Hi, (don't miss to examine the initial post #1)

As I'm right now "knee-deep" in work , I find not really the time to be here at the forums as present as I would like to be... but,

I'm right now in talk with some company's to make things like the FFB Cougar happen.


What I need would be a small number of "volunteers" who would like to have this mod...
And this is not meant that I want to collect money or something...

All I need are serious meant E-mails with the contend that you would like to purchase one of it.
That would help me to convince someone to do this "experiment" with me.

If all works out as planned I would sell the first mods of this kind only for the material costs (with or without the Cougar - you can add/remove the cougar afterwards without problem within minutes) to the 10 first people how mailed me.

Mail to : infoätleftside-limiteddotcom subjekt: FFB-Cougar

The FFB base will have a "nice looking" cover and optional buttons .- that's all I can say up to now.

Ahm... - and a "Blueprint":

Dude,

I'm an Attack Pilot - I'll leave it at that. In any case, I fly Helicopters, and you're idea is awesome. I would not only imagine that your design would be great for simple entertainment reasons, but also for actual training, particularly with respect to a sim such as Black Shark that simulates very well how these advanced aircraft actually fly.

I'll be following your product closely. Keep up the good work bro.

Sorry!

I have a Cougar and a Sidewinder FFB2
and after I did this:http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=73042
I'm confident that I will also master what is described in this thread and marriage my both sticks- (inspired by this postings: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.ph...67#post1302267 )
I have a good guess how it is done ,
But all pictures are missing .
Question:
did someone something similar and/or have the missing pictures/ Blueprints for me ?
(BTW: Did send URZE a several pm's a year ago -no response)
Every Info is welcome!

This is what I accomplished so far:

I bought these "Gardena" hosepipe connectors that fit into the grip almost perfect (after I drilled/cut one end of them) in to the Grip of the TM-Cougar
(thanks to hog_driver111th ! ) - they cost about 3€ each.


Than I used a old housing of a Bass-box to a make a prof of concept.











So I have pinned down all necessary dimensions... and it's shaping up very nice.

The next step is to open up the MS-Sidewinder FFB 2 to make a hole and install a counterweight (...somehow...). - I made a little test run and found out that a counterweight is absolute necessary , because the Cougar grip is much too heave to get hold in position by the FFB motors alone - but it should be no problem with a counterweight. -but right now it feels already very nice... and I'm thinking about to let the grip of the MS-Sidwinder untouched and do something similar like you can see on the pictures (but more sturdy - and not with cable-fixer ) -instead of removing the grip completely.






And get a 5pin ps-2 connector to let the base of the cougar communicate with the grip without modifying the cougar at all .

I hope also to be able to place the base of the TM-Cougar inside the Bass-box- after I installed the counter-weight like it is seen in urze's video- to get a clean compact look.

Will make a new post when I have done some progress...


And BTW:
Vettel is F1 World Champion 2011 !!!!!

It's a good idea, but I think the force feedback will be much smaller, and I'm not sure that the construction will withstand the load

Hi Eponsky_bot,
It was somewhat OK and the stick did stayed in place - but I missed the "extra-puch" I felt with a unmodified MSFFB 2...
After many testing I bought a second used MS-FFB2 and did this:
