Thinking about building a DIY flight stick, engine quadrant, and rudder pedals

Recommended Posts

Title says it all...


I've been flying in Prepar3D v3.4 for a good while flying only, and ONLY the A2A P-51D, both Civilian and Military.


Problem is, a CH Products Flightsim Yoke and Mouse as Rudder does not suffice and makes flying her quite a challenge. I've been thinking about this for a while, but I always run into stumps because I barely have knowledge on electronics nor any knowledge on rigging it up (alongside the simple arm-to-potentiometer).


Thing is, I'd like to build my own flight stick, engine control quadrant, and rudder pedals for my simming adventures. I prefer to have the engine quadrant and flight stick framed after the P-51D Mustang itself, and while I'm confident building and rigging the engine quadrant would be relatively easy, I find the stick and pedals a bit difficult.


I'm open to any ideas and suggestions from those who have indulged in building DIY controllers. Until then it's back to flying with the yoke and dreaming about having a DIY setup.

Thanks il88pp!


Kenster1092, I use a Saitek stick and rudder pedals but I did build my own throttle.


Here are before and after pics. If you have any questions, just ask.
