Boeing 737 Single control Column
This page is split into three main sections:
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.
This page lists all the hardware and electrical components required to build the Boeing 737 Single control Column for your sim.
Designed to be as simple and cheap as possible. This can be achieved with the use of a 3d printer, some hardware and a piece of PVC pipe.
This unit is designed to have effective force trim/feel by returning the unit to the centre or set datum point by the trim actuator. The trim actuator is controlled by the trim switches on the yoke. If you do not want electric trim, Use a piece of bar to hold the unit instead.
The unit can be driven by the rim switches, but if you would like more control over the speed of operation and wiring simplicity, I have included the optional speed controller. This is rated at max of 3A, the same max draw of the 150mm Actuator.
