||The Modular Simpit uses a
flight yoke, and this means that the throttle has to be at the right side.
For this new generation, I have chosen to add the mixture, propellor and
speed brake levers together with the throttle. The throttle also includes a
pull mechanism for reversing the engine thrust.
Throttle, mixture and prop are all single levers, since I seldom fly dual engine planes.
The complete unit can be screwed to the side of the Modular Simpit. There is also space for a tracker ball mouse.
I have drawn the complete unit in Google Sketchup. The Sketchup file for the throttle quadrant can be downloaded here. The file is build-up from several groups, so you can take the unit apart and check the dimensions of the various components.
The Throttle, Prop, Mixture and Speedbrake potmeters as well as the Elevator Trim rotary encoder are interfaced to MJOY-16 unit.
