P-51 Throttle quadrant

Hey Guys,

Sorry for not beeing able to join you guys lately, the little one claims the evenings for us.
Although not much time to fly, i still have some spare minutes to work on a project that may interest you.

This will be a highly simplified throttle quadrant for our beloved Mustang, working with hall sensors and a three way switch for mixture control. All parts can be 3D printed separately, controll and connectivity will be provided through an arduino mini. I plan to expand the project to a full floor mounted hotas.

Let me know what you think :slight_smile:

WOW Rasuro! it is very cool!

Iā€™d prefear the P47 throttle assembly (the P51 can be considered a subset of it) but it looks very nice indeed!

let me know in case you can share the source model (STEP or similar)

Plans are created with Shapr3D, it has its own plan format :slight_smile: I am planning to share all with you guys, hoping that we can improve functionality further without loosing the simple manufacturing method :slight_smile: I also have the print files generated for the base parts :slight_smile:

do you have an extimate of the overall cost?

well printing should be around 30 euros, so overall around a 150 euros including the sensors, switches, cables, bearings, aluminium for the handles, and the arduino :slight_smile:
