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.

Regards,
Mack

Deltaalphalima1 congratulations on your WHTM slew mod many said it could not be done or promised to do it for nothing and never delivered. The fact that you have produce two Modifications at different price points is great I wish you only success. I would deffinetly purchase a unit but my grip is a real one with the real switches so I just don't need it.

Now a bit of advice for the guys that have purchased it praise in public he needs to hear he is doing a good job and future customers need to know he is a trust worthy business. IF you have a problem contact him first let him solve the problem this is a very small niche market, sport it cheers

Thanks Deadman for the support, it means allot

I really appreciate the second part you said, since it is a new product there will inevitably be a few issues to work out. If we can work together to solve them and improve for the future then that’s great for everyone.

At the time I’m writing this I have 3 more pre-orders I can sell, I’m limiting the first batch to 30 units to try and keep it manageable, the last thing I want to do is disappoint anyone.

I’m doing all of this in my free evenings and weekends so there is unfortunately a limit on what I can do. With that said I will do everything I can to get them out quickly. I'm still on track for most shipping in mid June, but if I need to delay slightly because I’m not 100% happy with the product and need to make changes then I will.

Thanks Everyone!

Glad to have a cheaper option...unfortunately right now i could not afford the more expensive one but i am sure the price tag is right for its quality...
Looking forward to receive it and i hope will be easy to install as i am not really a diy guy...
Thanks
