The Brains was a traditionalist when it came to cockpit designs.

Just look at his glasses.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Here's a point: Why isn't it fly-by-wire? Small joystick control on the right chair arm & a bigger panel for switches on the left with angled panels at the front? ???

Almost looks Korean/Vietnam War vintage. ;)

You are right of course, but a cold digital layout based on something like an F16 just took the joy right out out of it and I did do a little research and just thought ... nope.

I'm an analogue doggie :)

(Having said that I did put up LCD panesl for instruments and outside view ... I suffer so much from Cognitive dissonance it hurts)

Yeah, Brains knows where I'm coming from. He designed the hover bike but prefers his vintage T140V Bonneville :)

Nice.  :smiley:

The X-15 had two side-sticks.

High-G flight control stick, mechanically linked to centre stick. This control stick system was tested on the NAA
F-107A 55120 while operated by the NACA.


Ballistic control system stick.



A side-stick controller of some sort wouldn't be completely out of place with steam gauges.  ;)

Next time I go looking for refs I need to try harder  that would have had a big influence - nice one.

OK, at some point I'm having a go at TB2 and will do the flight deck which begs the question ... conventional yoke or what ?

I would, but you have to remember the separate controls for the (4) vertical thrusters & (2) level flight engines. ;)
