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.

737 SINGLE YOKE HEAD.jpg

This unit was designed to be Primarily 3d printed, however, there are some hardware parts listed that you must obtain to achieve the final product. The Pitch lane incorporates a 12VDC, 50mm stroke actuator. This is used for force feel and autopilot. For the time being a solid rod can be used in place of the unit while we wait for Jim Farrer to complete writing the Arduino sketch to drive the unit. The amount of springs and tension used is down to your own individual needs. I have put Qty 2, 100LB spring on the operating tongues. This is way too much force and your arms will get too tired very quickly. I personally think one would be enough.
This product requires the purchase of the Roll channel to complete the unit.

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