Spoiler automation

Thanks to a deal obtained few months ago with my friend Victor, I have now in hand the autospoiler control unit. I am working to modify the unit to work with a DC motor instead of the stock AC motor generator and replacing one of the stock LVDT with linear motion potentiometer. Me, Philip, Valerio and Victor will work together to develop a  structure based on the stock model to fit aftermarket linear actuators with integrated pots so, since we are all owners of the real Throttle quadrant, we will have it functional as the real one. Here is a first result of the lever movement. there will be an update as i'll find a suitable potentiometer to fit in order to test some sioc code I started to program. Stay tuned!
