Rack and Custom Mounting
The GF-TQ6 is designed for direct installation into the GoFlight GF-AC Full Height Rack or the Flight Deck Console (FDC) enclosures. Four 6-32 x 3/8” nylon thumbscrews are provided for this purpose. If you wish to mount the GF-TQ6 into a custom cockpit, threaded 6-32 holes are provided on the bottom and rear panels of the throttle enclosure for custom mounting applications.
Flight Deck Console Mounting
When mounting the GF-TQ6 into the Flight Deck Console, GoFlight recommends that the GF-TQ6 be installed in the “corner” portion of the console. In this position, the GF-TQ6 will cover both vertical module bays and the two horizontal bays furthest forward. However, you can mount the unit in any desired location using the threaded holes located on the bottom and rear panels of the throttle enclosure.
To install the GF-TQ6 into the recommended location in the Flight Deck Console, do the following:
- Remove any GF-AC cockpit control modules that may be mounted in the upper angled portion of the Flight Deck Console. This provides easy access to the rear panel of the GF-TQ6 for attachment of mounting screws and for USB cable connection.
- Using two the 6-32 x 3/8” mounting thumbscrews provided, feed the screws through the top left and right mounting rail holes in the vertical bay section of the console.
- Align the back panel of the GF-TQ6 enclosure with the mounting screws, and tighten the screws until the GF-TQ6 enclosure is securely fastened to the console. A similar procedure can be used to mount the GF-TQ6 in other locations in the console. There are four 6-32 threaded mounting holes on the bottom panel of the GF-TQ6 enclosure for this purpose.
NOTE: When tightening the GF-TQ6 mounting thumbscrews, be careful not to over tighten the screws as it is possible to strip the threads in the mounting holes and/or break the mounting screws if excessive force is applied.
