Hello from Belgium,
Hello from Belgium
I'm following this amazing forum for quite some time, so I think it is time to introduce myself. My native language is not English but Dutch, so I apologize for making errors.
I have a background of electronics and my current profession is programming business applications.

Flying is done in FSX and I started building my very own simulator, a
The most difficult part was to decide where to start. After carefull consideration, and a lot of reading on this forum I've decided to start with the TQ. If I could get that difficult part to work, then I'm sure I could make everything else.
For now I'm very happy because since yesterday the throttle levers are fully working, complete with autothrottle. Still a lot of work to be done before the TQ is completed.
I have included a few pictures of my progress and a picture of a small unit that accept a PC power supply connector, just plug the power supply connector in the socket and the PC power supply starts to work. No need to open the supply.
