View Full Version : Metal Hawk simulator repairs

14th October 2006, 05:18 PM
Hi my name is Greg. I have a metal hawk helicopter simulator, 1988 namco jamma. I am having a few problems with the simulation side of the machine.
I find that the front drive goes through its cycle and centers itself but the rear drive only goes half way through the cycle and does not center. Therefore, it does not go into game mode and it just sits on the angle, bottoming out.I suspect a problem in the board. Just curious if anyone out there has a manual or technical data on the machine or some way to identify parts on the simulator driver board. Any other help regarding this would also be appreciated.
Thanks greg

ahhhh, Metal Hawk...Namco's Thunderblade clone (and the only helicopter game better than TB, IMHO).
