    Motorize GoFlight Throttle Quadrant

    Good Day,

    I have been playing around with the idea of motorizing my GoFlight Throttle Quadrant so that the throttle levers move with the AutoThrottle. If I was to mechanically attach the throttle levers via servos and gears, and attach these servos to the PhidgetServo 1-Motor, is it possible to control their movement, and if so, how? What software would I require? I have a registered version of FSUIPC and also use all the Project Magenta software i.e. pmSystems, CDU, MCP, and GC. I exclusively fly the 737, so I would only need to control 2 throttle levers.

    Jim

    If you figure out a design and a way, please document your project! I have a TQ-6 here as well.
