A320 Throttle Quadrant
New to this forum and but am building an A320, sorry i have no website up and running yet!
Anyhow, Dose anyone have for sale or know of a site where i can purchase an a320 thorttle quadrant quite cheaply, FDS used to manufacture one for around $500 but since changed to pro-m ones at 3,500 which is well out of my price range for a bulider.

There is also a nice airbus throttle available for sale from the spanish guys at opencockpits.
With backlight, detents, trim, etc looks very nice from the pictures and the youtube movie.
In the forum at www.airsimtech.com, following URL : http://www.airsimtech.com/forum/foru...p?TID=106&PN=1
here you can find some info about it, pictures, link to the youtube movie, etc...

I'm afraid they are not building the throttle any more (at least at this time). Maybe if there are enough people interested they would reconsider (?).
It sure looks like a great product !!Luis Gordo

A320 TQ "quite cheap", no such thing I think! It might be an assembly of small plastic and metal parts but 120 hours of labour isn't cheap no matter who is building them. The only cheap TQ's are DIYs I'm afraid. My units are AUD$3000 + 10% GST. Build time is approx 3 months from order but for the next 6 to 9 months I am building an A340 TQ and 2 x B737 quads, the order book is full!
737NG using Prosim737, Immersive Calibration Pro, Aerosim Solutions motorized TQ & cockpit hardware, CP Flight MCP & FDS SYS1X, SYS2X & SYS4X, FDS PRO FMCs, AFDS units & Glarewings, Matrix Orbital ELEC display, Pokeys Landing & Cruise alt display, Buttkicker Gamers, 3 x BenqMW811ST projectors with a Matrox Th2Go
