Had an old stick lying about. Like many logitech sticks the aileron axis had stopped working properly. I dismantled it unplugged the broken sensor and took out the spring that centered the stick. I put it back together and screwed two metal runners to apply friction and to make the stick only go back and forward. Hey presto a throttle lever with 6 extra buttons and one extra slider!

I'll post pics later if anyone is interested.
