  1. Sorry about the lack of updates recently. I have been pretty busy getting the force sensing base finished, as well as another awesome mystery mod. Very soon I can showcase the first full metal one. Just today I held a sample of the aircraft grade Aluminium (or Aluminum for you crazy Yanks) threaded TM Adapter in my hands and it felt amazing! Its made from very high strength & high toughness Al used routinely in aircraft wings and waaay overkill for home desktop use, but thats why I love it so much! This thing is gonna be awesome! Now I have to design the USB controller whic
  2. The ANTs are here! Yay! After an eternity and two weeks, I can finally proudly present the new contactless Cougar Throttle ANT sensors. They are working very well and I am very excited about showing them off, although I have already messed up two sensors learning and playing around with the angle programming feature. This cool feature allows me to program the min/ max voltage output of the sensor to correspond to the exact min/ max angle actually used in practice. For the Cougar ANT pot this means 270° of rotation in total. The PCB design allows me to us

    Are you using pullup resistors on the CS and DATA lines of the shift regs? I use 10k pullups on both and that solved some problems with long leads for me.
  4. By now I have worked my way through all the emails and everybody should have an answer. I have two new mods in stock now, first is the 34,4mm spaced TLE5011 sensors. A while ago I had uploaded similar footprints to OSH Park as open source for DIY projects (https://oshpark.com/profiles/rel4y). Now I decided to offer these ready made for everybody who is not keen on messing around with surface mounted parts. The mounting holes are spaced in the standard 34,4 mm distance (Virpil, Baur BRD, GVL224 MagREZ, RAMS, etc) and the connection pins are normal 0.1 in spaced header pin holes. C
  5. I just made a new batch of CH mods. Emails will be answered tomorrow. Heres the current stock: 20x CH sensor (22€) 5x 12 Bit CH upgrade mainboard (30€) 10x 4021 shift registers (10€)
  6. Yes, last work to be done on the Warthog version is making the force sensing PCB Warthog compatible. Yeah, wow! He seemed to have had the exact same issue, these TM 5 pin connectors are just an absolute pain in the butt to source! I actually tried to establish contact via the email on Arends page, but I dont think anybody is still cheking it. But now I also should also have enough for the next 25 years or so. Awesome, glad to hear! I had to switch X and Y axis on the replacement slew as the new ministick has a larger footprint than the older one,
  7. All good, you are absolutely right to press me a bit on getting things done! My prediction was end of first quarter if everything goes fine, that was a bit optimistic I guess... Supply lines are jacked, some parts are really hard to come by and then I got sick. You now, the usual lame excuses! Just know that I am veeery close to having stocked or at least ordered all necessary parts for the force sensing mod. Honestly, I can hardly wait myself to assemble the first full blown serial prototype! So much time has been invested in designing and redesigning and messing around with electroni
  8. Just started answering all the emails. Quite a bunch of them have piled up, but I promise to work my way through in the next day. Heres prove that I havent been lazy over the weekend, as promised. These are from all the remaining components I still had in stock and they have been made into shiny new sensor electronics and USB adapters and CH upgrade mainboards and GMR sensors and Cougar Ministicks. Most of the CH mainboards and Cougar USB adapters are still missing their Arduinos. The ball bearings, plastic cases and Arduinos are already ordered and should come in within the next t
  9. You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for your friendly words and good wishes! I am out of quarantine now and feeling good! So its back to work, you great bunch have had to wait much too long already for my lazy ass to get stuff done! Over the last few days I managed to order all necessary electrical parts for the mods. As expected, prices have increased so I may have to add a € here and there. It will probably take around two weeks until Ill be able to ship mods again, but hopefully in the meantime I am able to show some cool updates & new projects I have been work
  10. The TQS ribbon cable has a 24 pin socket but there are only 22 male pins on the board connector. You probably need to plug it in either one row to the left or to the right, whichever way you look at it. That should fix it!
  11. In the CH hatswitches high quality OMRON tactiles are used. The exact type is OMRON B3F-1022. If you are skilled at soldering, you can easily desolder the POV tactiles from the PCB and replace them with new ones. I have done the same on several CH sticks. Good luck!
  12. The ronas had finally gotten to me and I was knocked out for a while.. While I wasnt really very sick past the first three days, its propably not a good idea sending stuff out to people all over the world. My quarantine is over this week and I will be making some more mods shortly. Sadly, some of the parts are hard to come by currently and chinese Arduinos have significantly increased in price for some reason.. Please dont despair, I will be back shortly with my lineup of mods. There is no giving up on the good old TM Cougar and CH stuff! Thank you guys for your continuous suppor
  13. I can actually make the USB adapter Target compatible, I just dont advertise it as I dont know about the legality of it.
  14. Lovely work and thanks for the kind words!! I simply love the good old CH stuff, its indestructible! Only suggestion, switch out the CMS hat for the "V" shaped one of your throttle. That would be more comfy imo. In case you havent had enough of modding yet and want to add the last 4-way hatswitch (DMS) to fully convert your Combatstick into a Fighterstick, I have one more spare CH Fighterstick conversion kit laying around. Have a look at my latest CH project here: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/214485-ch-products-upgrades/?do=findComment&comment=4539101
  15. Yes, but its not very pronounced. I have the cases laying around (still missing their bearings and threads), but the PCBs got hung up somewhere in the mail.. Answered! Well, it does fit in the TM F-22 Pro and F-16 TQS. Have a look here: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/188571-tm-cougar-ch-magnetoresistive-hall-sensor-kits/?do=findComment&comment=4415482
