With additive manufacturing (aka 3D Printing) it is now possible to create products at home to a quality that comes close to professional manufacturing – whether you want a flight stick or a wood turning lathe. Unless you are an amateur engineer though you’re likely to have no end of trouble and expense sourcing all the springs, bearings, sensors and more to just the right specification.
This is our current range, which we intend to expand over time with more AuthentiKit designs as well as other sim related kits. Starter Kits include parts for the AuthentiKit Universal Hub which is needed to connect flight controls to your computer.
Our kit contains everything you need (except the 3d printed parts of course) to build the AuthentiKit Spitfire MkIX flight stick*. In addition it contains spares and useful tools that take away much of the hassle you get when you don’t have quite the right screwdriver or allen key.
Just print the parts and you have all you need for a working flight stick that will connect to your favourite flight sim. See FAQ for delivery times.
* Don’t forget you’ll probably want the mounting system to enjoy this flight stick properly. See authentikit.org for more information about that.
Well you need the 3D printed parts. You may also need a mounting system/rig depending on what kit you are buying. The Spitfire Kits use a 2 arm monitor stand as a rig to on which to mount the flight stick and other parts.
If there is demand then yes we intend to. Drop us a line if you’re interested.
Based in the UK but will ship world wide. You need to be prepared for a possible customs charge if you are overseas. I use Royal Mail Standard International for overseas. Please bear with me in these early days if I can’t get it in the post same day. There are a lot of parts to this kit and organising suppliers is proving complex so sometimes its 2-3 days before I can send it out to you. Please drop me a line if delivery time is critical for you.
