Tot nu toe kon ik alle benodigde onderdelen in 2.5D ontwerpen met Inkscape en Estlcam. Dit is echter niet mogelijk voor de trim wielen, die een complexe vorm hebben. Ik heb inmiddels enige ervaring met het tekenen van het 3D model van de CNC frees in Sketchup, maar helaas mist de gratis versie Sketchup Make … More Throttle Quadrant – 3D modellen
So far I’ve been able to draw all parts in 2.5D with Inkscape and Estlcam. This is not possible however for the trim wheels which have quite a complex shape. From designing the 3D model of the CNC router I have experience with Sketchup, but some interesting import and export functions unfortunately are not available … More Throttle Quadrant – 3D models
In the Simbuilders Facebook group I saw an interesting idea to use an Arduino LCD screen for the cockpit AC/DC electrical metering panel that reports the various electrical voltages and currents. While searching for LCD displays for the Arduino I found the Nextion HMI touch displays. These are intelligent displays that can be programmed with … More Overhead panel: Nextion HMI electrical panel
For the stab trim wheels my original plan was to use a similar construction with bicycle chains as in this project because it fits nicely in the narrow space between the TQ plates. The derailleur jockey sprocket wheels that I intended to use for this had a problem however: they didn’t fit on the 10mm … More Stab trim wheels – bicycle chain or timing belt
Opnieuw even een update met de vorderingen van het throttle quadrant.
Intussen ben ik begonnen met de buitenste panelen met de flaps, speedbrake, parking brake en stab trim functies.
… More Throttle quadrant – remmen los
Another status update of the throttle quadrant. Meanwhile I’m working on the outer panels with the flaps, speedbrake, parking brake and stab trim functions. After checking more TQ projects photographs and videos on the internet I noticed the two ‘stops’ on the aluminum flaps guide, which are not always present on the throttle quadrants that … More Throttle Quadrant – give me a brake
After approximately a month the solenoid has arrived (a small drawback to the extremely low prices on aliexpress). But as a cockpit builder there are always other things you can continue with, so I used the time to optimize my drawing in Inkscape and to continue with the throttle quadrant. Similar to the method I … More MCP – autothrottle switch, part 2
