Default Latest time sink

Have been off bike shit lately, at least in the area of getting shit done, so I've been screwing around in the shop building this hybrid flight stick for DCS. First thing I used the tube bender to make, actually.





X-65F force-sensing (non-moving) HOTAS on left, older and in this case partially busted X52 on the right.

Some twiddling with the lathe and the tube bender later...

Taped up for testing. :P





If it actually works well and I don't hate it, I figure I'll make a little fiberglass shroud for the center section of the stick to protect the X65's board. Gonna put a bayonet connector in the data cable and have it plug into the board internally with no strain or movement on the stock connector.

Tomorrow I'll slap together something to mount it to and see how she goes in DCS.

Also considering turning this thing's spare throttle axis into a collective controller for helo shit.

K, missed the flight I was supposed to be on this afternoon - now flying out tomorrow morning, which gives me a little time to fuck with this a bit more. Plugged everything in and set it up - holy fuck! This thing is fucking awesome compared to a normal stick. Precision X20 million. Can line up for strafing in my Harrier like nothing. I'm sure it'll get even better when I start playing with the sensitivity curves etc. Centering force is low, of course, with the longer lever. I've seen dudes use RC shocks before, gonna pick up some of those cheap and see what I come up with.

I have no doubt that sometime down the road I'll rationalize my way into buying a Virpil or CKB base, but this is a MASSIVE step up from a stock X52.

Having used this thing off and on for a few days, I'm gonna redo the extension sometime soon to improve the ergos-be as simple as bending up a new piece of tube and transferring the fittings over. Gotta get out to the shop tomorrow to start cutting wood for winter so maybe screw with it then.
