QuoteFirst, I have to thank all of you for all this wonderful information.I will most likely be getting a real 737-500 TQ in the next week. My fabircation skills are horrible, so as much as I can find pre-fab'd the better. I am decent with electronics and excellent programmer. So I may even offer to help trade services if neccesary to get some of those pre-fabircated parts. Anyway, I have a few questions that I have not found yet:* Fred, your part list was great, however the one piece I did not see you give a part number for was the slip clutch. Could you please provide the model for that?* I have read 2 or 3 other detailed TQ builds and none of them have mentioned the reverse thrust potentiometer or how the motor is tied for the trim wheel. Are these extra things that need to be added as well?Thanks in advance!
QuoteThanks Fred!I was watching Scott's in-depth videos and got a much better idea of what I was looking for, and your comments are invaluable.A few more quick questions, I was looking to order those string pots online and found one or two places that I could conveniently order. Most others looked like I had to call and place an order. And are they really around US $100-$150/ea? Any advice on metal working tools I might need. My tools are all wood tools at the moment. I noticed a lot of metal work. Sorry if this sounds silly, but could I purchase some metal cutting saw blades and use those same tools? And no, I won't hold you liable I'm thinking about having to cut out metal spacers for pulleys, or fabricating my own metal brackets. What type of medal did you use and how did you cut it for the most part? On the brackets, did you have to do any welding? Again, I appreciate all your help! This last bit of info should be plenty to get me started.

The TQ is fully motorized including spd break lever actuation (either via "armed" on landing or via application of reverse thrust on an RTO or after landing). I am very pleased with the results. Throttle lever motion is much improved over my old servo-operated TQ. If anyone is interested in the script let me know....it is written specifically for SimA but can be modified otherwise of course.The Open Cockpits "DCMotorsPlus" interface has operated flawlessly to this point. I am using caps across the pot connectors to ensure elimination of any noise interference as suggested in the instruction manual.FredK
Quote from: carlostxnl on July 27, 2014, 03:50:47 AMHi Fred I assuming that the dc motors are 12v. How many amps ? I ordered a TQ from cockpit-for-you but I haven't received an answer to my question regarding the amperage uds by the dc motors. I want to use the correct power supply Thanks RegardsCarlos

I click on the paper clip but don't get a response. Am I doing something wrong? Perhaps you could just email me the SIOC program to my email at email@example.com Thanks.
