Hi there

After thinking about it and being on and off simming the last few years things have finally managed to come close to completion.

Now i got a ms ffb2 with a warthog handle, its dampened for a better feel. Got a working cyclic with throttle and more switches to be hooked up. Just finished my prototype anti torque pedals!

Later i hope to change the Warthog handle to a plastic one so i can use a proper shaft. I also want to fix the pedals in metal but these will do for now. Everything needs to be painted too and... cable management!

here are some pics

Got a couple of questions :)

How would one best describe the feel of the cyclic, collective and pedals?
Are they hard, very soft? Range of motion, i understand the Huey has a lot of deflection compared to more modern ones?

What are the dimensions for the Huey pedals?

I like to see another who has the ability to just rip open a stick and think How can I improve this...


Be interesting to see how it develops.

I have a few hours of stick time in a variety of helicopters and as you suggested it varies quite a bit from aircraft to aircraft. I would have to say that most I have tried had a bit of a hydraulic resistance feel in addition to some vibration and Gyroscopic feel? I have tried the same dampers as the ones in your pictures. Do you notice much stiction with them? I didn't like the sticky feel when you start to move the plunger. I was thinking about pulling one apart and trying some high quality hydraulic fluid to see if that might reduce the stiction a bit.

Cheers
Shawn
