Hi Debolestis,
I've had a critical breakup with my Warthog.
Something very similar to this user -> https://imgur.com/a/RYg3q

The Pictures of my accident can be seen here. https://forums.mudspike.com/t/the-5-...15?u=komemiute

I intend to buy this product here https://www.shapeways.com/product/DC...ionId=58829277
as a replacement.

Can you confirm me that the plastic is not going to be break in a year?

Note: I removed the big strong recentering coil from the bottom of the Stick so there's not so much stress applied to it.

Also, being in Europe, is there a way for you to print parts over here so there's no import taxes?

Plastic is nylon and is very strong but I cannot tell how long it will last. Time will tell. I have been selling them for year or so.
Shapeways prints in US and in Holland for Europe. There is no import taxes.

I ordered no detents warthog throttle part.



It worked as expected. There are no detents from 0 to 100%.

It was very easy to install, I only needed to unscrew 2 screws.

I stared to experiment with new tail piece. X36 to Warthog/Cougar. I think that X45 could also be used with it but I am not 100% sure.

Here is version 1.


And here it is installed.


Why I did this? I kind of like this grip, maybe it will be useful in the future. It also looks a lot like flight stick from elite dangerous. I still need to design new PCB for it.

I always thought the Elite dangerous stick was modelled after the X52.

Probably you are right but x36,45 and 52 are very similar.

Hello Debolestis

Some time ago I ordered from shapeways your hotas cougar locking nut in metal
This morning I had a chance to finally try it on my cougar but no joy
The two slots were too small compared to the original and needed to be enlarged, but this is not a big deal
The real problem is the thread of the locking nut
It's not correct and it will not screw on the cougar base.
I even tried to correct the thread a little bit filing here and there with my dremel but there is no way, it will not screw.
It doesn't matter since the shapeways guys were so nice to offer a refund but I really like this part and I would like to buy a working one
Is there any way you could review this part and adjust where needed?
on shapeways store it says the part is untested but I just had a look back in this thread and I saw the cougar locking nut mounted and screwed on the cougar base
So how come the part is untested?
do you have any idea why mine didn't work?
Is it possible some printing defect?
may be because is metal?
sorry for the many questions
Just trying to find a solution
