Control Sticks

And here are the control sticks. Kind of funny looking, right? Well, this is pretty much the only way I could get them to fit around the seats. They're actually pretty comfortable. I can't wait to hook them up to the control surfaces to see what they really feel like!

I decided to make both sticks removable, in case I wanted to change something later.
I obviously don't have the correct hardware installed, but it kind of shows how they are attached. There is an inner tube or "sleeve" that connects the stick and the stub together. There will also be some sort of "boot" or cover at the base of the sticks that goes over the bolts and covers the holes in the floor.

Total Time: 5.0 hrs.
