Throttle Quadrant Module
The Project45 Throttle Quadrant Module replica is as close as you will find to the real thing! This TQ Module has many working features and is a must have if you are serious about building a Lear45 simulator!
This throttle quadrant module is 100% made from scratch and contains no real aviation parts! Most of the parts were made with a CNC machine. The throttle knobs and the Spoiler knob have been laser engraved. Dry transfers were used on the Parking Brake handle.
On the bottom side of the throttle module is a wire management board that helps keep the wiring coming out of the TQ module neat and routed to appropriate interface cards.
- Dual Throttle full range and APR detents
- Dual Fuel cutoff switches
- Flaps lever with locking percent gates
- Spoilers lever with position gates
- Reverse Thrust levers and switches
- Locking Parking Brake (turn left or right)

Parking Brake Assembly
The parking brake assembly by Alpha Juliet is designed to work with the Project45 Throttle Quadrant Module if you are looking to build one on your own. Otherwise, they are included with the Project45 TQ Module.
The main structure of the parking brake assemblies are made of 100% steel and will never fail no matter how hard you pull on them. They are designed to pull and lock either to the left or to the right the same way the real ones do!
All parking brake assemblies will come with the EMERGENCY / PARKING BRAKE Dry Transfer decals installed with a clear coat finish to protect the lettering. A micro switch is also included to detect the position of the brake so that it can be easily interfaced within FSUIPC.
List Price: $175
Elevator Disconnect Box
The Elevator Disconnect Box by Alpha Juliet mounts to the port side of the TQ pedestal. The handle can be pulled but is non functional as far as mechanically separating the left and right elevator on the lower column system.
However, this assembly does have a “pulling” action to mimic separating the left and right elevators. The elevator disconnect handle is also equipped with a micro switch for possible future modeling in the EICAS message system via Flightdecksoft.
All Elevator Disconnect handles will come with the ELEV DISC Dry Transfer decals installed with a clear coat finish to protect the lettering.
List Price: $195

Dzus Fastener Replica Kit
The Dzus Fastener Replica Kit includes 70 pieces (6-32) to cover all the Dzus attachment points in the Lear45 cockpit. The kit is designed to replicate the look of the real Dzus fastener but not the locking action.
Each Dzus replica will need to be finished using a Dremel tool by mounting the Dzus replica to the spindle and spinning it while shaping the head with a file, giving it a rounded off edge and of course painted with Model Masters Gunship Gray. The second photo shows several Dzus Fastener Replicas holding a few panels in place!
List Price: $55
This panel mounts on the center pedestal and holds the Hobbs Hour Meter in place. (Hobbs Meter not included but can be upon request)
When shopping for a Hobbs Meter, make sure the operating voltage is 12 volts unless you are doing something different.
