MIP Gear Lever

The gear lever completes the face plate of my MIP panel. I created a design that is really easy for you to build. The used micro switches are glued in place with hot glue so that you can place them where you need them depending on the type you are using.

The locking mechanism I realized doesn't match the real one accurat. It holds the handle in the down position when the plane is on ground. The real one seems to let you move the handle to the OFF position too. I will realize this in a later version.
