    Having flown Peters sim i can add that this is the most impressive 737 throttle i've ever played with !! (except for the real one that is )

    I'm really happy Peter is helping me motorize my real 200 throttle now.

    WOW It looks like a real throttle Can I ask you how did you make the metal parts ? You made them yourself ?

    Great work..

    thank you..

    Thank you, thank you, for your encouraging comments.

    Maxime, indeed I made the metal parts myself, except the speedbrake. All parts are aluminium. I am the lucky owner of a small CNC machine. That forces me to translate my sketches in autocad drawings. Sometimes a bit time-consuming, but it has the advantage that it helps discovering any design faults in the first stages of building parts. If I would'nt do that, I always get parts that don't fit or just have wholes in the wrong places.
    I think that patience and a steady hand often can compete with a CNC machine. All parts you see in my throttle, could be made by hand. If you make a good drawing first and take your time.

    Regards,
    PdG_737
