    Video of motorized Autothrottle

    Hi,

    This seems to be the day of the auto throttles!
    I just uploaded a video clip about my new motorized auto throttle in action:

    www.hanskrohn.com -> site news

    Or go directly to the page with all info on the throttle:

    Or use the direct link to the clip:

    This is a great video. Nice prospective for the camera angle. I felt more like I was in a SR-71 ready to head into high speed.

    Well Done

    Wow,

    Thats excellent. You did a great job on that. Working with gears would be a little out of my reach I am afraid.

    Makes people like me dream though.

    Keep up the great work!

    Fantastic Hans! Your engineering skills are first rate. It sometimes amazes me how many sim-builders are actually pretty damn good engineers without any formal training.

    I'm not saying you're not a degreed engineer though!

    God I love this hobby.

    I'm not and never was. Sometimes I resent that fact (all the nice things I could have built with enough time and resorces at a place like Boeing Corp).

    But some strange twist of fate made me a banker. Well, at least my job pays for my hobby (which I love as much as you)!

    Best,
    Hans
