    Hi Dave,
    That's a top class job there, mate.

    I think if you got one of those nice 737 yoke heads from Ricardo at Throttletek.com, you'd have a beautiful, professionally finished yoke.

    Re: home made tq and yoke

    Hi Gary
    Many thanks for your kind reply.
    if you need any help over the course of your tq build just email me at davemuir5@gmail.com
    or through mycocpit.org
    Today i was on a simulator using a 4000 pound motorised tq through project majenta and the only difference
    from my home built one was that my one wasnt motorised which can be done in the future -
    all i can say is never give up and try to be patient-------
    cheers for now

    Re: home made tq and yoke

    Hello Dave, thanks for the video,it all looks great,im just trying to get my head round dual linked yokes and am progressing okay after watching goldmembers video many times,can i ask what the 2 springs do? are they there to return the column to neutral? i have also fitted gas rams of 80n force but instead of one on top of the other i have fitted them opposite each other, they seem to work fine but there is no centering hence why i ask the question. thanks in advance.

    Re: home made tq and yoke

    hi stinger
    sorry for the delay in replying
    yes you are correct about the springs it self centers to 8 degrees forward as the real 737 does
    the 2 gas struts on the side should be 200nm each i fitted 100 nm each and its not enough as i had a go
    on a real 737 sim yesterday.
    having 2 struts to the rear is exactly the same as having one on the front and back but my way has an
    added advantage in that you have more space to accomodate rudder pedals thats the only reason and its
    more compact
    also regarding the springs when you pull the yoke back the 200nm resistance is felt and when you push forward to
    the nuetral it feels easier as in the real aircraft
    hope this helps mate
    cheers for now and have a nice day
    dave
