    Hey rnzoli, have you considered this kind of PCB stand-off?

    No drilling required, and of course no insulation either.

    There are also ones which lock in place through case holes:

    Interesting link, never seen them before
    But I am a bit worried about their adhesive nature. In the violently shaking environment of an FFB stick, I am more trustful towards the good old screw and nut type of stand-off All fittings must be rock solid and tight.

    The white rubber sheet you see in my pics is actually not needed, but I placed them there to avoid wire-cuts, soldering materials, loose screws etc. go underneath the PCB by any chance, during the construction. I could have removed them after all was finished, but I didn't bother

    At last i was able to shoot some photos of my pedals. I have just upgraded the braking mechanism from springs to spring-rods. It feel tight and firm now!

    How did you map the two sliders to left and right throttle? I haven't seen anything in IL2 to do that. I have seen the buttons to select enginers individually, but not a way to permanently assign engines to each slider.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Unfortunately, il2 does not model separate throttles. There is an addon program to do this but it doesn't support all throttles, read more here.

    This can be done through many different ways.
    <UL TYPE=SQUARE>
    <LI> Through Shinjiro's way

    <LI> Through a simple hack in settings.ini of your installation. You assign both axes to control "POWER", and then create a program/script that presses "select engine #1"/"select engine #2" when you move one of the throttles.

    <LI> Through GLOVEPIE. You create a script in GLOVEPIE in which you assign POWER to both axes. Whenever you move one axis, the program presses "select engine #1"/"select engine #2". You can read very detailed instructions and find working scripts here: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/foru...921049526#2921049526[/list]
