    New in the block!

    Hi all!!!

    I just registered my self in the forum and I am very happy to be with you!
    I am a 23 year old flight simmer who wants to build his own cockpit one day and that's why I am here!
    I started a couple of years before with a try to make my own 737 throttle quad.
    It's not ready yet and it will never be cause I plan to rebuilt it and use stronger materials and new technics.At the momment I want to concetrate on building a yoke column wich I think its a bit easier.I found a tutorial in here uses a sidewinder.What a shame I wasted mine by using it to build my throttle...
    Anyway...
    Nobody learns without a fail!
    I am with you and ready to build as much parts as I can.The only think that stops me is my family cause they say I waste their space(bla bla bla bla bla....) and my wallet that is empty.
    I am sure in the end I will build a homepit as cheap and realistic as it gets!

    Thank for reading this.

    See ya!

    I think itís hi time I introduced myself. Iím a retired CAF Air traffic controller now enjoying my retirement in Eastern Canada. I was also a long time civy flight instructor throughout my career in the military (as a part time job). Iíve owned a few airplanes in the pass and Iíve built and flown a Vanís RV-4 for a number of years. I have been a Flt.Sim enthusiast ever since I can remember when and now Iíve come across your fine Web site and forum.
    I read Joe Laveryís fine article in PC Pilot magazine and it really got me going as a ďsomething to tryĒ item. Iíve gone as far as I can with the B737 throttle Quadrant and now I need someoneís help in locating the required gears for this unit. I can purchase the 6 gears from a shop in France for less than $2.00 cdn. However the shipping would cost me $36.00. The gears in question are 20mm and 60mm (PVC) with a 4mm hub. (3 of each). If anyone knows of a North American source, any info would be appreciated.

    Many thanks and a great forum.

    I stopped counting the failures several years ago.

    If it hadn't been for the failures, my sim wouldn't be where it is today.

    No one writes an instruction manual for building a sim. It's sometimes trial and error before something is working or looking correctly.

    Welcome to the forum new guys. Hope to see some of your projects soon.
