    Dual Rudder Pedels help! Air Cadets

    Hi there please reply if you can help,
    we are a group of youngsters aged 13-18 in the Air Training Corps in England
    we are working on a project to replicate one of the aircraft we fly The Grob Tutor
    we have a few concerns with the mechanical and practical sides of creating the sim- naturally due to our lack of experience. although we do have a dual stick prototype made

    one main thing is the dual rudder pedals.

    we want the dual movement so the cadets can actually follow through with the movements of the instructor a basic method we practise to allow the cadets to get a feel of the sensitivity of the controls on their first flight. we would also need a solution to interface it with fs2004. possibly by connecting a pot. on one of the pedals?

    has anyone done this cheaply and easily? Please help out as we are eager to join your sim community. does anyone have any photos suggestions or just ideas- help inspire us!
    Thanks

    Hi there,
    I have a video on this page of how I make and link Boeing type rudder pedals - http://www.aerosimsolutions.com.au/videos.html

    This is how I had my dual rudders in an earlier set up. http://www.mycockpit.org/photopost/d...yaw-linked.jpg

    These pedals are now taking up space in my shed doing nothing!!! AUD$250 + postage for both sets if you would like them! One set is fitted with a gear driven potentiometer. They all have toe brake switches fitted too.

    Cheers Gwyn (Westozy)

    Hi Andrew,
    I have sold my old original pedals unfortunately and only have the new production types left! I have replied to your email.

    Cheers Westozy

    Hi Andrew,

    Have a look at my webpage detailing how I built my dual linked pedals some time ago. In fact this procedure was copied directly from Gwyn's original design so if you can replicate it then you've effectively built his original pedals which are now sold.

    Good luck,

    Ken.

    also thanks ken, i had a look at your website we are all very impressed, we were thinking of doing something similar using old industrial rails from draws, but this is more simple and effective -thanks!
