P-40B Tomahawk Throttle Quadrant 1.3

This throttle quadrant is replica of the P-40B and is also a great match for a wide range of vintage combat and non combat aircraft such as the Harvard/Texan T6 or the Waco YMF-5.

This download contains the following items:

  1. All 3D printable CAD files (in STL or 3MF) format required to print the parts for the throttle quadrant
  2. Wiring diagram
  3. Bill of Materials - other hardware parts (bearings, screws etc) you will need
  4. Assembly steps
  5. An inventory of the screws so you can cross check which screw size is used where

The throttle mounts to the primary rig system using Rig Extension A which is included in the Spitfire MkIX Add On Kit B or is available separately. It connects to your PC via the Universal Hub and uses the throttle input.

This is the main assembly video but see the documentation for supporting videos.

  • Version 1.3

    v1.3 Released 11th August 2022


    * Includes PDF template for felt cut outs

    * Minor widening of prop lever slot to prevent sticking

    * Small change to prop lever shape for smoother movement

    If you have version 1.2 and want to upgrade (please comment below if you do and why) then this is what is different.

    1) The front plate has a less wide curved slot - not strictly necessary to reprint apart from appearances

    2) The front panel has a less wide curved slot and the friction pad is recessed a little to ease pressure on the prop lever. This is the main change.

    3) The prop lever (not the extension piece) has a shoulders to give it more contact when sliding and so less likely to twist

  • P-40B throttle quadrant - my first, but surely not last project delivered by Authentikit


    I need to confess that when I saw for the first time Spitfire spade + joystick I had mixed feelings. On the one hand I found it amazing that someone was willing to share his project that surely costs him hundreds (?) of hours for free. On the other hand I thought that some of the concepts are over engineered and well to complicated so I passed.

    But then Authentikit released this: P-40B throttle quadrant. P-40 is one of my favourite aircrafts since forever so I had to give it a try. And you know what? I have found the design to be perfectly well designed. It was a pleasure to build it and even more pleasure to use it . Since I built this throttle quadrant I have built P-40 trim box as well and Spitfire TQ and Spade is almost completely printed already :)


  • Replica 3 lever control for WWII Warbirds? Yes Please!

    This was an easy print and fun to put together and I've honestly replaced my Thrustmaster setup with this quadrant... and I can not be happier! The control is precise and the immersion is realistic and it really brings IL2 to life.

    I sold all my thrustmaster/Saitek too but it's a real complement to hear when others feel confident to do the same.

  • Great Throttle Quadrant Solution

    Brilliant design, can't wait to complete for use can be used with multiple aircraft, I plan to use with P-40, P-51, and T-6 for starters. I struggle with my current joystick options having no friction option which results in unintended changes to power during flight, this solution solves that issue with damper feature making changes to throttle only intended changes :thumbup:

  • The pinnacle of the Authentikit experience (so far)

    Well thought out design, with very smooth operation. Useful for several different planes both warbirds and GA (Perfect for the F3F-2 in MSFS when paired with the Spitfire Chassis lever). I've already put mine through many hours of use and works as well as the first time.

  • Amazing throttle quadrant

    Building the throttle quadrant is very satisfying.

    The attention to detail in the design is amazing!

    It works and feel great, I use it for GA flying.

    Thank you for this great project Phil!

    Highly recommended.
