    Yoke wheel

    I would like to built my own control yoke.
    I have to find plastic yoke wheel to fit with aluminium tube.
    Only found Simkits at 85 Euros.
    There is other source with more aircraft choice, and possibly cheaper?
    Thank you for help
    Marco

    Hi Marco
    look in the downloads section where I've uploaded a file that shows you how to make your own yokes quite cheaply. Although the file I've uploaded is for a 767 you can easily adapt it to your own dimensions as it's the construction principals that are important. Fibre glass alone is not rigid enough and doesn't feel right. by adding the copper tube which is resdily available and cheap it gives an easy to construct, cable friendly, solid ,feelgood construction.
