    Ok here goes....

    I've used my wife's old stepper and stip most of the parts away...only needing the frame and the hinge.

    I've then extended the joystick with aluminum pipe and all the necessary cables. Connected the hand piece to pipe, pipe to foot piece, foot piece to stepper frame. I then extended the rudder cables to the hinge and viola!!

    I also use my Momo Wheel for elevator trim

    one "mounted mouse" for:
    left click - prop pitch down
    right click - prop pith up
    wheel - power up and down

    Freetrack Welcome to the FreeTrack website witch is the find of '08 for me!! It is really fantastic.

    ...and last my pc:
    AMD Dual Core 4.8
    4 Gig Ram DDR800
    8600 GT512 graphics card

    Oh yes, about 2 -3 hours daily.

    I do have another Joystick, which I will modify the same way, more professionally I might add.
    This was a result of a brainstorm I had one evening. The new mod will future R/C car motors to replace the Logitech motors. Some of the motors fit perfectly and is about 4x stronger!

    The real cool thing about this mod is that long distance flying is a dream.
