i started a few designs, but always got to give it up due to room size, or room unavailable.
so this is the one I will work on, small room, 2.4by 2.4 meters, I know, a closset .
my shell is painted and in to place, so are the side tv’s.
the goal is to make a Beech Baron 58 with glass.
for the moment have the Simionic bezels, ipads still needed, and standby gauges will come from Flightillusions, have to order them next week.
for the yoke I thinking of Bruner CLS , but it is a costly thing, so will consider this with care.
the throttle I make myself, designd it in Fusion 360′ and in the procces of 3D printing a master for each piece, to serve as a mold the rest will be casted.
for the throttle I will use hall sensors, tested it and it seems to work.

Hi, thanks for asking, it’s on hold, I am on vacation and not at home for a month.
gonna adjust the design to make it more compact, the principle is working fine.
since I do not know the real travel distance of the levers, took 90 degrees from idle to full, resulting in a gear ratio of 1:2 .
is someone can give me the real travel distance of the levers of the baron 58 , that would be nice.

Wow. What a great project!

It was great, but had to abandon it, the 3D printed parts are not strong enough and they warp.
it would be nice in alu though, but that is beyond my skills.
decided to buy one from virtual fly.
in the mean time my mip is almost done, waiting for the Flight illusion gauges,
the Simionic G1000 is already in place, just needs the ipads
