Mounting System V2 1.0

A strong all metal system for mounting an AuthentiKit flight stick and cockpit sidewall controls

The AuthentiKit mounting system V2 introduces a number of changes and upgrades to the legacy mounting system. Whilst it still relies on an inverted monitor stand as a strong sturdy base the following areas are different.

  • The aluminium pole attached with 3D print brackets is replaced with the steel arms of the monitor stand
  • Flight controls are mounted directly to the arms
  • A printed arm lock prevents the arms rotating around the pole
  • The flight stick no longer uses the VESA bracket but mounts to a stick mount that attaches directly to the jaws of the arms

This download includes many CAD files for a variety of purposes and you will only need to print a selection of these depending on your situation.

  • Arm Grip You will use one of these for every sidewall mounted control such as a trim wheel, unless you are using a control which needs to be raised up above the monitor arm in which case Arm Grip Holy is used which contains a hole for an additional screw. The normal Arm Grip fits to VESA
  • VESA attaches to Arm Grip with 3x M4 10mm screws and provides the primary flight control mount
  • Arm Grip Holy use this in place of Arm Grip if you need to use VESA 200 Riser instead of VESA
  • VESA 200 Riser is like VESA but lifts the quick release plate up by 200mm above the arm - currently used for P-51D throttle. It requires Arm Grip Holy
  • Arm Lock LHS is the left hand side of the arm lock which prevents the pole grip rotating
  • Arm Lock RHS pairs with Arm Lock LHS
  • Arm Lock LHS Offset is an alternative to Arm Lock LHS but takes 20mm M5 bolts instead of 40mm bolts
  • Arm Lock RHS Offset pairs with Arm Lock RHS
  • Arm Extension adds an extra 200mm to the length of an arm by fixing into the jaws of the outermost arm section
  • Arm Endpiece goes into the jaws of the final arm section to make it nice'n'tidy
  • Stick Mount Short is a mounting for the flight stick. It goes into the jaws of the lowest arm section
  • Stick Mount Long Angled is an an alternative to Stick Mount short and is used if extra length is needed to to avoid the arm sections catching your left leg
