism, anything about it, I'm in. I do not understand that the number of users, I am the only one who is disappointed with his purchase. I almost rush to buy 1 projector or 3 screens type 46"  :brickwall: :countingmoney:

I finish with the pictures as usual.  :vprules:
