Everything is good.

I had the same issue with the screw sticking out. If you just have it a bit more torque it goes in just fine.

gotcha, I just didn't want to strip anything. I used a slightly shorter screw, and all is flush and snug.


I can't test the WarBRD until tomorrow, but anxious to do so.

You'll love it. So smooth and precise. The software setup is archaic. There a YouTube video. Follow it to aT. Except I believe you there is a different PCB you use. You'll see what I mean in the top right corner. I'm not a home right now but if I remember when I get home I'll put on here which one to use

It works like a dream. My skills were improved since I use it.

I got her all configured just fine. Just did my inaugural launch and trap. I'm very impressed with the WarBRD. It does feel much crisper, and smoother.

I've mounted it up onto my Wheel Stand Pro, and I have it mounted to the right, my keyboard & mouse in the center, and the throttle to the left. (I like flying F-16 style with my controls). :-)

So far so good, I'm really liking the BRD!


(thanks for the pointers chief!)

No worries. Glad your enjoying it. I think I bust 50% less crates when slinging in the Uh-1 on the server I play in since I got the throttle and warbrd.

My "first" official mission via the WarBRD, (as of last Friday night).

Launched from the Stennis just fine, joystick controls as expected. I vectored into 2 separate bogey's, and managed to splash them. Had to SpamRAAM the first baddie, and followed up with the kill shot.

Was low on fuel, and called out to the tanker. I hit the basket on the first try... And, the KC-130 was in a turn. Man, this WarBRD is SO SMOOTH! Topped off the tanks, and then played around with the flight model. Again, this WarBRD is the Cats @SS! I'm really enjoying it.

Finally, I did the old TACAN back to the Stennis. Had a bolter on the first attempt, but then hit the 2nd wire on my second approach.


Overall, I'm really impressed. The WarBRD is indeed a further step up from my original TM WH Stick. (I'm using the WH stick with the WarBRD).


I would definitely, rather, highly recommend this stick base for anyone wanting a desktop setup!
