    Question Airbus Speed Brake and Parking Brake

    Because I can't get my shell to my home in Florida, I plan on building an open cockpit. With my A340 items

    I've had several promises of people building or providing me with the Handle and Mechanism for a Airbus "Speed Brake" and "Parking Brake," functional like the real thing. But believe it or not, to this day, I still don't have them.

    Anyway, my question is. Anyone know where I can get these two items?

    Matt,

    I have not built a parking brake yet, but I have built a speed brake panel and flaps panel with lever pot mechanism to connect to an analog axis input. I have not tested the speed brake yet, but the flaps work great. The detents are provided with the hole/acorn nut arrangement just like my gear lever, there are just more holes, one for each detent. there is a gear mounted at the bottom of the lever that turns a smaller gear mounted on the pot shaft. I would be more than happy to make you one if you can tolerate the lack of accuracy in the implementation. As a matter of fact I just finished the CAD for the final version a couple of days ago. I can mail (or bring) you the prototype and let you look at if you like.

    For speed brakes ( I assume that's the same as spoiler in FSUIPC) the offset appears to be 0BD0, so we can map the range in FSUIPC just like any other axis, like flaps.
