Shark Pit, acemark


Recommended Posts

Damn fine work on that collective head Mark. Are they hand painted labels? I cant even write legibly let alone paint!

Given the time and money invested in the pit do you fly anything other than the shark in it? Or do you have another masterpiece lurking in the background?

Thanks for the drawing (and photos) they all help.

Thanks Dave.

 

Hand painted, yes. White acrylic flat, For house and trim.Thined and applyed with a bamboo BBQ skewer. Head mount magnifyer and one letter at a time. Mistakes are erased quickly with a damp swab. I practised for a week before I did My cyclic, so I was experiance when I did the collective.

 

I have most of the moduls and only the one pit. Flying time has been reduced as a result of pit building these last few years. I have flowen a P51 with a collective :) but at this time The KA-50 is my first pick.

I see a need for hall sensor info regarding mounting.

Here are some pics of my rudder pedals hall sensor.

 

hall_sensor_002.jpg

One sensor,Allegro A1321 analog hall efects sensor.

Two Rare earth magnets gluded to plywood disk cut with a hole saw.

Full left pedal . Sensor does not touch magnet.

center position. The gap between the magnets is 1.25".

 

hall_sensor_004_Copy.jpg

Full right pedal.

The magnets are mounted with same poles facing each other, so they are trying to push away from each other.

Did you by any chance measure the voltage range for this setup? I've tried a number of different hall sensor configurations and can't seem to get a decent enough range to provide the appropriate sensitivity. Thanks.

Hi Uh1fan.

I didnt check voltage.

Im using Brydlings board B-256A13. Its analoge inputs read 0-5 volts.

I check the output with Windows Device Manager, under HID .

Your limited to about 1", the magnets max distance from sensor.

Test this with your sensor on bench ,magnet in hand,to see when its moved too far away . try turning the sensor in the feild ,you will see sweat spots .

I got better results when the sensor lined up with the edge of the magnet instead of the center of the magnet.

Good luck.

Mark.
