Pretty unusual but this would have been bad if I been in the air. I’m taxing down the runway and was moving the stick left the right front & back when it jammed (could not move it full left. I couldn’t see anything wrong until I stopped & got out. Looking all around when I realized that a radio cable plug had fallen into the hole in the floor blocking the stick at the bottom!
