Wow, this is a really nice looking piece of kit!
I know it has been several years since this thread has been touched but what can I say, I'm really impressed.
VO101MMaister, if this design isn't going to go into production would you consider open sourcing your design? I'm currently investigating the possibility of building a sim-pit for a glider and am looking for a way to make my own control column and what can I say, this design looks FREAKING AWESOME!!!
All the best,
