Rudderpedal info.

I think within 2 month or less we have all the electronics designed, and then the rest is already done, so stay tuned for the kick ass F-16 Rudderpedals.

nice wish i was that lucky to find a complete pit
Thanks @Kukki , I did not know either what the purpose is for those tabs.
I did install them just like @Marvin , but I don't expect to use them either.
Possibly, I will remove them, because they interfere with the ACES II. But that might be the case because my ACES II is still not at the proper position and proper angle. So maybe when the ACES II is installed where it should be those tabs are no longer an interference. Then they will stay there  :D

Good point.  I installed them for now as per the instructions but I am not sure at this point if need them or will even use them.

Those are for the twist locks for the fabric behind the seat.

and the other one aft outwards is for the mapbox velcro.

Edit: I have looked on all my real pictures and I cant fint those 2 brackets, and I have them not on my pit (might be that I need free clerence there to be able to pull out my seat) 

Someone might have the golden nuggets here :-)

I've completed the preliminary drawings of how I want the panels to come together:

This is without the screw holes and threading, but it's enough to get an idea of how much it will cost to manufacture. Unfortunately, even in this incomplete state, the estimate is already $300:

The shell is surprisingly the most expensive part. Milling out the inside portion alone is $35, but the real price comes from the holes for the buttons. Apparently Front Panel Designer doesn't take into account whether you've drilled a cavity or not, so a 13x13mm hole in a 3mm-thick panel is $0.72 per hole, but a 13x13mm hole in a 8mm-thick panel suddenly jumps to $2.10 per hole, even though it's the same thickness with the cavity.

Given the high price, I'm starting to wonder if I should go through with it, or stick with the Hispapanel for now until I can reduce costs somehow.
Hey guys,

Progress is a little slow lately as I am waiting for a few metal pieces from Martin as the wrong ones were shipped.  I did complete the left console and aux assembly today.   That was real troublesome compared to the right side.  Everything seem to be twisted slightly causing problems getting the panels to fit.  Probably cause there is a lot of open slots on the left compared to the right, but either way I got it all setup and ready to install in the cockpit.

BTW, anyone know what those two yellow tabs are on the console facing the tub side are for?
