Default UPDATE-The yoke warped!

I finally flew with the repaired headset today. I left it on my seat while I ate breakfast. When I got back to the plane I found that the new yoke warped while the original didnít. I mean, it warped A LOT! So much so that I canít use the headset. It wasnít particularly warm (under 70 degrees) so this shouldnít have happened.

I sent Zachary an email asking if there are other plastics that donít warp he can use. Hopefully he can send me a new part. Iíll report back.

I bought a replacement yoke from Zack too. Worked great for a few flights. Then I noticed it had warped and no longer sealed along the bottom of my ear allowing noise in I picked up a used A20 to use for now. Bose was not very consumer friendly to me either.

He has an article in KitPlanes magazine with links to the drawings so you can grab them (free) and send off to have your own made with whatever material might work better.

Send me a PM with your address. I'm testing a new printer I have and wouldn't mind printing something useful to someone. the print material will be PETG in either black or gray, whatever color is in the printer at the time.

Edit: Found the link to the Kitplanes article one:
