JOYSTICK FOR TAILDRAGGERS

KR1511 Guest

HI ALL.

ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND A JOYSTICK THAT WOULD BE MORE SIMILAR TO THE REGULAR STICKS FOUND IN CHAMPS AND CITABRIA (TAILDRAGGERS) ?

There are some people who do not know that using all upper case is considered shouting. So he may be a bit puzzled by your reply even though I enjoyed it. Wink

As far as the question goes; I am not aware of any joysticks that have been modelled after real yokes; if that is what you mean.

No, I've never seen a joystick that was made in the form of a general aviation aircrafts stick, only the normal joysticks that you see in the store. The stick in a Champ or Citabria is pretty plane, having only a push-talk switch. Almost any joystick will do. If your trying to replicate the size and feel of the real stick, that's very hard because to get the correct movement, you would have to have it mounted on the floor and the stick would be 2 ft. long.

Arrow Don't type in all caps, it's considered yelling.

if you have spare cash and fancy mutilating something expensive...

that or you could do a similar mod much more easily to a regular joystick - it wouldn't be the same but it may work better.
