One again really good work Allan.
Can't wait for you to publish both the throttle and mixture knobs. The ones on your Sim look genuine but it would be so good if you could publish identically dimensioned copies for those of us without access to the real thing.

I purchased real throttle and mixture controls but I would be happy to caliper them and upload dimensionally accurate models.

Hey! Not sure if I’ll get a reply since this was posted a while ago but I’ve been trying to make a sim for a 172 , pretty much all I’m looking to to have the throttle made like how you have yours with the trim wheel and flaps as well , I was wondering if you ever thought about maybe making one to sell , I’d definitely be willing to pay for one that was already premade and ready for a sim

Just measured and posted models for both. The FreeCAD file is provided if you need to make any adjustments for attaching to a shaft.
