Its for the efis range mode. They have 7 modes, and i use teensy 3.2 that has not enough inputs if connecting one by one on the range.

Don't ever let me catch you doing that rubbish again!  ;) ;D

The Teensy is so powerful you could MUX your entire MIP, AP, and Radios on one 3.2 Teensy!!!

Use these instead, Very handy and cheap!! I use them both and they work perfect.

Haha NOW i know what was on your custom PCB board in your latest video!
Will probably contact you and order some of those when my teensys run out!

Cool, thanks Rob!

Second motor installed!

Thought it would take 15 min, it took 2h before everything was mounted.

Still need ti install the cable. But not tonight! :)

Man, the TQ has been so much fun so far!!!!

Not to mess you up Kurt but did you measure the width from side to side with those motors to make sure they will fit within a pedestal.  The NG pedestal gets more narrow at the bottom so even though 3 bays wide it is tighter at floor level.  If using a 2 bay gets even tighter.

Your right, i am aware of the problem after i bought the motors. Sadly there is nothing i can do about it except build my own square radiobay. If just build as a box the motors will fit

In some areas i have to compromise :(

No worries

This hobby is all about compromises.  You could still build the box to fit but make the very back end few inches have the bottom profile and nobody would ever know the wiser.  That is one of the benefits to building some things yourself.

15 min turned out to be 2hours again :)

Had to disassembly the fairings to be able to get the cable throught the front opening.

Now is left to figure out a good setup for my gears and pots.

Question to all with real TQ, do you use existing cables for 5v backlight? Thinking of cutting them and make my own system...

My new "old" 600 dollar joystick!
Seller had it setup in a sim, will save me hours and loads of cash. This is pretty much just to setup and start fly! Hehe

The trip selector was busted in the shipping but will replace it with a cover.

It may be the camera but that looks really bright.  Are you using 5 vdc?   Dont use higher than that or you will burn it up.

These bulbs (type 6832) are rated for 100,000 hours of life, most of the ones i have repaired are usually a dry solder joint, not the bulb itself.

Camera issues, 5V it is. But i agree, thought it should be more "red". Looks pretty yellow without camera aswell.

I use my pc psu 5v cables.

By the way. All the korry switches are smooth as kittens except one.

Do you think it is a good idea to put just a tiny drop of oil in the switch?
And should i do that to all switches? (That is toggle)

Definitely would not use oil on the switches!

Most of the toggle switches will be sealed anyway.

You should use a switch cleaner/lubricant designed for the purpose
I use this, you should be able to get something similar over there.

https://www.blackwoods.com.au/part/03065243/crc-2001-switch-cleaner-lube-aero-300gm

With the Korrys, you can just pull the switch head straight out and clean it up.  A little dry silicone lubricant on the sides of this part works well.

Thanks for the tip mick!

Aaaahhh the great feeling of putting in 3 solid hours of work on the throttle quadrant and end up in a worse state than when you started!
Sometimes i hate this hobby! :(
