    Bloody hell Zeb - Deep pockets!
    Lol, no the fuselage and windshield were $50 at the salvage yard. I have a few pounds of rivets and a roll of sheetmetal flashing from the hardware store. The collective is being made from raw materials + a 3D printer from WalMart (our cheap store in the US).

    In between everything else, working on a new set of controls for my JU 88.

    Making progress. All the controls are done except for the fuel selector switches. I'm using potentiometers, and they need to have detents for Off-Left-Right-Both, so I'm printing out parts on a prototype design as we speak. I plan to add a panel that flips up from the left side with trim controls...haven't started that yet because it will require some gearing, and I'll have to use my brain!

    Fuel Selector switches DONE! The number of detents is easy to change by simply changing the number and location of the notches in the knob.

    SpaceClaim_2020-07-08_10-38-37.png IMG_20200708_103342045_compress32 (1).jpg

    And here is my "Occupy Positions" panel. CLOD has potentially 9 positions that can be occupied, from pilot (position 1) to bombardier, to gunners. As you can see, there are 9 easily accessible buttons for the 9 positions. What's under the cover? A tenth button with a special purpose. Anyone who has flown multi-position aircraft in CLOD knows that when you switch to a gunner position and lean to gun-sight, you take over control of the gun from the AI. If you switch to another position, the AI gunner does NOT automatically re-take command of the gun. You may wonder why the AI gunner isn't doing anything...it's your fault for not releasing the gun back to him! The only way to release control is to occupy the position and hit ALT-F2. I don't think there is any way to tell CLOD to assign a joystick key or other command to this function; it has to be ALT-F2 apparently. So I have a macro running that captures this joystick button press and sends and ALT-F2 to the console. Why the cover? Well, you will find out the hard way that if you accidentally press ALT-F2 while occupying the pilot's position that it causes you to leave the plane entirely, and since you are the pilot, the aircraft will immediately nose down out of control until it crashes. There is no way to get back into the plane once you have left. Well, maybe you could escape to the game menu, then reoccupy the plane from there...I haven't tried it because every time I have accidentally done this the plane has crashed too quickly. Anyway, the cover is there to make it more difficult to accidentally send the ALT-F2.

    This setup looks awesome Kendy.

    Just FYI you can jump back into the plane if you accidentally press ALT-F2. I think the default key is ALT-F1, the command is "take control of AI controlled aircraft" I think. However on ATAG there is a script that automatically blows holes in your left wing if you ALT-F2 out of the plane to prevent abuse of it to deny someone a kill. So it's not really feasible on the ATAG server. But I'm not sure about other servers.

    I'll try that next time it happens!. So far I've always been close to the ground, so there hasn't been time to try anything, but I'll keep it in mind.

    Re: Show us your cockpit

    Very disappointed that the Martlet only provides for a landing gear interface with 3 positions: down-neutral-up. I was really looking forward to making a crank handle on a potentiometer with 34 turns. At least they did it correctly with the cowling flaps, so I will work on a 4 turn crank for that.

    CloD has much leftover of simple logic of commands of IL-46, why things like sequential magnetos, multiple fuel tank selectorn, Ju 88 flaps operation "turn" only for right, is 1, 2, 3... then 1. Can't be 1, 2, 1 or 3, 2, 1.
