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.

737 SINGLE YOKE HEAD.jpg

A manual designed trim wheel for the Cessna. It utilises a single 10K ohm pot supported by 3 604ZZ bearings. A very simple build and the unit features a built-in indicator that is run from the trim wheel position. No servo is required. I would suggest connecting the single pot to an Arduino micro with the joystick sketch.
