    Re: Building a 737 Sim

    Hi,
    I have a question about the OpenCockpits standard grey concentric knob. In fact there are two knobs of different size in the little plastic bag (see link below). I can push an 8 position rotary switch a little bit inside the biggest knob (to use it for for the N1 SET and SPD REF on the Autobrake/flaps panel). But it's impossible to push it fully through the hole in the knob. Furthermore I don't get what to do with the smaller knob. Can anyone help me out?

    Rik

    This is what happens sometimes. I think I have the same problem - I just sanded the rotary switch and fiddled a bit with a drill inside the knob until it fitted. You fasten it anyway with a screw afterwards. If the knob doesn't have a screw, sand little by little.
