I noticed that in a couple of posts ago, you said "I'm glad the effort is worth something:)". Well I can assure you that from my perspective you have done an absolutely amazing job. I have been stricken with the 'spanish dancer' and I'm having daily radiation treatment, this project has really got me up and going again with flight sim and has taken my mind off my ailment.

I have tamed 'the wild cat' by connecting all of the pcb's as you suggested and I have included a switch to cut out the sensor. I have also changed the cog on the elevator pot with one that I found in my dead printer junk and reinforced it. I also reinforced the aileron motor bracket. The purchase of FS-Force 2 and the Yoke add-on seems to be  a good investment or will be when I finally get it set right.

I have really enjoyed doing this project and I sincerely thank you.

Regards,

Chris

Hi Chris

Thanks for your kind words. I hope you're lot better now. Things like this keep me well above the water though:)
I'm glad you sorted the wild cat problem. To be honest I'm not very impressed with the printed pitch cog wheel my self as the teeth are very fine for low res printer. I'll try to source nylon replacement that can be obtained on eBay. Would you mind to share some pics of your build? I'm really curious how you guys managing to reproduce and upgrade the yoke;)
FS Force is a great add on however it will probably never support Aerofly FS2. I really need to find solution how to get FFB working with this sim. AFS2 has stunning performance in VR and whole development is goin just the right direction.

Best regards
Jay

Hi Jay,

First of all- your project is absolutely amazing; thanks a lot for your hard work!

I'm currently waiting for the last batch of parts from eBay to start putting together a "clone"- with some differences, like AS5600 magnetic contactless sensors on both axis and metal guide rail supports mounted on a base plate. While you are working on more detailed plans, is it possible to get the external dimensions of the yoke case as a reference? From the Fusion 360 model I'm getting something like 230x135x360 mm- is it close?

Thanks again and best regards,
Sergey

Thanks Sergey

The Fusion 360 preview allows for precise measuring (I double checked now) and it reads 230x134x358mm.
I would be really glad to see your results here at "showcase your pit" thread Wink

Regards Jay
