That looks good Manuel. How do you like the trim wheel? Have been sort of thinking of getting one.Kind regards,
Thanks Stephen, I only got it three days ago but the initial impression is very good.Controlling the elevator trim on the Realair B60 with the trim wheel is easier than with the little switches on the yoke.I completed a short leg without using the autopilot at all.I never flew a real plane so I cannot say if it works like the real one.

It doesn't work like the real aircraft. At least not GA.To my knowledge, and experience, I can say that in real aircraft (at least, the one that I flew), you first set your stick THEN set the trim. Setting the trim without prior setting of the stick/yoke is really really hard.That was in the Katana.I guess on the bigger commercial airliners, you set the trim without touching the yoke, but I would guess that the yoke "moves" while you set it - real pilot please confirm.

Thanks Word Not Allowed! It is coming in due time ;) I want the full floor stand/yoke setup... The real money is being saved for the motorized throttle unit right now. just hoping someone does a 777 unit :)Thank you very much Stephen! It is amazing how the teenie tiny dell in the middle with the second screen allowed me to pay for everything around it!!! Guess that is what hard work does!Ha, the tan isn't from the screens Rich, it is from a love of travel and living 100 yards from the ocean :)Thanks again everyone, glad I finally got around to sharing LOL

Ah yes, but just because they dance in my lap doesn't mean I have to date them or marry them :)Not to mention, no woman wants to put up with all the work, toys and travel coming first :LMAO:But in all seriousness, I was engaged 2x, first girl was a gem and I broke it off when I got seriously injured despite her begging to be by my side. Second one walked out on me in the middle of the night 2 nights after being released from hospital for ANOTHER spinal operation when I was begging her to be there for me. (yes, Karma is a ######, I am a firm believer in what goes around comes around now!!!!) She even took the truck I just bought for her to use to leave me!! After that I was seriously scorned and don't see myself married unless there are kids involved :Talk to the Hand: That last relationship cost me a lot financially and even more emotionally but the catch is the more you play the reclusive guy that doesn't want a relationship the MORE women want to "convert" you to a relationship. I guess they like a challenge as much as we do :Party:Not to mention, between a fused spine, one hip already replaced, another hip about to be replaced, ongoing spinal issues and the pain mgmt associated with all of that it would take a very very special person to sign up for all that!

That is the most impressive setup I have ever seen... Can I try it out? :Big Grin:
Thanks Ben, far from the most impressive but I appreciate it! More than welcome to try it but I don't think there are any flights from Alpha Centauri to KEWR.... ;)

Been closet running FSX since the NGX Ryan ;) I still use 9 for my 777 long hauls but for my 737 short hauls I am in the NGX :) Now when PMDG lets us start Beta testing the 777 and if FSX ever gets a good KEWR I might never go back :)

Here's a quick recent shot of the setup.... (hmmm do I need to take some hints from the DIY cable thread lol?)It's usually not this messy... but it works great. skyvector, adds, approach plates etc on the small monitor (secondary PC linked to mine with Synergy+ ) and my main rig of course (added the pedals in Dec)IMG_7058_edit.jpg

I can't believe you quoted his entire post, including all nine pictures, just to ask about the throttle quadrant.Check here: http://forum.avsim.n...little-project/

It won't look anything like mine, that is why you can't find it... Mine is two units together, mounted to a custom built case, sanded and painted to resemble a Boeing unit...Stock they look like this:http://www.amazon.com/Saitek-Three-Throttle-Quadrant-PZ45/dp/B000TCEU4Q/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1329918353&sr=8-1041WN5EsrXjL._SL500_AA300_.jpg
