Bell 206 collective head release

The final version of Bell 206 style collective head is now available for download, along with a special version of the lever body with a 104-degree throttle turn range! I have also added its assembly manual to the wiki and updated the firmware to support the new head =)

This one looks really good, and, although simple, has everything one needs to fly helicopters – as its starter button and GOV RPM switch support MKIV collective mode switch functionality.

If you want something scale-looking, this one is definitely an eye-catcher.

If you’re using MKIV software, please update – this version has some important fixes related to throttle operation in ALL of MKIV collective levers and related advanced functions:

  • throttle stabilizer works properly now for all collective levers
  • button press on throttle cutoff and DCS Huey compat mode now work correctly with inverted throttle axes

  1. Interesting, i’m trying something similar with text in 3D print for home sim. Are you using a white filament layer or is that color you apply by hand after the print to make the text stand out?

    1. Hi! The process looks like that: at first, I print stuff in black with letters cut in the surface, then fill them with the white corrector pen, and then paint the letters over with a black permanent marker =) I tried a lot of different ways, this one is definitely the easiest!
