    Throttle quadrant for those who like to Fly the Tomahawk II or the KittyHawk

    I finally got around to finishing up some throttle quadrants. It's a self-contained unit with a built-in USB joystick controller. You get Throttle, Mixture, and Pitch, just like in the real aircraft. Also has a push-button on the throttle knob...in the real aircraft it was used as a push-to-talk button, but of course, you can assign it to whatever function you want.
    Comes with a 10' USB cable, and has mounting holes for attaching to your desired surface.

    Available at www.gear-falcon.com or at my Etsy site.

    Thanks. bought it from your site. Any recommendation for a stand-alone mount? This kinda looks like the Authentikit controls. Are you able, or willing, to do those as a turnkey?
    Thanks

    I don't really have any mounting options... it is meant to be mounted in a cockpit. I've thought about designing some type of desktop clamp, and might still do it, but I know there are a lot of folks out there selling different types of heavy-duty mounts already. Google is your friend! Also check out the Reddit forums for hotasdiy, etc.

    As for the Authentikit stuff... I really don't want to mess around with someone else's IP. All my stuff is original and unique. If I even look at someone else's stuff it might influence the things I design, and I wouldn't want to be accused of stealing anyone else's work.
