Question Gazelle Collective Dimensions

Heya folks,
I'm looking to make a collective controller for DCS (fed up of using my x-52 throttle), and wondered if anyone (Devs?) had the dimensions for the Gazelles collective (Base, lever and head - dimensioned drawings would be a godsend).

Ta muchly!

Yes an actual collective input makes sim flying much better especially in VR.

I don't have the actual dimensions* for the Gazelle collective but I loosely modeled mine based on approximating angular rotation and and how it appears in the VR cockpit. The button box is entirely my own design as I just wanted a fairly generic Heli SIM PIT.

Here is my prototype, still a WIP

Hi Frenchie. You can PM gillesdrone on this forum. He built a Gazelle cockpit entirely with real Gazelle parts, including collective, panel, NADIR... The only catch is you have to speak a little bit of French so I hope you deserve your nickname!

Thanks a lot for this! I will see where I can get with this. Time to dust off the phrasebook methinks...
