Version 1.0 is like Whitney Houston comeback concert in 2006...

Utter... Rubbish...

kurt-olsson

Right Comm complete!

kurt-olsson

Another panel interfaced!

With my current pace of about 2 panels / year i will be done with my simulator 2046.

kurt-olsson

Pedals ver 2.0 completed.
Just some slidepots left and we are good to go.

The otherone should be done pretty quickly since i have the design completed.


Joe Lavery

I think I recognise that design Kurt.  8)

Haha wonder where i got my help from Joe? Hehe

I think your setup is more pro, stronger shaft and nicer mounting.

But mine works really really well, better than i expected especially compared to my first version that was useless.

Now i will make one more before making the covers and footrests.

The pedals makes the cockpit looks more complete for sure.

Hey Kurt, if it works, it works!

I think you know my design was based on one I saw on YouTube from another builder. But that's how these things work, I amended his design and you amended mine... all good!

Keep safe my friend

Thanks Jack and Joe.

Right now i have good momentum. Will finish my second rudder pedal this weekend and a huge milestone is reached. All manual controls alnost complete and normal operations in reach.

Hope this flow will last a while, feels like i been out of progress for a year.

But i had my third kid last year so Simtime does not increase unfortunatly. Hhaaha

kurt-olsson

Finally rudders on both sides!

jackpilot

See !  when you are at it  :D

Congrats, looks terrific.

Bad boys bad boys what you gona do? What you gona do when the Autothrottle clicks off for you!


That little switcher is epic!

jackpilot

Have one like that, 12v works fine for the solenoid.


Jack

kurt-olsson

Thats right Jack. Same with this one. A friend told me about 12V. This is great because i can then use only my computer psu for my glareshield.

kurt-olsson

Haha i can look at this picture with a big grin on my face. Boy, did i suck at cable management and electronics when i started my MCP!

The learning process is just as fun as building and flying.


jackpilot

Just a minor comment: avoid twisting (been there done that myself  :-[ )


Jack

kurt-olsson

Agree, the twisting is from the past and also allready done on the cables i bought. Hard to remove and track.

Hello Kurt,

Congratulations on the progress with your Sim Project!   Some of the modules you have made are impressive.  As you well know, making your own Rudder/Brake system is a challenge.  You did a good job with this part of your Sim.  It is very similar to the OpenCockpit's Rudder Assembly, which is clean and simple.

Regarding wire harnessing...   This is a very challenging part of the Sim build, as it requires insight as to how various assemblies integrate with each other, and how each and every wire harnesses need to be carefully considered.   Nothing worse than a "Rat's Nest" of wires -- especially when you have to debug different assemblies.

Keep up the good work!

Best Regards,]
Mike
