    How-to vid of cheap dual linked yokes

    As promised. Any resemblence with shows like 'how it's made' or 'wheeler dealers' is a coincidence.

    Red face Re: How-to vid of cheap dual linked yokes

    Thanks my contact from Netherlands!

    I have a captains seat from 737 and flying officers from 767.

    Now can you get me replica yokes for my Empire, this is a Shorts built a/c and the yokes differ a little but unless somebody out there knows of bits from an Empire Class C Flying Boat I dont expect originals.
    Nearest would be those you use, can you direct me to source?

    I think I can make a decent copy of your double yoke system and you have given me encouragement to get on with the flight deck.

    kind regards "flymee"

    Re: How-to vid of cheap dual linked yokes

    The salad bowls are just cosmetic, they act as the dust covers. Reason that there's a thread end going under the rain pipe is that the bowls tend to collapse after you cut out the half circles that go over the pipe. The thread ends have nuts inside the bowls that push them outward until they are round again. Beware, cutting the holes so that the bowls pivot around their own center is a brain teaser!

    The structural strength is not in the rain pipe but in the steel tubes inside. It's just a U-construction. We bolted them so we could take it apart again but you can also weld it. Of cause the tubes are bolted to the rain pipe because those are the ones that rotate inside the 'MDF-hole' for the pitch movement. But this doesn't take much force so 10 screws around the whole U is enough.

    Re: How-to vid of cheap dual linked yokes

    A W E S O M E ! ! !

    You guys just solved a problem I've been thinking about for years! KISS - keep it simple, stupid! Vidar, do you get the message???

    This is certainly the way to go! Easy, affordable and could be made very realistic in an easy way. Better warm up the MIG welder...

    PS: here's an idea for the top cover on the drainpipes. Make a mold out of styrofoam, the dense, fine-grained type used for underground insulation. Glue together a block with epoxy resin, shape 2 + 2 halves. Apply glass fiber cloth and epoxy resin. Epoxy the halves together, reinforcing on the inside with glass fiber cloth. Sand, use filler to make a smooth surface and then paint. That's the way I plan to do it. And now you've got the idea too.

    PS: remember to use breathing protection when working with foam (sanding and shaping) and epoxy!
