View Full Version : 737 yoke & columns

05-17-2009, 05:14 AM

I have the possibility to get 2 original 737 yokes and columns. The only thing is that I don't have an idea off what type of interfacing I need to make it work.

Off course, I would go for a fully functional type (dual, shaker, auto servo's, ...)

Does anyone has some information on this matter?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. ;)

The input part os the easy thing here. Leo Bodnar card for axes and buttons on the yoke. For shakers you need a relay-card. FDS and phidgets can provide that. Maybe also opencockpits have something.

The servo-driven auto movement on the yokes is the tricky one here. Because there are no exsisting interface alternatives that can handle the power needed to drive the servos. And this will not be RC-servos for sure.

Correct me if I am wrong;)
