These switches differ from the ones listed in the previous page, as although they look like a normal two position ON-OFF toggle switch, they are actually held in position magnetically.
Under certain circumstances they will reset into the off position, and the toggle will actually psychically move itself.
For example, say the Anti Collision Light Switch on the lighting control panel is flicked to ON, however a short time later the master lighting mode switch on the throttle is moved to OFF, the Anti Collision Lights will turn off.
The switch on the lighting control panel is magnetic, and moves itself to OFF. This avoids confusion, as two switches controlling the same system could be set differently.
The real A-10C has seven (7) magnetically held toggles switches throughout the cockpit.
The real A-10C uses the Honeywell 25ET61-T switch, and although they are available for purchase they are VERY expensive (over a thousand AUD per switch at genuine government prices).
This video explains the full building process in great detail!
Here is a list of the parts I used. As always, I have no financial interest or links to any of these sellers, I am only listing them to show what I used to build mine. Shop aroud to find the best prices!
