It is build out of plastic drainage pipes from the local DIY shop and I am very pleased with the concept build.
After glueing the bottom parts together with PVC glue the mount got a lot more rigid.
The top part is removable (which is nice because the Warthog stick sits very tightly and is not easy to remove when needed.
Not in the pictures is the styrene “bottom” I made to protect the vulnerable Warthog wires at the bottom of the base of the stick.
Next was building an option to fix the desk chair:
Testing if I fit properly in this office conversion
Still to come:
K-51 collective which I hope to mount at the left side of my office chair.
The Warthog Throttle and Saitek Saitek Pro Flight Switch Panel which will be setup in the adjacent Ikea Ivar shelf.
The trio of HP desktops are the old game computers which were used by our kids in their “lanparty room” which is nextdoor.
They have been replaced by more powerful gaming computers.
The shoe is my old running shoe containing a powerbrick while the glue is drying
I have been working from home since Covid emerged and my running shoes have been promoted to office kit (no more running as my knees cannot take it).
I am amazed at the details you guys see on the pictures. I expected some comments about the Tamiya Clodbuster and King Tiger, but not about my shoe.
Still working on an option for an offcenter stick mount…
I am thinking of a piece of wood which has a second sewerpipe endcap to screw the pipe + stick on.
This will be positioned to the right of the pilot.
My table is nothing more than a big piece of wood supported on both end with wooden beams that have been bolted to the walls.
One wooden beam from left to right prevents the table from bending.
No room for adjustment so after careful measuring I decided that this is the correct height.
