    Throttle Quadrant Progress

    Hello,

    I am working on a B767 project, and decided to take a break from working on the MIP. So, I decided to work on the throttle quadrant. Here it is , about 90% completed. I connected in to the Plasma MM2 12 bit joystick card from Beta innovations, and got it calibrated and working in no time.


    For inspiration, I used real photos, and measurements and also relied heavily on the photos posted by Ivo De Colfmaker, found here;

    The annunciators are made from small lego pieces ( this was discussed in an ealier thread), and the flaps are spring loaded for a nice feel.







    Next stop..........MCP
