Elite Dangerous HOTAS Desk Mount

Elite Dangerous HOTAS Desk Mount

Recently went hunting for suitable equipment to mount my stick and throttle (for Elite Dangerous) on my desk.  The most appropriate I found was a set called the JoyLoc Clamp Master.  Unfortunately they were $180 a pair back before they went out of business 3 years ago.  So, I set about making my own.  Made some designs involving wood and or steel, and settled on trying to make the wooden ones.  Some 1/4″ plywood, time with a table saw, and a few McMaster Carr fasteners later… viola!  Drilled and glued threaded inserts into the bottom of my Ikea desk.

The slots in the upper deck along with some thumb screws allow removal and storage when not in use.

 Overall, I’m quite happy with them.
