Can anyone please help me with a little project I’m trying to solve.
I am new to any form of programming and haven’t touched electronics since leaving school 15 years ago and have pretty much forgot everything that i was taught!
I am currently restoring a Warbird cockpit and would like to get the instrument panel indication lights working with there relevent switches, i was pointed in the way or running it through an Arduino but not sure where to start!
The current switches and lights i would like to work are the a 3 way toggle switch that controls a light for bomb bay doors open light and a bomb bay door closed light, 4 lights for the landing Gear control lever.
The bomb bay doors i would like a 5 second delay before the lights turn on.
The landing gear is slightly more complicated, there is one green light, one amber light and 2 red lights.
The green light needs to be on when the lever in in the down position and the yellow night need to be on in the intermediate or up position but only for 12 second when in the up position and the red lights need to come on when the gear lever is in the intermediate or up position but only when the throttle is in the idle position, yup its complicated.
i will need to add some form of position switch in for the landing control lever and throttle as these were removed long before we got the cockpit.
i would also like to add other things on in the future i.e, more lights and some sound when the engine start switch is selected.
If anyone can help that would be fantastic.
