Nice Phrog


My bad. It looked like a 46 on first glance.
I'm looking to make my own throttle quadrant some day, but I'll probably use a 4 axis CNC Router.
Good luck

You want a grip with more buttons for you "BI8" cyclic?

Just buy a used CH Figherstick in Ebay and use their grip, is 16 buttons + POV HAT, will cost less than 3D print a grip and install switches and HAT - part not available, unless $80+ "military" models.


But, keep in mind that the controller on your "BI8" need support the extra buttons of the new grip, or you end need use a Arduino, Bu0836 for manage extra buttons, what make you cycle two controllers for Windows and games.

In this case became interesting get any of VirPil grips, that is easy connect in Arduino PRO Micro + MMJoy2 firmware for serial protocol for grip Shift Register.

I have a 3d printer so cost is zero.I need a new cyclic.Ch fighter stick is good I need something like that but 80+ bucks not worth because I have the 3d printer.I see today they new Virgil alpha I like it a lot.But I am not going to buy the Virgil base I have mine custom so I will need to modified the cyclic.Fot the first I am looking for a ready stl file if I do not find anything I am going to buy one as you suggest

Well, I have seen some drawings suitable for 3D Printer, but never for a functional multi-buttons grip that don't look a "Frankenstein" toy. The problem is the details, like buttons, trigger and HAT's.

Interesting, but the top part looks out of proportion, no?

It's like that for a couple of reasons. Originally it had a much larger top to the stick which was a lot more modern in appearance.



1) I wanted every button at the top of the stick in reach of my thumb without shifting my grip.



2) I wanted it to look more like a non-US stick from the 60's or 70's era than something from a modern US jet.
