Looking good. Hopefully I can get mine shipped before of the inevitable hard-brexit. 🙂

We could always go back to smuggling😉, but I hope it won't come to that.

😁 Contraband USB controllers to Europe!!

Currently all pre orders should be shipped before Brexit, hard or otherwise. Thanks for the flattering comments, I tried to keep the design as neat and compact as possible to allow maximum movement in the minimum size.

Hi Chris,

Do we get an email notification when our order has left your premises and one from UPS for tracking purposes?

UPDATE: Just had an email from UPS advising delivery tomorrow. 👍

Thanks for the update Ray, was just about to reply.

This is mirroring facebook as I was asked to show a pic of the boxes.

Keep an eye out for one of these....
If you have paid for your order then line up and wait!
Everyone else, hold short and standby.
You will get your email inviting you to complete your purchase as soon as we can manage it.

Thanks Chris,

I guess mine must have been in the picture because I have also received a email from UPS that says that it will be delivered on Wednesday 10/21/2020.

I'm still eagerly waiting for the payment email. I ordered really early on preorder day so hopefully I can get one from the first batch.

A world first then !! 
 

my UPS  email just said by end of day. Luckily the dog wasn’t out in the garden as he  sometimes chases delivery men away.

 

Hang in there Ray, it can’t be too much longer 😄

I'm feeling the pressure here!

World first yoke in the wild, you have no idea how nerve wracking this is!! 😬

Given it’s in the capable hands of a real-world pilot who has already trialled it you can rest easy.

Yes Jon. A clever chap who attended our monthly flight sim meetings had two so sold me one of them. £100 including the two quadrants which was very reasonable.

The box holding the quadrants can be purchased here. It means the levers are at a much better angle than if it’s just clamped to the desk.

Glad you guys have got your yokes. Funnily enough, I was going to ask about that throttle pedestal too! Looks the business.👍

 

Could one of you please tell me the 'height' of the clamp unit? Distance from top to bottom of the C part and total length of the screw (including the grip). It's obviously going to be too big for the average computer desk with a keyboard drawer, but I do have an option of using an older secondary computer desk and leaving it's keyboard drawer off.
