    Building a Yoke

    Does anyone have any experience in making Yokes because I am looking for a circuit diagram of the electronics needed.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated

    thanks in advance

    There are four switches on a Boeing yoke. Dual momentary trim switches (ON) OFF (ON), A single momentary pushbutton NC switch for the AP disconnect, and a momentary NO PTT switch. They are wired the same as any other simple switch.

    Here is the schematic for the trim switches:
