Just wanted to add my two cents regarding the force sensor upgrade.

I'm always combing the forums here looking and waiting for diligent and clever folks to come up with better solutions to shortcomings in my flight sim hardware. Happens all the time with flight sim gear because they're simply never quite perfect. I'm always looking to make things just a little bit better.

When looking for Mods, I want things to be easy to install, look good, and just work. I have expendable cash, what I ain't got is time to waste on crap that doesn't work as advertised. That's why I wait to pull the trigger until I really like what I see and get some honest feedback from folks.

Delta's force sensor slew upgrade is fantastic. Yea, as stated, it's a tad on the pricey side but I'm firm believer you get what you pay for when it's done correctly. I'm also pretty sure the cost is wrapped up in the sensor itself, and when you use it, you understand why. As others have said, using a force sensor takes a few minutes to "get" but man, not sure I'll ever go back when it comes to a slewing device.

At the risk of sounding like a paid advertisement, I just wanted to say thanks to Delta for not only the quality he put into the work, but the time he spent designing, building, and shipping all this stuff. It's an effort - and it's appreciated. Hell, I even asked him a bunch of other electronic questions after the purchase, and he took time to answer them all for me, and in great detail.

I see lots of folks working on various upgrades and mods, stating they're going to do this, or provide that, but in the end, hope wanes and the thread dies a slow death and the mod never comes to fruition. You know what I'm talking about. It's great when a mod is finally completed, is available in quantity, and works as advertised.

Anyway, I don't post much but did want to provide some honest feedback for Delta. It's the least I could do.

Attached are some photos I took of my install with a few things I noticed and appreciated, and are examples of the kind of things I look for when sniffing out these kinds of hardware mods. They make a difference.

The force sensor slew works great and this new one he's working on looks great as well. I look forward to some reviews of this new slew switch.
