Right now, this is my tentative future mount for the stick:
As you can see in the underside (slightly blurry) view, the metal section (aluminum) that I would need to bolt the base plate to is a bit flimsy…got to think of a way to make that sturdy.
If I can get that going for the stick, I will only need to get a mount for the throttle. Right now I’ve got it sitting on an adjustable shelf unit (steel tube frame) but the height is not right so a desk mount looks to be the way to go.
BTW, I purchased the airline cockpit seat on eBay… it cost considerably more than simple desk mounts…especially with shipping. Its initial purpose was as a “proper” seat for my FSX comer jets, and it works quite nicely for that.
However, now that I’ve made the leap to XP11, I’m not sure I want to get back into “heavy metal”…maybe just GA and some helos. I am definitely not getting into everything and anything…my FSX hangar has something like 1700 individual planes…not counting the ones that I have put out in my digital boneyard.
