  1. So like a year later I have an update :j:... I finally got to sit down and make a plan on constructing my Cyclic mechanism. After some serious thinking, while searching for the best combination of parts I did come up with these. The goal is to have no welding or serious machining involved and still get solid piece of hardware. So say tuned in if interested in my progress as I'm expecting to be 100% done in next few weeks.
  2. I like to know also. In my case I would like to have nothing but instrument gauges on separate monitor so i can build it into instrument panel very much like this here Please someone tell us this is possible with TOH
  3. I'll definitely keep the progress up to date, if people are interested of course. But it's going to be a little bit before I start at all, do to my financial situation right now and also i got to do more research on parts and materials. All I can say right now is, that I will most definitely use Hall Effect Sensors. Not just because they are more precise, but also because they eliminate all the crazy clock work mechanical gizmos you need if you choose potentiometers. So it makes the project less of a Head-ache and more Cost-effective
  4. OK so after some research I did find exactly what I need for custom build heli controls :bounce3: It's Joystick controller board that can handle: -8 potentiometers or Hall effect sensors (2 for collective, 2for cyclic, one for pedals, 2 for thumb stick) -32 buttons of custom assignment -8-way hat switch All this pre-wired with usb interface plug and play ready If you have some common sense and handy skills I don't see a problem with using this board and building your own collective, cyclic, pedals and panel full o custom switches Here is the board http://www.leobodnar.com/products/BU0836/ Also found this awesome thumb stick that will work perfectly with the board https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10433
  5. So I got answer from computerrepairs guys http://www.computerrepairs.ca/Controller_Ordering_Info.htm WOW! I guess I'm gonna stick to my "PVC pipe collective pitch" and "rubber band cyclic" saitek-mod control for a while... My cyborg mod pic http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa446/CZ97/IMG_4408.jpg
  6. Yeah,lol. If I was Mechanical Engineer with Degree in Electronics and had garage I'm sure i would be already working one one of those... I'll do more research and gather more ideas on this subject, thanx thou ---------- Post added at 18:28 ---------- Previous post was at 17:58 ---------- Yes that's real nice stuff, but i was thinking just some nice custom collective, cyclic and pedals would be nice, like these guys make http://www.computerrepairs.ca/ But like you said, its butt load of cash ---------- Post added at 18:41 ---------- Previous post was at 18:28 ---------- I'm running on pretty high setting with one monitor and game play is nice and smooth ( after I figure out to leave the Video memory on default lol) I'm sure 3 monitors will put much more stress on the system
  7. Thanx, those screens look amazing. My PC should run just fine, I hope. It's Intel i7 3820, 16 gig ram, GTX 690 Now, what are you talking about "hall effect sensor" yea, I wish I could just buy parts and wire them up to work with pc... yea that's not me. Perhaps If I could find detailed tutorial maybe then I can put something together from scratch. You know any useful websites?
  8. Hey guys, I'm new here and got couple of questions So my first question is there hardware section for TOH? I could not find it... Anyways I got single monitor set up and thinking about getting another two. Does TOH run on multiple displays? If so can I see some pictures, videos to give me an idea what can i expect with TOH. I would also like to see peoples controllers, custom stuff if any. Here you can see my home made collective ( won't let me post since its my firs post here) Is there way to activate on screen FPS? ---------- Post added at 23:48 ---------- Previous post was at 22:08 ---------- Here is my custom collective lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQrhrjTfu-s&feature=g-upl I know its super dorky but it works awesome
