P-51D Mustang Throttle 1.04

This magnificent throttle features twist grip gunsight aiming and meticulous detailing

Featuring working twist grip, PTT and run/full rich detent this throttle has it all. It's based on the amazing work of Discord member Stiggles who meticulously recreated a CAD reference from original drawings.


Of course it uses our latest technoligies - adjustable friction, hydraulic damping and ball spring detents. For a full list of the features see the P-51D page on AuthentiKit.org.


This download contains everything you need to build the throttle and plug it into your Universal Hub The following items are included.

  • All 3D printable CAD files (in STL or 3MF) format
  • Wiring diagram
  • Bill of Materials - other hardware parts (bearings, screws etc) you will need
  • Assembly steps
  • Print batches document - showing an image of all the parts and their orientation for printing
  • Felt templates
  • An inventory of the screws so you can cross check which screw size is used where

The controls are mounted using quick release plates to Rig Extension A which is fixed to your inverted monitor stand. See The Rig.

  • Version 1.04

    Includes extra documentation on mapping the mixture lever in DCS

  • Version 1.0.3

    Includes debossed versions of the front plate and mixture plate. This allows the white silicone/caulk lettering method to be used instead of 2-colour or filament change method.

  • Version 1.0.2

    * Updated the MagHall6803F and MagHall6803HXF to V3 for improved fit

    * Emphasised the importance of watching the Loose Fit Calibration Video before printing

  • Version 1.0.1

    Modified Crossbar.3mf, Prop Mix Lock Disc.3mf and Mixture Mag Plate.3mf to allow more screw clearance. Just to be safe.

  • Version 1.0

  • P51 - Mustang throttle - engineering marvel

    Using bambu p1s with the build plates provided in prusa slicer. so take note to adjust for the authentikit tolerance requirements


    X-y hole compensation 0,075

    x-y contour compensation -0.04

    It could not have been easier to prepare for the build. the moment the hardware kit arrived and all the printing complete. It took me about 4-5 hours to put it together. the feel and sensation of the throttle is another level of fun.


    I would recommend getting silicone grease for guiding wires through the tube. other then that. all the wiring can be painful when you run short (my mistake) so add 10 if not 20 cm to each wire as they might snap when pulling initially through

  • P-51 Mustang Throttle

    This kit was my first real foray into 3-D printing. It took me a few tries to get the parts printed correctly, but Authentikit's Loose Fit Calibration tools were a big help. The assembly was easy once the parts were sized correctly. The instructional video is simple to follow, even if you have little to no experience with wiring. The assembled unit feels solid and looks great, even with my imperfect printing. I haven't used it in a game yet, but everything appears to work correctly on my PC.


    The Discord channel was helpful every time I had a question, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Many thanks to Authentikit for my new hobby!

  • Perfect companion for the P51 pedestal

    The throttle like the pedestal is a charm to print and assemble. It is a llitle bit trickier to assemble than the pedestal but not too hard. For VR is much more inmersive to have a device closer to the real thing than a generic throttle.

  • P51D throttle build onto dof reality h3

    So when Authentikit released the p51d throttle it was a must build for me due to converting from the spitfire mkix to the 51 in dcs.

    I run a custom dof reality h3, vr and some other 3D printed custom goodies.


    To print I used a ender 3 v2 printer with pla+ filament and the settings recommended in the documentation. I used cura slicer also along with the print batches.


    The assembly video was awesome as usual and living in Singapore I was able to source the components very cost effectively. For example all of the bolts for 16sgd and the sensors also cheaply. Assembling did take me circa 6 hours but most of that was compensating for calibration issues of the printer. I didn’t use the dual filament but a white paint marker pen did a great job.


    The design and fitment is great - I really like the feel of the throttle damper and mixture lever plus the range adjuster gives a new level of immersion in the p51.


    I’m terms of mounting I’ve used the quick release but hard bolted one of the long extension mounts to the rig for guaranteed stability and works great.


    Fantastic job as always and thanks for the informative and detailed video guide!


    A must have for p51 pilots!
