Linked Brakes
« on: September 05, 2018, 07:47:10 AM »
Hi People,

A quick question here. I know most hardware manufacturers offer linked Rudder Pedals as a product. Does anyone know if linked brakes are also being sold by anyone? specifically for a Boeing.

Thanks,

Dinshaw.

Dinshaw, I have never seen a linked Braking system before on an aircraft.  So I don't think anyone would offer such a thing.

Not sure about other aircraft, but the 737 has linked brake pedals.

I havent seen a commercial product that replicates though

You could link them electronically using a microcontroller like a Teensy or Arduino. As for mechanical linkage I would imagine something like that to be sooper-expensive.

Yes, the 737 does have linked brakes but you literally have to be leaning over the pedestal to see any movement even when in the full fwd position. Not worth the effort or expensive so I highly doubt you will find a hardware manufacturer offering this feature unless specifically asked for in a custom build.

Very lucky here, I have fully operational linked brakes on my 737-800 sim at home.

Yes Trevor, the 737 does have linked brakes.

How did you manage the linked Brakes Jim? Did you get them like that or have you modified them? I would love to know.

Thanks for the replies guys :)

HOLY SMOKES MINE ARE LINKED!

Yes, after all this time I have linked brakes and just forgotten. Okay, some years back I made a video of my yoke and pedal platform, and where I totally went through each portion of it to describe how everything works.

If you give me a few days to find, convert and upload it all to YouTube I will, but please be patient as I am trying to finish our outside yard work and after weeks of rain here in Wisconsin, we're finally getting some nice days...woohoo :idiot:

Dinshaw - I purchased from surplus the base assembly for my sim. It had been a level 4 FTD used by an airline prior to being scrapped.  Like John, I could take some pictures from above the floor, but I can't get under my sim to take pictures of much of the linkage. I have to jack the sim up to get under it.

Hi Dinshaw,

I found my video tape 1 of 2 and viewed it, but it does not show the toe brake linkage. I’ll look for tape 2 tomorrow and I hope that it has what you’re looking for. If not, I am going to recover my yoke and pedal platform with the coin shape rubber matting soon, so if you can hang in there I will get some new video for you...
