Hi!!

In 2016, I ask Sokol about the possibility of make a new gimbal to Suncom F-15 joystick.

After some advices, I started the project. Not finished yet, but, in progress.

So, I decided to share some pictures.

That's pretty cool. I've been kicking around doing the same thing with my cougar

Hi Ltfransky!

I encourage you to do it. Cougar is a really nice stick!

Try to use aluminum instead of steel. Aluminum will make the thing go less difficult. 1/4" thickness is a good choice.

Hi Haukka81!!

I'm flattered!

Unfortunately, I have very little time to work in this type of activity.
This one take me several hours to do (of the few that I have left).
I would like to do more, but my job and my family do not leave me much time to spare currently.

But, as you live in Finland, you can access great products like:
- VBK (https://flightsimcontrols.com/store/)
- Virpil (https://virpil.com/en/)
- Baur (http://avia-sim.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=758). Review: http://www.mudspike.com/review-brd-n-black-stork-joystick/
