    Hi

    Im guessing your the Miguel I got an email from you a few weeks ago and replied, but I never heard what you were wanting to discuss or learn. I am working on building the Lear 45 throttle at 1:1 currently and progress is good. I will be glad to share with you the info, or we can possibly build the internals for you at a good price. Just contact me via the same email you used previously. You can see the info yourself at: http://www.ar-aero.com/product_list....s&sub=Controls

    Also, I read thru some of your other posts made previously asking about how to make a Learjet landing gear lever. Us Lear builders are in luck! I wanted to let you know that there is no landing gear 'lever' on the Learjet 45- it's a simple locking toggle switch that has to be pulled out (aft) to move from up to down and vice versa. I have already looked at some sites on the internet and have only found Honeywell switches that lock out like I need for this (imagine that-the company that makes the engines and avionics of the L45!). I will continue to look for locking OFF-ON toggles for this application, but I may just go with a non-locking toggle if I cant find one cheaper that $52.00! If you look at this picture here, you will see how it's just a flush-mounted toggle with a gear handle attached to the toggle bat: http://www.airliners.net/open.file/0392645/L/
