Some month ago, I published a YouTube tutorial how to build a remote stick for your OpenVario glide computer. It´s an ergonomic remote stick designed for 3D printing, leather wraping and at the end you should glue in an aluminium insert.

SteFly remote stick (ABS):
Insert for 19 mm diameter (aluminium):
Insert for 20 mm diameter (aluminium):
Front plate (carbon fiber):

We use ABS filament and a layer height of 0,3mm and 100% infill.
Check out the tutorial how to wrap the remote stick with leather:

The stick is not certified for aviation purpose, I´m not responsible for any accidents which are directly or indirectly caused by the grip stick. It is strongly recommended to use an aluminium insert for strength reasons and don´t controle the glider with the head of the remote stick!

Stefan, Do you have a pattern for the leather cover?

Hi Stefan, möchte den Knüppel in meine Libelle bauen, erstmal ohne Elektronik. Besteht die Chance an das Schnittmuster für das Leder zu kommen? Danke.
