Ok, Hold on buckle in. This post will not be pretty.  THE PROBLEM: Is the Arduino's instance on their IDE and a crippled ANSI C/C++ language called Sketch.  By the time, you have written a couple of what they call a Sketchs. They have really messed with you. As the two functions that basically you use are setup() and loop(). My aim here is not to teach you how to write a nice program in ASNI C/C++.   harrison@Whirlwind ~ $ ls Tools 2wgs eclipse-avr QnewB 3wgs FileZilla3 Renesas ...
MPCD Prototype Figure 1 Well, here we are back at the MPCD, I have blogged twice before about this unit. First, where I got the pin-out for  MPCD and got it working. Then I had to rewire the cable. Well, now it's the third time.. The Interface ( switches ) are arranged in 5 x 4 matrix, so I could just build a matrix, add diodes, and write a scan module. Nah, that's too much work! If you remember my CP-1252/ASN-128 CDU (Figure 2).  I interfaced the CDU  with an Arduino and t ...
My Lab Figure 1 Ok, Not quite everything I do makes some form of loose flying and then landing crud, dust, FOD or whatever you want to call it. I'm going to refer to it as FOD or Foreign Object Debris. In your shop, FOD is something that you want to manage and or mitigate. Personally I live small 2 bedroom apartment, and I don't have a lot of room. My lab is about 11 x 13 feet one wall is just storage. Sometimes you can't even walk around,  and I alway  have too much going on at onc ...

NexGen: Rudder Pedals

Posted by phoenixcomm Top Member Jul 31, 2015
Well, you know you need rudder pedals to perform coordinated turns, and differential braking. I used to have this solved with a  Thrustmaster  RCS (Figure 1), But in moving etc they got strayed, misplaced or stolen. Sometime in 2011 I came across this hot mess (Figure 2) using two (2) air cylinders cross plumbed, ensures device centered. Thrustmaster RCS Figure 1 A good idea, bad implementation. Figure 2 CH pedals Figure 3 CH pedal internal Figure 4 Athough the pedals ...
