Steering the Tumbril with my rudder pedals felt somehow awkward, so my last modification of the TEST pit

The only problem is that it blocks my keyboard and tablets when doing other stuff the driving, so... I modified the desk clamp, added a hold underneath my keyboard drawer.

Storing

When I don't need the steer, like most of the time, it is stored away  



Now the finishing touch will be to manage the cables, work in progress :grin:

[EDIT] Cable managment

Simple but effective

The latest update.
  • The top display changed from a 24" to a 27", because... why not, it fits
  • The G13 is now better fixed. It used to be fixed on one side only, but since the left Warthog comes very close to the G13 now, I fixed it from the left and right side
  • The Warthog Throttle now has a Shapeways no-detent mod. I was never aware of the throw between idle position and off position. The total throw now is increased by 20%
  • The top of both side consoles now is an oversized mouse pad, cut to fit, taped to the top with double sided tape.

  • I replaced the TrackClip pro transmitter by a UTC Mk II+ wireless transmitter. I'm only trying not to forget to switch it off after use  
  • The UTC Mk II+ only came with some Velcro tape, so I made a simple aluminium mount for the headset.

  • I replaced the 2 Warthog bases by 2 Virpil WarBRD bases. That is a really awesome upgrade!!!!
  • The right-handed left-hand Warthog grip is now truly a left-handed grip. When ordering the Virpil WarBRD bases, I was considering a left-handed grip, but the metal Warthog was superior to the Virpil left-handed grips, plus I didn't want the twist of the Delta grip.
  • The thumb button moved from the left side to the right side.
  • The pinky button moved from the left side to the right side.
  • I switched the lower two buttons on top of the grip.
