Great for Sims, the lack of throw will make Descent use a 6 month conversion at a minimum.

Perfect base for F16 simpits, incorrect stick for an A10

Split Throttle are the new Specialty, trying to bring back the SUNCOM addicts


stickbase from cougar - the paddle on the stick + throttle from Warthog = Perfect A10 Setup

stickbase from warthog + throttle from Cougar = Perfect F16 Setup (this setup is actually a current mod in the F16 Community)

Too Bad Thrustmaster does not sell these controllers separately or make rudder pedals

Combo A10- F16 Pit Pilot will be in heaven

Is that collar on the gimble shaft a throw stop?

No actually it's to remove the handle and replace it with another, they never made any others though (F22/ F35.....) though some extensions are available that just screw in using the coupling

And that Joystick actually does not move like your accustomed ... so there is no real "THROW" with Hall effect Sensors

I see, well that would be a nice improvement, as long as the pressure range is wide enuf. Much quicker.

The joystick gimble in my setup was always the weak spot.
