  1. This is the image Maraponga sent me (by Skype, not Private Message).  

    I'm out of ideas but I note a couple of things.   Anyone else care to step in and have a shot at this?

    His Shft-Z info seems to be in Italics.  The title bar text is not italicized.  Mine isn't, in either place.

    The fonts in the title bar and the Shft-Z info appears to be bolded.  Mine isn't.  

    He's on Win7 so maybe that's apples and oranges but don't ever recall seeing either italics or bold fonts in those places.

  2. You're posting every time you put a message here, just not with an image.

    Posting an Image

    Let's try the easy way first and see if it works...

    1. Take a screen shot by pressing the PrtScrn key on your keyboard.  The screen image is now on your Clipboard.

    2. Come here to the reply box for this thread and press Ctrl-V (paste).  It should drop an image into the box.  

    3. Submit the reply.

    If that doesn't work it gets a little more complex.  Post if you have a problem using this method and we'll take the next step.

    Posting a URL

    1. Triple-click the address bar in your browser when you're at the location you want to capture a URL for. The entire URL should be highlighted.

    2. Without moving off the address bar, right-click and select Copy.  The URL is now on your Clipboard.

    3. Come here to the reply box for this thread and press Ctrl-V (paste).  It should drop the URL into the box.

    4. Submit the reply.

    John

    EDIT:  I see nothing above about posting a URL.  What's that all about?

    JDA


  3. Have you changed to Full Screen view, accidentally or deliberately?  If so there will be no Windows title bar at the top and your FS screen will cover the entire display.  If you're in that mode Alt-Enter will take you back to the windowed mode.  Alt alone should show the menu.

    What flight sim are you using?

    What version of Windows?

  7. https://www.wate.com/news/watch-live-world-war-ii-aircraft-crash-at-bradley-airport-airport-closed/

    An NTSB board member, possibly probably misquoted by the press, said the plane experienced "...elevation..." problems within five minutes after takeoff.

    The last report I've seen indicates seven confirmed dead.

    There were three crew aboard (one a "flight attendant") and ten paying passengers.  Paid joyrides in vintage aircraft are fairly common here.  Mutley and I took one in a Ford Trimotor a couple of summers ago.  They are typically owned and operated by organizations dedicated to restoring and preserving historic aircraft, as was the case with the B-17.

    It sounds like a runway excursion occurred during the landing, leading to collision with a building, then fire.  It's unstated whether the earlier in-flight problem contributed in any way to the loss of control while landing.  With an in-flight issue prompting an early return, the pucker meter must already have been deep in the yellow.

    The fire damage is dramatic.  Airborne photos seem to indicate the empennage and one wing are separated and relatively undamaged - the rest is unrecognizable as even being an aircraft, much less a B-17.

  10. I'm posting this in an old thread because this is where it seems to fit best...

    Norway's first electric plane crash-lands on lake

    "The cause of the crash was not immediately clear..."

    "...police said the pilot and passenger both escaped unhurt."

    "...Alpha Electro G2 plane, produced by Slovenia’s Pipistrel…"

  11. Does the shield use analog or PWM outputs from the Arduino?  May be optional, with a jumper on the shield or some assignments within the Arduino code.  I suspect the shield plugs into all the output pins on the Arduino, so there should be a way to use either analog or PWM outputs (but probably not the digital outputs) to drive the shield.  The shield documentation and any included sample code should show how to do that.  If I remember correctly, some of the Arduino analog outputs can be configured in the code for PWM.

    I can see how the Arduino code/board will drive the motor shield and how the motor shield outputs will apply analog voltages to the pins of the gauge, causing the needles to deflect.   I guess you can use the control assignments within FS for trim inputs and that will affect the AC within FS, but how will those inputs within FS get to the Arduino to make the gauge follow your inputs?

    Also, autopilot will affect trim settings within FS so when set up properly, the gauge should reflect those when the autopilot is coupled.  Should be a really interesting display.

    Which Arduino are you using?  Uno?  Mega? Other?

    John


  12. Interesting hardware.  Thanks for posting. 

    The relays for the warning panel look like overkill.  It really doesn't require a relay to operate a lamp or LED, just a simple low-power transistor, which would have saved a ton of space in the aircraft.  Understand it's older technology, but so are transistors now.  They've been around for quite a lot longer than the Tornado has.  Of course a lot of military hardware is designed on a cost plus basis, so if a contractor/vendor can justify a more costly approach he gets paid accordingly.

    Does that relay rack go inside the warning display box?  There must be a lot of wires connecting to that in the aircraft.

    Trim gauge is pretty neat.  Please post as you get it working from the Arduino.  I guess the gauge "needles" can be thought of as simple voltmeters, displacing in proportion to the negative or positive voltage applied.  Probably not how it would be done if designed today but simple and reliable and accurate enough for that particular application.

    Is the knob in the center of the gear indictor lights just for adjusting brightness?

    Great looking gear anyway.  Where did you manage to find this kind of thing for sale?

    John


  13. Yes, I'd like to see your progress on this, including photos if you can.  

    That Arduino stuff is really magic and there are all kinds of add-on shields and sensors and actuators available that are made to work with it.  You're only limited by your ingenuity with this stuff, and of course your budget.  Most of it is pretty cheap, however.

    How are you tying your real world devices back to FS?

    John


  14. Another - $6.99 on Amazon

    https://www.amazon.com/Qunqi-L293D-Shield-Arduino-Duemilanove/dp/B014KN2898/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=arduino+servo+shield+12v+output&qid=1565135208&s=gateway&sr=8-3

    Pretty sure the best answer is an Arduino motor or servo driver shield plugged into the top of your Arduino with an add-on 12 V power supply.  Be sure the board you get has input pins for a remote power supply of >= 12V.  I saw one that was only good for 10V and 600 mA, so not all of them will work.  You should probably tie the Ardino and external power supply negatives together, though the shield might be hard-wired to do that for you.

    You could also do this with discrete components built around a power transistor or an op amp, but it would take a lot of fooling around and the Arduino & shields solution takes a lot of the work out of it and provides a lot of built-in functionality and protections.  Calibration would be fiddly, no doubt and being able to tweak that easily in the Arduino code/script/sketch would make that much easier than trying to do it with pots, trimmers, etc.
