If you look at the TQ you will see that the throttles have a detent in a few places. Basically I am just going to align my detents with 90% and 75% power respec ...

SMD graphite soft keys could really work in this situation. But I have to find a type that is suitable, and still viable for people with 'normal' soldering skills. The key caps aren't the biggest prob ...

Using scrapped CB panels is an option. But the CB's often have no function in a sim, so it's also a good idea to put a 19" rack at that spot, since the simulator back wall is a perfect place to m ...
