Work continues...

Only thing left is speedbrake clutch motor and pot,
Parking brake. The rest is wired up.

The teensy joystick libbis a bless to work with. This whole unit except flaps is setup as a joystick.

Kurt,

How much free travel do you get at the throttle handle with those clutches?  I was getting approx 10- 12mm where the -800 has a limit of 2mm.
Im using the same clutches.  I recently got new planetary drive motors with 0 degree backlash and smaller sprockets at the motor end, yet to assemble. 
Just curious about your travel

The way I have built my pedestal makes it hard to get to the drives so im putting it off ;)

Hi mick!

I have about 4mm of travel of my throttles.
My problem is how to get the brackets (like your) around the motors and clutch setup. If i have a real good setup i can tighten the chain and get less movement.

I had to drill a bigger hole of 6mm in the clutches aswell to get rid of the coupler i had before to make it tight so i can put the pedestal over it.

Let me know how it works with you new engines.

This is setup 1.0. If i find anything better i will change but it works really well now. The autothrottle is in really good sync aswell.

Work continues om the throttle.

Using db connectors. Great when getting the hang of the soldering.

Trim/speedbrake and parkingbrake left. Parkingbrake will be mounted to a fat switch. The speedbrake is more work.

Oh, i need a chain and motor for the trimwheels aswell, but atleast no clutch there.

Hi Anders!

I use Teensy microcontroller with the Zibo 737 aircraft manipulating  There is a lib called FlightControls that i use aswell.

Using ZHSI for all the 2D panels.

Db9 connector will be my main setup. Wire all hardware cables to one connector, then the other connector to the teensy and other modules. This way i can easy rebuild/repair the circuit logic.

Feelin proud compared to when i asked Rob about ”Grounds” and hooked up my first crappy MCP version 1.

This looks pretty clean. Next level is circuitboards but i wont go that route now.

Kurt - great job so far. May also suggest cable raceways to keep your wire management under control. I use Panduit.

Cable management! Db9 preparing!!!

I have found out that cockpitbuilding requires around 1-2 beers / hour.

Man, this hobby is great! I have to remember that i wanted to sell 1 month ago... hehe

I guess when it comes to aviation, the only two times when bottom’s up is okay are in aerobatics and sim building! Both wild hobbies in their own right!
Nice job, Peter! Great progress!

LOL trie that! Hope your ERJ is coming along well. :)

Found an old PC with VGA...
Might be a possible ZHSI dedicated computer, but i still like to hve everything in one pc as these app demand very little resources.
This PC is totally overkill for this but its good that it comes in use.

Which MIP parts are you using? I'd like to use the CPFlight but for 3000, that's a lot of money.

I reeeealy recommend Simparts.de its in europe but they buy real 737 and convert. Everything is pure quality and all my OEM fits and its cheap! My MIP frame and all panels (high quality) only cost my 400 Euro.

Will buy the bezels and other stuff from them as my progress goes on.

Dang their full frame is like 1900 USD. Did you make your frame out of MDF or did you buy all from them? it looks like good stuff.
