I got a couple of the Warthog Throttle detentes - the dual stage AB is just excellent!

Pictures!

I got the centre detent and the dual stage AB parts. You can choose the colors to get printed, so I got different ones so I could easily tell them apart.

I didnt realise it at the time, but I really wanted the "centre detent with reverse". That part has the centre detent, and a detent into engine shutoff. The Warthog uses separate switches for engine shutoff, so I think you really do want at least a detent at that end to show you the your at the end of the throttle rage.

Not a big problem, a file will fix it pretty easily.

This is the centre detent fitted. Its blue Thottle is fully forward.

Side view, split throttle. The Left Throttle is sitting over the stock engine cutoff detent (black plastic). The blue part raises the throttle slightly to match the existing detent. You can clearly see the centre detent.

The purple part is the dual stage AB. Left Throttle is at full MIL power. You need to push it over the first bump to get AB, then over the second bump to get max AB.

Its almost perfect out of the box for the F-15C. I didnt need to adjust DCS at all.

Both fit so well that I dont need the original cover plate to hold them in place.

Very happy with my purchase.

EDIT:
Did need a slight curve (approx -10) on the throttle axis for the F-15C to get 100% power to line up perfectly.

sry for late reply debolestis. I have revisited my DIY approach. I think I will try that and if it will not work out well I will get back to you. thx for now anyway. I appreciate your technical interest in the small details.

Hey Debolestis!
Would you be so kind to give me a pin layout (dimensions) of the 4 pin PS3 Thumbstick please? I have looked everywhere but cant find any datasheet or breakout schematic and even if it was supposedly built by ALPS there is no 4 pin version in their portfolio. I have already asked Sokol, but he doesnt know where to find this as well. Id appreciate the help!

PIN 1: POLE (not needed)
PIN 2: POLE
PIN 3: VCC
PIN 4: GND

Pins 2-4 are the ones you need.

Here is what I used



There are 2 poles for each axis, but don't use them at the same time because they are offset to each other 180 degrees and negate each other. Use one or another.

No no electrically it's clear, I need the pin distances and dimensions. So where the holes need to be in the PCB and how large they should be.
