    My new rudder pedals from FDS

    Just installed my new rudder pedals from FDS. Have to say that I am quite impressed...still having a bit of brain tease to get the toe brakes to work properly through FSUIPC...but other than that they are highly precise, excellent construction, and very very heavy.

    @AndyCYXU, it is a BAe146. Yes...all the analog gauges work through the Open Cockpits I/O servo boards. The gauges themselves are not 146 specific, (except for the fuel quantity indication) but rather Boeing. All instruments had to be gutted and modified to accept a servo motor, then had to write a program for each one. They work fantastic!

    Working on the master warning panel now.

    Hello Eric737...unfortunaltey you cannot purchase these yokes as they are the "real deal". In other words they have been taken from a scrapped 146, I then modified them with rotary pots for Aileron and elevator control, programmed the switches through FSUIPC for elevator trim and autopilot disconnect. All the inputs for this yoke go through the Bodnar joystick control board (BU0836X).
