Build Guide

Our 3D Printer of choice right now is the CREALITY CR10 v3

Great print & build quality for the price, Silent and Has a bigger Print bed of 300 x300mm. Karl personally recommends it for his sim build.

Karl's Second cheaper choice is the CREALITY ENDER 3 v2. Smaller printer bed of 220 x220mm. But performs excellently and has a purchase price of around $200.

Let me introduce you to my updated Boeing 737 Dual Yoke roll channel. This time the 3d printed gears are replaced with cheap readily available metal gears and the design is mechanically adjustable. This simplifies the build and reduces the need to change anything in fusion 360.

This design utilises 3d printed parts and metal gears to improve the build quality. As seen on my YouTube channel, It works really well and now includes the modification to stop the yokes turning past 90 degrees.

The tighter the gears, the less play in the system. This is critical.

This design requires a print size of 220mm x 220mm.
