The Boeing 737 Single Control Column is Here!

It's been a fantastic weekend here in Brunei. I have achieved so much since upgrading to an 0.8mm nozzle. One of those being the prototyping and testing of the Boeing 737 Single Control Column. This design needed no adjustments and worked the first time. So incredibly pleased with how this turned out!

The force required to return the Control column can be simply set by adding springs to the Force trim tongues:

The whole unit can be electrically motored by the actuator to the desired trim position. This actuator can also be used for autopilot movement. Regardless of the actuator position, the force feel tongues allow the control column to be moved regardless.
