    Announcing new product! Yoke base pivot

    Hi all, here is the prototype of my latest product! It is a base mount for Boeing type control columns. Any diameter of column can be attached to it just by drilling two holes through the column tube. The prototype has 50 degress of motion and the gear ratio is 5:1 so it rotates the 10Kohm potentiometer 250 degrees. The pitch angle can be altered by request as it just means a slight alteration to the CNC file. I still have another minor alteration to do to improve the pot mount but basically this is the unit. AUD$125 plus postage to solve the issue of pitch transmission!




    Cheers, Gwyn

    I assume you mean the yoke elbow? I have made some of these before. They would comprise of an elbow with a sleeve/roller bearing/hollow axle with a flange for the yoke and a potentiometer drive. That's a good idea for the next product in the 'generic' category - too easy!!! Back to Ken's TQ for now...

    Cheers Gwyn

    Very nice indeed but you 737 guy's are really getting spoiled . How about a design for a cyclic / Joystick?

    Gwyn,

    Wow, that is impressive and just the right timing for me, as i am just about to build a Yoke. I would also be very interested in the yoke elbow as well.

    How much would they cost to ship to Sweden?

    Best regards
    Ben

    Very cool design Gwyn , simple and effective. If you could do something similar for a cyclic style control I would be at the front of the line for one.
