    Extreme Pit Makeover!

    I came across some photos of my first throttle quadrant.
    At the time, I felt pretty proud of it, and it eventually led me down the path all of us go down.......IMPROVEMENTS!

    I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of our first projects along with the improvement.

    Well, here is my first throttle, then my improvement; Its ok to laugh.

    BIG difference! Nice job on the re-build.

    If I can dig up a photo of my first I'll post the monstrosity. It only resembled a 727 throttle because it had three levers.
