    777 project

    Hi guys,

    I am quiet new on this forum, building on a 777 cockpit since 2002. I updated my website today.

    This week I finished my dual linked yoke. It has a dc motor in it, that is controlled via the electric trim switch in both yokes. This motor turns the position of the equilibrium of the springs into another position.
    In this way the complete trimming is done without the pc. If I pull the yoke towards me, I can feel the forces at first but after triming nose up , the forces disappear.

    In short time I will make a small film and put in on youtube whith a link on my site, exlaining how it works.
    But I think everybody on this forum will understand how it works when looking at the rest of the pics on my site.

    Next will be the dual linked pedals.
    regards

    Norbert

    Hi Norbert,

    I have to say that those yokes look very good. Im not a fan of homemade yokes after I tackled that (or should I say attempted to tackle) project 2 years ago and hated my results. I decided then and their that I would either use real yokes, or an aftermarket yoke so that both of them would match in appearance and size properly.

    Good to see your project- keep us all updated!

    Re: 777 project

    Hi guys,

    Another update of my pit.
    I installed my 2 (homemade)seats. That gives a very completely different feeling (comparing to sitting on a ordinary kitchenchair).

    Norbert OMG! Those seats look fantastic along with your project.

    Seats seem to be one of the big mysteries around here but you met that challenge. Congrats!
