Hi guys,

Im building a 763. Im considering using a GF-TQ6 as the base for a custom 763TQ surround/facia. Has anyone used this TQ and have they pros/cons or ideas for this unit.

Regards

James

Jimbo,

My 767 throttles will be pretty much the same, I think its a good unit to use as a base.

Hi rhys,

I agree, there is a lot more scope in terms of lever position. I know the reverser levers wont be the same but close enough for me.

Yeah the reversers would be outside the main lever assembly but yeah like you say close enough.
The only other problem I can see is the Flap guide as this is a lot shorter in duration that the real thing.

Added you to msn also Jimbo!

Regarding the reversers, I wonder if a dog leg turning in to bring the plant on levers inside the main lever assembly would work?

Maybe, You would need a runner going through the main lever but yeah could work not sure how you would get the correct movement action though?

Ya the correct movement action would be a no go in terms of the pulling up motion. Im gonna order one anyway and start some trials.

I have NO clue if this is of any use for you, but: bell cranck. That's a common device in model planes. it is - most commonly - a 45 or 90 degree thingy that transforms movement in 45 or 90 degrees. Might be a useful hint. Smile
