Window heat panel 85% complete. Quite a challengevdue to the amount of Korrys and the tight space.

Still have problem with my PSU for backlight.
4-5 panels should not draw over 20Amps which is my PSU max.

My custom PCB still rocks. But tricky to solder, need a new solder machine. Fried a Teensy accidently.

You sure have,  I am now going to have to start asking you for help.  This stuff that you have going on is utterly amazing now.  Nicely done I would say.  those panels look amazing.

Overhead comes more alive by each day. Hehe
Problems right now: 5v PSU backlight (will add another PSU)
Can only connect two teensy on each USB output (will try couple of new pci-e usb hubs)

Full throttle!

Rerouting everything so it will have two db25 connector at the front instead of building in everything over the polyclutches, it was such a mess that way. Now i will build all components at the front of the throttle instead on a board.

Amp meter purchased!

24V Korrys + Overhead lamp (24v) with Light Test On = 2.95 Amp and my Power Source has Max limit of 3Amps so i guess its time for my second one! =)

5V backlight is only 4.7amps at the moment, more than 15amps to go.

I can really recommend an amp meter with "clamp" that you dont need to brake the circuit. Really nice and effective to use.

back after a month of doing nothing to my sim.

solder two cables and connect to my teensy that handles the throttle which now gives me :

"Teensy did not respond to a USB-based request to enter program mode.
Please press the PROGRAM MODE BUTTON on your Teensy to upload your sketch."
I measured the Volts on it and it is alive and gives me a signal when connect but nothing in my Device Manager.
The cable works becuase i tested it on another teensy.

Nothing changed since last time except two tiny cables and the USB/Windows/Teensy hell begins...

Two hours of frustration, see you in a month...

And now it works again after 20 restarts and Auto-mode on the teensy loader...

This makes me crazy...

I need to find a stable USB setup fast...

Ok, some info that can help others.
If i plug my teensy into my USB-hub i have NO trouble uploading.

Hope that PCIe USB Hubs with powered hubs will be the ultimate solution for all trouble...

Autothrottle is back online after like 2-3 years. :)
This will be my final setup.

Problem is, i only have 5 pins for
Trim wheel motors
Speedbrake servo
Trim indicator

I might go multiplex instead of adding another teensy.
