I was going through some old army stuff and came across the joy stick off a helicopter. I would really like to install it in my sami but the shifter is too long and at the wrong angle to be comfortable. The FSM shows the shifter to be a two piece design. There looks to be the actual shifter( a solid rod) and a sleeve that wraps around it to continue up. Does anyone know if this is right? And if it is, how high up does the actual shift lever(solid rod) go? I'm thinking that maybe I can bend the sleeve to the right angle and cut it off to the proper hight. But if it is a solid one piece design or if the solid piece goes up very high, I'm sure bending it would be a lot harder. Any ideas on how I might be able to do this without mucking it all up? I keep reading about things people are doing to their rigs to make them different from the pack and want to give it a try.
