This page is split into three main sections:

Parts Guide

Build Guide

These units can be produced on a standard 3D printer bed size of 220 x 220mm.

My 3D Printer of choice right now is the ENDER 3 v2

Great print & build quality for the price and Karl personally recommends it for his sim build.

General Information:

Let me introduce you to my Boeing 737 Dual Yoke roll channel fully 3d printed system. It works, it's tested, and I love it!

I'll state right now, I have no idea how long these gears will last, but they are so strong due to there size. Smoother operation is achieved by using a finer nozzle. 0.4mm max at 100 % infill. This takes time and is a pain in the bum. Just remember if you fly for a few months constantly and they wear out, reprint the part. The tighter the gears, the less play in the system. This is critical.
