Anyone have experience with a control stick replacement for the yoke or extended baggage they want to share?

I had an extened baggage installed when I had my aircraft recovered. I like it and it has worked out great. I stow my survival gear in it and still have room behind the seat for other cargo. There are a couple of pictures on my web site www.montanabyair.com under Maule info. I do have the 337 if that would help.

I only know of one attempt to covert to a stick. The fuselage it was done on was sold a couple of times and so far as I know the forces and engineering were never completed.
Personally I prefer the yoke for ease of access/egress, especially when wearing waders when on floats and trying to get out fast while on a flowing river.

I was doing some ski flying last week and pulling my right ski up first to reduce drag. With my right hand on the throttle/flap handle, I found it difficult to get full deflection of the aileron with my left hand. I wouldn't have had that problem with a stick. I agree with you on the room for waders, bunny boots, etc.

Ever flown a Piper Clipper? Side by side seating and sticks suck. Of course I'm old and fat, in my 20's I probably wouldn't have even noticed the difference.

Never flown a Clipper. I'll have to ask one of my mechanics for a ride. I fly HH60s now and flew T-37s in training. Like everything in aviation, it's a tradeoff!
