The ultimate printer I can recommend is the Bamboo Labs X1 carbon with AMS if you have deep pockets. ($1200). It's a massive leap forward in 3D printing, with excellent quality and impressive speeds. Its pretty much press print and go as the software and hardware do the calibration before each print. This printer will not manage the larger parts and you are going to need the  CREALITY CR10 v3, which is my second choice of printer.

This was the 3rd version of the 737 Throttle Quadrant designed for the 3D-printed SIM community. This third iteration is much improved, featuring a stronger, simpler and more cost-effective design. Instead of using a Leo Bodnar board, which can cost up to 25 Euros, an Arduino Micro Pro/Leobodnar interface board costing only 3-6 Euros can now be used. It took several weeks to perfect this design, and I showcased the final product in my YouTube video:

The unit boasts several features, including an operational speed brake lever, dual independent thrust levers, dual independent thrust reverser levers with potentiometers, a flap lever with gated guards, a bell cut-out switch, A/T Disengage switches, TOGO switches, an operational detente brake lever, a working park brake light, operational fuel cutoff levers, operational stab switches x 2, and friction brakes on the main levers.

This unit can be built on the Ender 3 build plate, which has a bed size of 220 x 220mm.
