  1. This is something that I was thinking about lately...IRL the stick is tilted 13° forward and its base 6° backwards, resulting in the stick being 7° forward from vertical...(which is quite upright). But... the seat is reclined 30° backwards! So, the stick is 37° forward in relation to the pilot. Thus, for someone sitting in front of a desk, maybe 13° is less than what would be needed, to have the stick in a similar position to the pilot's. In this regard, I wouldn't consider it so unnatural. What do you think?
  2. Oh boy! I was anticipating for this update since the first teaser pics of the new FCC! So, it's getting closer to becoming true! If a kickstarter is needed, count me in! or as they say: " Shut up and take my money!" What a great homage to Arend also... I don't want to downplay your other projects though! The contactless ANT and RNG upgrades are very important also!(I'm looking forward to them!) ...Basically all mods for Cougar are important (I can't stress enough how much!), especially when there is currently no alternative replica in the market and no plans for a new version on the hori
  3. Hi Rel4y! Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback! I'm glad that you're ok in these dire times! That's the most important! Take care and everything else will return back to normality (with the addition of the updated "FCC3"... ;) ), eventually...
  4. Oh, now I get the magnitude of my ignorance... From the beginning I was referring to the COUGAR TQS, while you were to the F-16 TQS. The older model...:doh: :blush: So...whatever I mentioned is irrelevant...Sorry for the confusion. (Should I delete my previous replies to not confuse others also? I'm not familiar with the forum procedures...)
  5. I rechecked and yes, mine are all Philips screws. FYI my SN is in the 299xx range. It seems different batches may have this kind of differences. I think it is good to be mentioned for anyone that writes guides or howto's to have in mind... Regarding the "little red thingy", what do you mean?...I am afraid I lost you there...:P
  6. Interesting...I've recently corrected the SPDBRK's misalignment and I clearly remember that all of the screws were Philips type...:huh: EDIT: By the way, kudos for taking the initiative to make this update , which even if I don't seem to need yet (since my TQS is relatively unused), it seems inevitable to fail, as rumor has it... Thanks for all your efforts man! :thumbup: I can't stress how important your work is! You give the chance to this very old cougar equipment to serve for many years yet...at least, until somebody (i.e., company) decides to reincarnate the beast...:music_whistling
  7. First of all Happy New Year! So...did you have the chance to try PG44a? I'm in search of appropriate damping grease for improving my Cougar TQS's performance and feel and any such information is appreciated!
  8. :surprise: Oh man! This is surreal!!! Today I was pondering how unfortunate I have been that I didn't have the chance to own an FCC3, as I was thinking how to upgrade my abysmal original Cougar gimbals. And...here it is! A new Force sensing gimbal candidate in the making, featuring a striking resemblance to the FCC3! Oh boy! By "Electronics are updated though", do you mean that this, indeed, could be considered an FCC3 update? If this is the case, then don't, for the love of God, dare to quit this project!!! Ever!!! :D :thumbup:
  9. Warthog has a tendency to break though, when used with a force sensing mod, as many have documented. The realsim one, has eliminated this weakness.
  10. I've seen that too. Although initially excited, I'm not optimistic at all about the price, considering the price of the other products... I'm often checking though, just in case...
  11. I've got the message! Thank you very much for your kind gesture! I was afraid that this would be the reason, but I couldn't believe that rel4y hadn't secure admins' consent...maybe he can now?... Pity indeed! He also seemed to know very well what he was doing. At least this is how I perceived it, when he explained his favor for M/R instead of Hall sensors, when the last are, currently, all the rage. And to think that just today I got a note from the post office that my throttle hall sensor has arrived... Let's hope this ends well for this thread... BR, Tazman
  12. Really?!!!!! I don't know if I'm being indiscreet, but I'd like to know the reason...
  13. Besides the other fellows replies, I 'd like to add a video that, IMHO, gives a very good idea of the differences between the two in terms of quality approach , materials and adjustments capabilities:
  14. I wish VKB or Virpil would create an F-16 HOTAS! That would be awesome and in a quality level that's far beyond TM's league! They would be collector's items!
