Sinous,


I'm not a rotor head but noticed several cyclic stick projects on Thingiverse while browsing for flight simulator files. A search on Thingiverse for "cyclic" will return several hits. Here are a couple of examples Thingiverse:

Also check out http://hc625ma.org/ for a lot of good info on DIY helicopter controls.

None of this in drawings in Thingiverse solve your need for "tons of buttons".

The 1st is B-5 grip, trigger and 1 press button.

The 3rd is B-8 grip with thumb-stick in place of HAT, plus trigger and 3 buttons.

The thing is that even 3D Print is free for you, the HAT switches, buttons needed for complete the grip can end costing more than get a used F-16 Fighterstick in eBay and adapt in your cyclic.

The most affordable know commercial "HAT switch" is APEM (CH) that cost $45 and only have one cap option, but you can 3D print different caps (see bellow).

https://www.digikey.com/product-deta...289-ND/2063280

You need 2 or 3 HAT's for have a grip with functions similar do CH F-16, Warthog, VPC grips (I don't list VKB grips because they are "Apple") = $ 135.

You can 3D Print and assembly "HAT switch" a guy did a nice variation of caps:

But then you need a grip drawing optimized for fit this HAT's.

Try to find a really old CH Flightstick Pro with a "gameport" instead of USB. Why? Because obsolete and so very cheap on used market. I just picked one up a few weeks ago for $10.

BUT... the grip is sweet. Comes with a trigger switch, three thumb buttons, and an 8 way hat switch.

Now take it apart, change whatever buttons and hat switches you want, and now attach it to whatever stick you like. No printing required. Could fit 3 or even 5 of the hat switches on it, IMO.

An option, take this B-8 grip drawing and modify their top part, allowing fit 2 of 3 HAT's, and place a HAT in left side - middle of grip, under thumb button.
