Hi,

finally everything is in place. I have used the system for a few hours and I am very happy:) It feels really solid and super accurate.
Later I will make a small platform for the throttle, and keyboard.

wow.. amazing work!!!!!
i hope to show off my finished product come january.

i think i have 2-3 weeks till i finish my cyclics, then i will proceed to build torque pedals..

by the way, im not sure if your devices are stand along.. AVOID having all the units (pedal, joystick throttle/collective) stuck together in one platform...

my previous build was a platform. it sucked taking it apart.
i am making my setup modular... including the seat where if i didnt have no controllers connected, i can still enjoy sitting in the chair by itself..

your stick.. looks effin amazing. only con i have about your set up, is that your stick is way to far from the chair.. 3-4+ hours of flying, your arm will get tired from extension.
(i could be wrong in which you have referenced actual cockpit designs)

in my helicopter setup, im trying to put my joystick a few inches from my crotch...

but pit building is trial and error... wink

i was reasearching youtube for stick placement...

i recommend you to move the stick up towards your crotch to end up between your knees..





DONT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID..

alright.
in my setup, my joystick would be next to my crotch in pulled back position, in my thigh before my knees when centered, and between my knees when the joystick is full forward.. (im setting my stick to have a 6" +/- deflection)

I think that is pretty confy setup, and very similar to the modern helicopter and sport aircraft layouts. I am flying motor gliders and the stick is placed pretty much where you described.

My control stick is placed a bit further forward because of the limitation of the seat I use.
I could use a bent column of course, but the current config is quite ok. It is also very similar to the common ww2 era warbird layout.

i was actually looking for that photo!

i saw that photo in the eagle dynamics / DCS forums a few months ago, but was unable to find it again.
my search came up with fa-18 seat dimensions

it didnt help me much, im pretty much going by trial and error to see what height and seat angle to make my seat base.
i hope to start my seats in 2-3 weeks!
