Oh I was very happy to hear A2A was looking at a Partnership with ED. I use their products exclusively when P3D, no other product comes close for GA flying. IF they were to bring their B17 with accusim to DCS, man that would be a dream come true.

Although I was rather surprised to see our Matt confined to a wheelchair, I had absolutely no idea that he was in one.

1) Hall sensor for at least the throttle, plus...
2) CRAPPY range and antenna pots. The antenna pot in particular, is notorious for losing its center detent.
3) Misaligned speedbrake and dogfight switches. I got the aluminum housings for them years ago.

Fixing those issues, plus making it an individual USB standalone controller, would be my goals for such a unit. Switches on the base that mirror the F-16's ENG/JET START panel would be a plus, but not a necessity.

The one other thing that I'd REALLY love, though, would be a better/more realistic detent system, if one can be done without a throttle rail.
Actually I have this HOTAS as well. I've had it for a number of years.. Yes I did have similar issues as the ones that you described. I contacted thrustmaster and they were nice enough to furnish me with all of the switches that I requested for a minimal cost. (this was several years ago). and I bought the hall sensor mod from" IJ."
That cost about 400 USD. I cant remember the actual cost as this was allso some years ago. But anyway I really loved that setup. But I had a lot of trouble trying to install it into the new DCS so I bought a Warthog to replace it. So now I can't wait until the F/A-18 stick is released. Thrustmaster had a fantastic design idea with the ability to interchange the stick with other models. So after all of this time they have finally implemented this idea. It's now becoming a reality... WOW

What a wonderful experience!

The highlight of the show was meeting many of you, or clients, and getting to hear your feedback on our product. It was great to put some faces to user names and hearing what DCS World means to you. Some of the stores were quite inspirational.

Another aspect was meeting with Thrustmaster to discuss what comes after the F-16C and talks with companies like A2A and Orbx about potential cooperation. Skies the limit!

For those that made the show, thanks again for all the kind words and your continued support. We cannot do this without you.

Orbx work is really nice, And his new stuff is really good, Getting him onboard for texture terrain would be good.

I hope that Thrustmaster releases the updated Cougar with the fixes that RogueSqdn mentioned as well as any other feedback others have given TM over the years. It is a good combo that continues to serve us well, it needs some love to continue the fight! The R&D is paid for which should theoretically cut down on costs of putting an updated set out there.
I have upgraded my Cougar with the pots on my Cougar stick from rel4y and have been holding out on upgrading my throttle. I an nervous about opening it up and making a mistake, I do not have a spare. Still on the fence about it.
Hopefully a fair amount of pre-orders for DCS F-16 came in to justify TM going forward with their plans. We should not forget the Falcon 4.0 BMS crowd as well! I feel the market is there and ready. I will gladly buy the set if they release it.
