I'd like to update my Cougar I just don't have the time nor will power to bring myself to do it because of this "sticky" action.

I have noticed that Winwing are currently in development of a F-16 throttle, looking at the review of the F-18 throttle they made its sounding good (avoiding the stick tho).

You might be interested in my Cougar Throttle hall sensor then. This will fix a jumpy pot. Check which mainboard type you have (instructions in the first post) and shoot me an email. While your at it you can also clean the Throttle mechanism and check if the resistance lever (operated by the little turn wheel) is seated correctly. It should be buttery smooth afterwards.

My TQS SN is 8218. It might be the earlier TQS then which have the hex screws. I am talking about the red little laptop mouse thingy, I only know it as clit mouse. It is about the worst slew input I can imagine... There's no way in hell I will keep that thing on my TQS, not sure what the TM engineers were thinking.

Oh, now I get the magnitude of my ignorance... From the beginning I was referring to the COUGAR TQS, while you were to the F-16 TQS. The older model...

So...whatever I mentioned is irrelevant...Sorry for the confusion. (Should I delete my previous replies to not confuse others also? I'm not familiar with the forum procedures...)

I received the kits today, there were only two sensors and something else if it was the usb conversion how does it work as I don’t see the place to plug a usb cable in plus no sensor for the throttle. Is the throttle parts shipped separately or are those the throttle and the stick coming separate?

The USB adapter looks like shown in the photo on the first page of this thread. You should also have received a link to a PDF with installation instructions. Is there not a little device with a red PCB and colorful cables attached in the package? :o

The throttle axis sensor is attached to the USB adapter and the corresponding magnet axle was either loose in the package or is wrapped in the bubble wrap beneath the adapter. Did you get the PDF? There are installation instructions with pictures, from there it should be clear which part is doing what.

Think I sent oyu an email the other night If not let me know haha! I've got some 767a grease inbound so I'm going to do a bit of a refreasher to the whole unit.

Does your Hall sensor kit just drop in and plug 'n' play with the current stock pCB?

I believe I just answered both your PM and email. On Sunday I only answered half of the emails, then I got distracted by something. The hall sensor is a plug and play replacement. It has the same connector as the original pot. You just stick in the magnet axle, seat the sensor and plug it in. Then recalibrate and done.

I just received the shipping notice from Shapeways. That means the newest gen CH sensor housings are on their way to me. Yay.
The final 12 Bit CH upgrade mainboards are also done and will go live together with the CH sensors.

I understand the setup now sorry for my confusion thanks for resending the pdf. I was hoping there would have been on showing the mounting of the sensor better and the how to on the stick but after the throttle I should be able to manage the stick.
