    Hello all:

    Until last year sometime there was a German website with a great set of photos illustrating dozens of control sticks and wheels. I had this link: www.cockpitinstrumente.de/ But it no longer works. I posted here about this and earlier this year a member of this board provided this link: http://www.deutscheluftwaffe.de/inst...talogMenue.htm But it now longer works either.

    Anyone here know if this German site has folded up shop, or whether they have migrated elsewhere?

    Thank you….

    There is also this book which is frequently sold on eBay titled 'German Aircraft Cockpits 1911 - 1970', this is also a useful reference guide. Shop around as the prices vary and are usually high, may even be cheaper on Amazon.

    Does anyone know where to get hold of the trim switches fitted to Lockheed type yokes - like the C130 - at the top of each arm? Thanks in advance.

    "The second link you provided still works well for me Nick:"

    Thanks for the feedback Darrell. Maybe I had the wrong link. The site I'm thinking of had illustrations and photos of just the control wheels or grips for dozens of German aircraft. The link I have to that site has not worked for a year or more now. I'm hoping the information on that site is still available.....somewhere.

    Different switches for different aircraft Martyn. Attached are photos of the switches in my C130 wheel. Perhaps the P/Ns will be of help in your search.

    "These switches"

    You didn't state the aircraft....I'm guessing that's a Lockheed TR-1 cockpit (heavily modernized U-2). Switch assemblies look very similar to what was used on the P3 Orion series. Photos are of switches in my P-3A wheel.

    Hi Swifter, thanks so much for the photos. Yes, they are exactly the ones although the words are different. Do you know where I can get them from?

    Try flight helmet.com. They have similar hiding in their parts section. A site with lots to tempt but breathtaking prices.

    Martyn: You can try Nick Louis at "Airline Pilot's Historical Society" too for the P3 switch assemblies. Finding them specifically for the TR-1 would be unlikely given the nature of the aircraft and low production. Re-labeling the switches is not difficult. I supplied the two sets of photos since you may be able to pull some part numbers and names from them for use in searches.

    Hi Ian, I'm intending entering the lottery this week, so following my win, I might be able to get some of the stuff on flighthelmet. But as you say, lots of interesting stuff, also for my Bucanneer ejector seat.

    Thanks to 'wyvernfan' and his link to the replica VC-10 yoke hub, here is the finished product smartly positioned in my VC-10 yoke!

    That sets the yoke off a treat. Very nice.

    Looking good GYD. I ordered one but still not received. Is the base made of anodized metal or plastic?

    Hi Nick,

    The body is metal and superbly finished, I might invest in another!

    Hello all:

    This is a re-post from earlier this year. The brake handles on the Blackburn Beverly yoke I bought last year are locked up (as in immovable)...I suspect due to internal corrosion. Lube and metal-mover have had no effect on freeing up the handles. Started the process of removing the end-cap fasteners and discovered they have "become one" with the surrounding metal. Drilled down into one of the (screw) fasteners and ended up snapping the screw extractor inside the screw! If anyone on the forum site has a "secret sauce" for tackling this problem I would love to hear it.

    Anyone got a diagram of the parts for the fitting of the yoke to a Canberra column, it's been a few years since I took one apart

    Hi JC,

    Is this any use? If so, I can try and scan it or photocopy it and send it to you?

    that is helpful thanks, a scan would be good if you could do that, shame it shows from the back, because it is hard to see the bits at the front

    I have a grip, and I have a column, there seem to be a lot of bits that fit the yoke to the spindle, sourcing those might be a pain

    If anyone has an interest in a reasonably decent wheel for a C-141 Starlifter (sans center section) there is one available on US Ebay for a BIN of $100.

    Did you buy it then Ian?

    JC, I will try to scan the page and those of the part numbers to help identify the components if you like? Got to dig the scanner out of the garage but, first locate it!
