Mike Mittelhäuser   Senior Electronic Design Engineer

 

         After my aviation carreer  as avionic engineer and commercial pilot I worked

       for my own aircraft sales company on the airport Essen Mülhem in Germany .        

       In the middle of the 90ties I grounded M ittelhäuser  E lektronik S ystem Engineering

       We offer customer pretend hardware design service specialize in telemetry and

                                                     remote systems, products are sold in Europe, Russia and in Arabian countries.

 

                10 years ago  my interest growing  more and more in  Simulator Software  because  the  MS Flight Simulator 

            software opened new horizons to build low cost Simulators for aeroclubs and privat aviation enthusiasts.

            The challenge was to create an easy modulair design without any restrictions on a large scale  payable

            for everybody without electronic experience and software programming.

            Only a Little bit skill to solder a wire on a switch or make a clean hole in  wooden material is sufficient.

 

                                                             

                                                               Partnership offer 

                                                  to  expliotate  rental low cost Simulators 

 

           Looking for an Investor / Partnership to construct light aviation simulators for renting  by aeroclubs ,

           airfield pubs and flightschools. 

          The Investment pro Simulator will be approx. € 6.000 and annuited in less than a  year .

          A local provider can be the pub owner , he sells sheap flighthours and get commision from it .

          The local flightinstructor gives IFR lessons and the club takes minimum flighthours for a year.

           There are a lot of  future expliotation possibilities  by thousend of aerofields in Europe.

           I have the knowledge and material but cannot do this Job alone, it is a challenge

           for  persons who are interested  in aviation and look for a future existance .

            

        

 

 

            

            


PRINCIPLE  OF THE   MES-ENGINEERING  SIMULATOR  ADD ON SYSTEM 

 

The System  converts   Mouse & Keyboard commands in realistic fitted  Switches -Rotaries- Buttons -Potmeters etc. commands.  

It works on any  game software installed by the user , no software Intervention and copyright infringement of the installed software.

You click on the virtual switch or button on the Monitor Screen ,a small window shows your pre selected channel and the selected

hardware switch fitted on your cockpit takes it over and saved it for later simulator actions   .    

The same procedure for analog, choice an analog channel duty   example Trottle  your potmeter takes over the power control of

your game aircraft-ship-train-car software etc.

The Server how it works and configurate the 240 channels

Controlling all Switches-Buttons-Rotaries-Potmeters-Trottles-Rudder-Elevators-Brakes-Trimming- Autopilot- Flaps

 

                                                                              via only 1 USB port to your PC


All channels react on low activ pulses  pin 1 till 240  parted in 24 channels by the 10 Sub-D  connectors

If you ground the pin of your choice a LED bit word appears conform of the number of the grounded pin.

This bitword ( 8bits ) driven the Core of the Server Arduino UNO  µP Module to create a Software command

over the USB bus to your Flight Sim PC in duty.

6 added Analog channels  parted in 2 sub-D Connectors  reserved for Trottle & Rudder/diff.Brakes duties

2 single 5 Pins connectors  usable for  analoge duties  of your choice  see later in the next capital FSUIPC commands

At least 3 Jumpers with 3 Leds  selected the Board duty number in case if more Serverboards are active.

There are 2 power Modus  direct over the USB Bus 5V 500mA  or 10V..30V -3Amp 5V via the board installed DC-DC Converter


Example how the digital part of the Server connect your Cockpit hardware  via the  Distributer modules to your Server

                                                                            Extension to 480 digital channels

 

You see how easy you can connect all Rotaries- Switches &  Buttons material for your designed Cockpit construction

                                                                   The Analog Part of the Server

 

The Server has  6 Analog Channels available for Trottle-Rudder- Elevator- Prop etc. duties  controlled

by simple Potmeters .

2 channels for General use  see later the Software part FSUIPC in the capital  Software Configuration

2 channels are reserved for Trottle control  (Sub-D09 connector 1 )  Example construct your Trottles

2 channels  for Rudder / diff.Brakes control ( Sub-D09 connector 2 ) Example construct your Brakes

CHAPTER II

 

SOFTWARE  INSTALLATION & CONFIGURATION

 

The Server is the core of the system ,we deliver the hardware with a connected programmed Arduino module ready to use.   

A second program called Flightsimulator Controller 1.3  does the configuration Job.

You can take it from our website with the user instructions, it  is easy to install.

Connect the USB cable between the Server and your PC and start the installation procedure.

A configuration window will be appeared.

The System is ready to receive your fitted Cockpit hardware design connections.

                                                      Recommendation who I did it

 

Buy 2 tables 125 x 75 cm from IKEA and fix it together

If you plan a Pedestal buy a cupboard from IKEA place it  in front in the middle of the tables .

You have already the base construction material for your Simulator  approx € 100,--

HOW TO MAKE   FRONT PANEL MONITOR MASK PLATES FOR YOUR SIMULATOR

 

You need  2 software tools  : www.service.hardcopy.de 

 Any photoshop software  to process your frontplate

 I used ausschneiden 3.0 photoshop tool

1) Make a hardcopy  from the Monitor view  

2) Process this view with your photoshop software

3) Configurate the size of the hardcopy  that it  covered  the active area of your Monitor  19" Monitor  30x38,5 cm

4) Transparant the picture parts instruments  lighting buttons , text etc. to see it through the frontplate or cut area.

5) Make a copy and send it to a printshop company to print it on an minimum  5mm..8 Acryl or soft plastic plate .

 

 

  Hardcopy Monitor                            Transparant  Acryl  glass  5..8mm      Cut out contour of any material 

 to progress  copy  1 or 2                   let black area transparant                   recommend soft plastic  5..8mm
