The wait is over! Digital Flightstick Part 2 (The FlightStickening!) is here and ready for you
to force your 3D printers to print.
Admittedly, it's far from perfect. I think five buttons is probably overkill, the ergonomics are basic and the trigger would benefit from a microswitch. In fact all the fire buttons would be better microswitched but hey! It works and I hope you have some fun with it.
Also included is a three button version which I think is a bit more sensible and the next version, I am hoping, will have a custom printable base as well.
Also, also I included the fs_skirt which is a work in progress.
If it fits (depending on Sanwa clone size variations), it will hide the cabling from the flightstick and route it into your control panel behind where your joystick internals reside.
That's the idea anyway -- I included the STL for adjustment.
Three print choices available for the flightstick which vary in time and material used:
_4415H means: 4 top layers, 4 bottom layers, 15% infill and H is Hex infill.
_4410i means: 4 top layers, 4 bottom layers, 10% infill and i is 3D infill.
_445L means: 4 top layers, 4 bottom layers, 5% infill and L is Line infill.
