AuthentiKit Parts Directory

Welcome to the parts store for the AuthentiKit aircraft factory. Aeronautical engineering uses notoriously expensive parts but our AuthentiKit flight simulation controls are designed to use the lowest cost commodity parts and combine them with innovative 3D printing. Although the parts list is growing the aim is to keep it as short as possible and a key design criteria for any new AuthentiKit product is to reuse existing parts unless there’s really no alternative.

Most of the parts here can be sourced via Amazon/eBay and the prices shown here are indicative of what you might pay for an item. Click each item for more details. Sometimes it is better value to go to specialists particularly if you need several items. The alternative to self-sourcing is to buy the parts pre-bundled for the flight control you are building. simkitsupplies.com is the recommended supplier and they will be cheaper than self-sourcing unless you are buying in bulk.
