I had two plastic military-style control sticks, but at the moment of the installation I decided to make them of wood. So I used a piece of spruce and cut it.




Since I didn't have a piece that was high enought, I glued on the two sides other spruce. to make the top wider.



This work has been a real pleasure. I shaped carefully the spruce, and made the pilot's control stick for my hand. My fingers fit perfectly...



Drilling the hole in for the aluminium tube. I drew the alignement lines to prevent mistakes.



Here is the new control stick. It still needs to be painted, and I'm very happy with it.I made another one for the passenger, on Davide's hand.
