  1. Check out my new Spitfire throttle, with full control of throttle, airscrew plus switchable 'off/rich mix' levers - all constructed from steel and aluminium. The dimensions are as near to the original aircraft as possible, and it uses the excellent Leo Bodnar USB controller with two potentiometers and two microswitches for full control...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJZ2lj_xlbk
  2. Thank you - I have just got hold of a Spitfire throttle quadrant so am busy working on a USB interface for that... will post soon. Thanks!
  3. And just thought I'd include a link to a short Youtube video of the joystick in action...
  4. I have just finished this full size flightsim joystick, made from steel and brass, loosely based around the beautiful Royal Aircraft Factory SE5 stick (first flight around 1917). The brass paddles are connected to microswitches which are wired to the Leo Bodnar control board for the main joystick control. Feel free to get in touch with any questions...
  5. I just wanted to share my design of a full size aircraft joystick based around the IL2 Sturmovik WWII fighter. It is mainly built from steel and aluminium, and uses a potentiometer on each axis connected to the excellent Leo Bodnar control board. I have added motorcycle steering dampers to each axis which gives the stick a more realistic feel, and am currently looking at building other designs, especially early aircraft types, e.g. WWI / WWII . Feel free to get in touch and ask any questions... Thanks!
