Thread: Broken blue plastic propeller control knob

  1. #11
    Search thru the forums, as I recall a few years back someone was producing them. I bought both a red and blue one. They weren’t expensive either.

    I am in the process of printing a throttle quadrant, once completed I’ll look at having an STL file made for each of the three knobs... while I will not print them for anyone, I will post the STL file. 3D printers are more readily available now, Out public libraries are starting to see them available for the public to use! Something as small as a knob would only take about an hour of two to print at the highest quality. 55 bucks for a knob is crazy!

    I just received my mixture control knob from south seas ventures. The knob looks good, but at $54.95 for the knob and $12.31 shipping/handling, it's expensive. Reminds me of AECI in a way.

    Bob,

    Unfortunately it’s the price we pay for older aircraft no longer in production. With the 3D printers everyone’s talking about, if every BAC member was to purchase a set, the price would probably be half. Something for someone to think about?

    I know the knob was reasonable in aircraft terms, but 12 bucks to ship it seems a bit high. Not really complaining as we needed the knob, just grumbling a little.

    The knob looks great, though, and it's PMA'd.

    I have yet to deal with a knob issue, but how complicated is to make one out of wood?

    Can cut a piece off a broom stick handle, lol so anyway??

    Bob, you can grumble! But pity me, for I need two of everything.
