Well here I am again so let you all in whats really going on. Part 1, consider it a preamble.
Goal: requirements ie Start of the Plan.
|Header 5||Header 6|
Arduino mega for hardware (this gives me 16 analog inputs)
Use CAN bus for communications
|Use big joystick for the software. and modify it to work with more analog inputs, communication via CAN bus versus USB which has its share of problems. big one: device ports /dev/ports will change with changing configurations, and or moving it.|
|Suncom||SFS dual throttle Needs lots, and lots of rework. New aluminium throttle arms.|
|Suncom||F-15E Talon Stick. Need tons of rework.|
RCS pedals from back in the day. Needs tons of rework and will be using two small air actuators piped cross wise to auto-center and feedback.
|Carma Eng||Gear Switch (F-104)|
|Processor Select Panel, 7-F511F00121-1. Most likely will use RS-485 to talk to it.|
I will be returning to this page and adding more channels and discrete switches
