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.

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.

* Updated the MagHall6803F and MagHall6803HXF to V3 for improved fit
* Emphasised the importance of watching the Loose Fit Calibration Video before printing

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!
