because of the Installation of the Yoke System and the Pedals under the floor i was forced to take apart the complete Simulator. So i used the Chance to make a new MIP structure out of MDF material which is more stable that the original pressed Wood Chip structure. Of course when you do a new MIP holder you use the Chance to implement a lot of improvements. (New Monitor Holders, New wiring and )
YES – a new DIY Gear Lever with full functionality. You can find all detailed informations on the Page dedicated to the Gear Lever. Have a look here -> Gear Lever Page
The Yokes finally have been finished and the mechanic works. Here is a Short Youtube Video explaining the whole story. Next step (while the HC is torn apart) is the preparation of the pedal system and its installation. And while now the HC is in its pieces – there are a lot of opportunities to change, improve or add things to the Sim.
As you know i purchased original 737 Yokes some time ago, After the yoke columns ( 700€ used from Netherlands) lay around for 1,5 years, i decided to start the activities for the installation. The whole Installation of original yokes is quite an effort and belongs to the bigger subprojects of homecockpit building. The yokes Need to be reworked, wired and installed. For the proper use inthe Cockpit, some heavy duty mechanics Needs to be prepared. And finally the complete Simulator Needs to be lifted by approx 150mm onto a support frame to get the required space for the mechanic System. You can find the Progress on the related page.

after some requests i finally made it and put the main Autocad DWG File i used for nearly all my panels in the Download Section. Please note that the copyright goes to an unknown hero – i just took it from mycockpit.org several years ago and used it for my project.
