I open this thread, because I am building a dual yoke force feedback system for my Piper Comanche cockpit.

I have been using a single yoke from an AST300 simulator, which is fine. But Im going to try to update the system, building everthing.

What I will be using:
-I manage to get two real Piper Comanche yokes.
-MY 1026 350W dc motors.
-30Amp motor controllers
-600ppm encoders
-1500W power supply
-A self build forcefeedback box, with a Teensy 4.1, which reads the data from simulators. I will be coding for p3d, msfs, and xplane. It has a display and encoder with a menu system to setup de hardware and diferent parameters.

It will generate diferents forces:
-vibrations for ground, prop, stall..
-aerodynamic forces
-autopilot following
-trim system
Something like FsForce software. You can setup in the display the amount of forces, types etc

The controller box is 80% coded, and I have been testing it using old wheel without original electronics. I have tested with my electronics.

Now I have to rebuild the structure of the cockpit to install the hardware. I am designing and building the hardware.

Real piper Comanche yokes:

The piece in the panel to pass through the yoke shaft.

With oringial comanche bezels:

3d printed pieces to build de transmision system:

Controller box:

A video with some vibrations effects:

A video using the trim system. This old wheel has no electronics. I am using muy controller box with the original dc motor and encoder.

I will keeping the thread update.
