    My Cockpit Plan

    I am planning on a cheap, simple, home-built, frame-less cockpit. I want three things: a yoke, a throttle quadrant and rudder pedals. I want all of the above styled to the 737.

    My plan is this:

    • Home-built yoke (around 20)
    • Home-built throttle quadrant (around 20)
    • Saitek Rudder pedals (less than 20)


    Total: ~60.00 GBP

    Any tips?

    Up your price drastically!

    A yoke can be shaped from wood for 20, and old virtual pilot yoke you could get for 20, a throttle quad for 20,mate if you can make 737 styled quads for 20 then I think SimRevo will have a job for you. Saiteks for 20? That wont happen unless some seller on ebay hasnt got a clue what he's selling or know what it does!

    Let me think... Should the throttle be motorised?

    3 days pffftttt.
    I never bid until 3 seconds to go. I have actually won an item with a second to go - that takes some balls.
    Ebay - Bid late with the highest you are prepared to pay, it stops some git deciding to bid again.

    I second you on that. I always bid last second. Win everytime! Saying that, I do have to bid my MAXIMUM everytime, people will only bid what they think the item is worth....

    Thats why I have the ebay app on my phone, i can bid at work lol and on the go...

    I have that on my ipad (yes, I finally treated myself to one).
    I also have a great app in which you point the ipad at a passing plane and it gives you all the details - I wet myself when I found that app anyhoooooo I digress..
    Ebay bargains are getting harder to find and some of the buy-it-now prices are more expensive than a "normal" shop.
