Quote from: ame on March 20, 2020, 08:23:12 PMToday I did a quick test of my tacho sensor in the prop sync indicator, to see if it would actually work.I'm using this tiny motor inside:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000152447766.htmlAt the end of the shaft is the black and white segmented indicator disc.At the gearbox I have another disc. This one is half black, half white, on the 'back' side towards the gearbox and motor.An optical sensor is mounted close to the gearbox, looking at the back of that disc. It can detect the black and white halves which gives me a tachometer signal which I can use to measure the rotation speed.Between the two discs is an LED. It shines through the white parts of the indicator disc. I was hoping it did not shine back through the tacho disc. It doesn't. In the photo you can see the LED pushed through a hole on the left. It lights up the indicator face and the whole of the front of the body. I'll print the body in black and paint the inside white. The indicator illumination is much more even than it appears in the photo.On the right is the optical sensor. It is a TCRT5000, which is common and cheap, although I'd like to use an RPR220, which is smaller. It is pointed towards the back of the tacho disc inside. I get clean regular pulses from the output of the sensor. It seems to be unaffected by the white LED.Next step is to add an H-Bridge to control the motor from an Arduino, and write some code to match the motor speed to the desired speed using the tacho signal.

Quote from: sagrada737 on April 13, 2020, 10:18:21 AMRegarding the ButtKicker transducers... You Might try remounting the transducer so it is in the lateral orientation. For seat mounting, I find that this produces/induces better vibration through the seat.

I made it with a stepper motor, a vid6606 driver for ultra smooth rotation and an Arduino mini, or micro, or something like that everything in the package (disc, light, stepper, driver and arduino). So it is just plug and play (with a Lua script through fsuipc). Arturo.
QuoteI also need to pester RayS again for dimensions of the front block and bezel. I like to make things that are similar in shape to the original.
