I am proud to share my home-built Controller design that can bring your Flight Simulation experience to the whole new level. My goal was to design and build an amazing platform that combines a full-fledged universal Motion Simulator with custom-designed controls that let you fly GA aircraft, Turboprops, Airliners and Helicopters in VR in a compact form factor and an unbelievable budget of under $500. All controllers are built for VR in mind: they are compact and have tactile cues to easily develop muscle memory and use them while wearing a VR HMD.
Important note: this is not a commercial product, unlike my airports, nor is it in a state comparable to a commercial DIY kit plan. I am sharing all the files and plans I created for my personal enjoyment in a form of a free download. Optional donation amount is only a form of supporting my Flight Simulation projects. This is not a direct payment for the files, nor is it an obligation on my part for any form of technical support. Be prepared for the files not making sense at first, and needing modifications and adjustments. I tried to name and organize the files logically, but there is no proper documentation. Treat my project files as a good starting point and examples of what you can do. I am not responsible for any damage you cause to yourself or your hardware by using my files. Just running my configuration files on your rig without adjusting for your setup will not work, and may crash your rig and cause damage. Powerful motors and high currents and voltages are not a joke. Your safety is your responsibility.
Big thanks to the following Thingiverse users who created the original source models that I used, redesigned and modified for my project:
Throttle – zefram
Throttle handles – Wierzbowsky
Gear lever – Zenon
Encoder knobs: FlightSimMaker
Please consider supporting my Flight Simulation projects with an optional donation. Feel free to enter $0 and buy some of my airports instead.
