VR oriented DIY
For those of you who play in VR and want a control setup that feels authentic to the real aircraft, AuthentiKit may have what you’re looking for as their series of Spitfire released controls including the infamous Spade grip, throttle quadrant, and trim controls have been joined by this new control.
A short video shows the system in operation.
AuthentiKit is a freeware project so you can download and print the materials yourself. They do have a No Printer option where you can pay to have the components printed for you as well. Check out the details here.
