F18C warthog HOTAS fingerlift MOD


Recommended Posts

Yes Shapeways will be expensive, but it’s a trade off. For the amount I spend on this kind of thing, it’s better than buying a printer.

 

Looking forward to you releasing the new fingerlifts.

the right side is nearly finished, was a bit more complicated there. as expected.

i will try to get some quotes for getting those parts printed out by a professional service, lets see how much they request for multijetfusion nylon quality.

the new version is really hard to print on a home printer, i would say nearly impossible to get a satisfying print.

i already have a quote for all the parts, screws, springs and will offer ~25 sets here soon.

 

they are printed as well but in MJF technology by a printing service,

i was kinda shocked when i got quotes from popular services but at the end i will be able to sell them at

~50€ completly assembled, ready to mount.

thats more expensive than was in hope but still 100% cheaper than ordering a set from Shapeways or similar

shipment is always and only done mondays,

 

as i just learned that diffrent batches of Thrustmasters HOTAS are not exactly accurate in dimensions, and or the built in fingerlift noses are often worn out i suggest to start mounting my MOD without trying to find the sweetspot for pushtrough (as shown in the video).

 

(of course u can sand or trim the leading edges of the fingerlifts noses so they raise themselves easier for pushtrough, at your own risk)

i will update the dropbox repository this weekend, but as i already mentioned , this noninvasive version is very hard to print on consumer printers. i do only own a fdm printer and didnt succeed printing a working noninvasive on it.

btw. i will start working on a V2 this weekend, there are some weak spots at the actual design i have to address.

 

eg

 

1. right clamp, too thin at the corner, so brakes

 

2. right clamp, distancer needed to stop from overtightning the screw

 

3. noses broke to easy, i can t make them thicker but changeable, maybe a metal version for them as well

 

4. right clamp stops lever 1-2mm prior full AB if not mounted max raised

 

5. left lever can be moved to idle when applying some force, (i may let it as is to prevent it from braking)

 

6. i will try out another printing quality/service for better durabillity

 

for those who tried this MOD, suggestions welcome

exchangeable nose, 2screws needed, adds some material-fexibility and repairability here

improvement is done and STLs are at the printing service to get a protoype,

with Version 2 i hope to have all downsides/problems fixed,

i managed to order some sort of different Nylon at the printing service lets see how resilient those get now
