    Hey Guys,

    Sorry it's been a while since I posted an update.

    I have a hard deadline with delivering an USAF VR simpit controls hardware upgrade. These are commercial off the shelf Spec Tech products that will be in stock soon.

    I will post more soon, but basically these are Warthog stick and pedal conversions that implement real world stick forces without putting any strain on the plastic ball joint or keyway off the Standard Warthog base. Same with the TRP pedals.

    PointCTRL Update: The v2 FCUs are proofed and I am still working on the new HMS firmware. I found out that I went a bit to small for larger fingers and I will be offering at least two different FCU sizes for comfort and ease of use to the FCU buttons.

    I am still offering V1 and am up to 425 on the waiting list. If your number is less than 425 on Firecats list and want v1, just follow the direction in the first post.

    If your waiting on v2, stand by to stand by.

    I also want to thank everyone for their continued support and patience.

    Miles

      Congrats Miles. Glad the Fast Mover types at taking you up on the VR (and now joystick too??) improvements. And congrats on Mover giving you a shout out (and for you supporting Folds of Honor!)

              One of my controllers appears to have given up the ghost. Was working fine one minute, and then nothing. doesen't appear to be charging either.

              Any reset instructions? Battery replacement?

                Hey Harlikwin,

                Sorry to hear your FCU is DOA. The batteries should be good for several hundred charges. We can try swapping out the battery with the other controller to confirm if its the battery. I can just send a warranty replacement battery or FCU, whichever it is.

                If I don't have pics in the discord on how to change the battery I will put them in there tomorrow.

                  Thanks Miles, don't see anything on discord but I'm willing to try it. I can't quite figure out how to take them apart though, I can get one side, but not the other with the "straps".

                  It could very well be just the battery, I've had them for nearly a year with moderately heavy use. I also noticed that particular one was starting to run out of juice during play before.

                    Hi Miles,

                    Replied on the discord as well. Both batteries are like 4.06-4.07V so that seems like its not the issue. Swapping them also resulted in just the right hand one still working. So it seems like the issue is with the left hand unit, maybe the power button or LED or something.

                      Hey Guys
                      I will be going to ground for a few days, out on Block Island, Ri with the wife. I should be operational again in a few days.
                      Apologies for not getting everthing shipped I wanted to before we departed.

                      Thanks

                        Hey All,

                        I got sick again and have been out of the loop. I also had to change my trip to Davis Montham AFB to install the pit mods project.

                        There are a few backed up orders and warranty items that I am checking on the shipping status of, and a few that have yet to ship. I will be unboxing and doing a alcohol cleaning of all PointCTRL components as well as putting them under UVB lights to kill anything living that may be on a surface. I am just being cautious, I tested negative for Corona several times, and only had a series of Upper Respiratory Infections.

                        Sorry for delays, and not being active on here, or the PDs.

                        I am always way off with eta's, so I am not even going to try. I have been making improvements to a production system and have hired some help. I will post the progress as I get back up to speed physically.

                        Thanks for all of your support and patience.

                                  Ah yes, On the teams, we used to stick each other with Ringers at the end of a hard night of drinking. Would wake up a few hours later fresh and ready to go. Surprisingly, the sticks seemed to go better in our "enhanced states".
