Flight Joystick

28 comments
I've always been interested in aviation, so I decided to build this fully function flight joystick that works by simply using your computer mouse. By placing a computer mouse into the model, you are able to control many games and flight simulators, and feel just like a real pilot.

The mechanism works perfectly and is incredibly fun to use.

Features of the model include:
  • Working trigger (for activating functions such as lowering the landing gear or extending flaps)
  • Adjustable table mount/clamp (puts the joystick at a lower and more comfortable position)
  • A 2 axis gimbal for controlling both role and pitch
  • Works with most computer mice of the same size and allows the mouse to be easily removable
