Where do i begin from here.
« on: September 19, 2018, 09:49:31 AM »
Ok.

I have interfaced my Yokes 100%
My Throttle 70% complete (dont have the drive to continue on this)

What should i continue with?

This is an OEM build.

You folks who have done this, should i start with all the backlight, or panel by panel or module by module?
I go into my simulator room each night and stare at it without doing anything because i cant make up my mind on where to start...

What do you suggest?

Leave the sim  alone for a while, go out , and everything will clear up and get organized.

You just have a severe overdose of sim-building.

well i will be the sim doctor... heres your problem.. i think are are now at the decision stage ..   you have so much time and money invested  that if yiu stop building now you may get out the money yii have into it.. or do you carry on with the build and do what with it ... from what i understand your sim is not flyable .. biggesr mistake ever ..always always keep your sim flyable ... the best motivatio  get some people in to help you

The sim is flyable! Just with yokes and throttle. But no overhead or pedestal.

Jack might be onto something, let the motivation return and then the progress continous. 😊

That would be wise.

Whats left is:
Speedbrake servo
Trim servo
Flaps chain and motor

Think thats about it.

Any good servos that you have used for a OEM throttle?
What RPM should i look at for flaps motor?
