MKIV collective base is released!

I am glad to announce the completion of the 1st manual of Simchair MKIV line. The new line of hardware will take a Linux-like approach – we will have separate compatible modules that can be connected together to form a lever of choice.

The new base is epic, so from now on, the MKIII one is obsolete =) It is fully compatible with all MKIII lever bodies, and you can safely use it with those if you’re building the lever right now.

The first lever body to be released will be the compact collective – a motion-platform ready compact solution with integrated head. An interesting thing about it is that it supports the pneumatic mod, but does not require it! Also, it doesn’t need the counterweight, and that’s important with all lateral loads and shake that can be present when using the lever with motion platforms.

STL’s and sources can be downloaded from the new simchair4_models repo.

  1. Thank you very much for this new model. Reviewing the material list I find the M6x18x8mm hubs hard to find in Internet. Could you provide a link to a shop to buy those items (Aliexpress or similar)? The closest that I’ve found are M6x20mm threaded sleeves, with al outer diameter of 10mm.

    1. You are welcome!

      Hmm, these may indeed be fairly hard to find, will look into it, as an option- I can buy some for you locally, along with correct magnets and springs for cyclic if you need them, and ship to you =)
