this picture shows the player's hand resting comfortably within the contours of the throttle unit; all buttons, rotaries etc are easily accessible, with one glaring exception. there is no useful contact between pinkie and lh rudder rocker.

this contraption seeks to improve that situation.

it's a guitar plectrum (?) the type that slips over the finger ends. double sided foam tape was used to fix a shaped chunk of eraser to the plectrum. a thin ribbon of heavy guage aluminium foil (disposable pie tins are a good source for this material) provides a stronger binding.

here's the contraption at full throttle.

with very best wishes to you all.
