Two ?? to ask

Recommended Posts

1) I am looking for exact diameter, the length and width of B767-400 or B777 throttle quadrant. Hopefully have diameetr for leveler too. Would anyone know where I can find the diameter??2) I have project magenta package installed into 3 different computers. I have build MIP which CRT monitor would be sitting behind and now I suppose if I was going to start FS I would need to set up connection with Wide FS and click on PM icon to intialize the program. This would make it unrealistic so would there be a way that I could just have the PM initilize without just clicking mouse on PM's icon??Let me know

Arthur, the best place that I think you can get the dimensions of the 767 throttle quadrent is at www.simpit.de You'll have to figure out and document them though.

Tuomas.. I do know "autostart" can work with FreeFD by adding path name into batch files. Once it executes, all of FreeFD windows appears. But, with PM, it doesn't get to work. I don't know why, probablly software confilcts. SO this is why I wanted to ask around seeing if there is other methods on getting PM software to appears once the computer turns on or non-mouse-clicking-to-icon. Otherwiae I can ask PM supporters to see what I can do about it.LGAwww.simpit.de would be good for anyone who wants to build B757 or B763 version or at least. But I wanted the B764 version. The 400 version's interior is much similar to B777 except for quadrant (a little) and and MCP. However, I do believe its hard to find the actual dimension unless someone is willing to share the dimension. So thanks anyway.

77711" wide x 12" long (when facing from rear of cockpit.I have a few other measurements...if you want.

>777>11" wide x 12" long (when facing from rear of cockpit.>I have a few other measurements...if you want.Great-- thanks... Would you know the height> circular diameter, width and length of thrust leveler? or any other things on quadrant??Abiut other measurements If you are talking about MIP and Cebter pedestal.. I already got them.Thank you...

Thomas, That will work for me, I will wait until you are ready. I appreciate it.Richard, I didn't know that-- I mean I haven't went deeper into WideFS yet. I will look up through WideFS documentation and see how I I could put up the programss needed to start up with FS. Thank you for letting me know, I appreciate it.

Arthur, Do you know of anyone who has a FDS 777 throttle who might want to share the dimensions with you? Could be your best bet. Deltaflight also built a similar throttle.

I wish I knew anyone that has FDS B777 thust level. It;d be nice if I know this so I can kinda nicely ask for the dimension.
