Thanks.
Even if it falls off that's not a big deal. It's not like you're going to take the hand of the cyclic in a helicopter, because even if trimmed perfectly you'll still going to do a lot of micro-input all the time.

FoxHoundcn I have a few questions if you dont mind, by the way this looks very promising!

- What company do you represent?

- Have you an agreement for distribution? What are you sales channels going to look like?

- What will be the guarantee and how will we be able to have the unit repaired/replaced in case of problems?

- Ever though about having you products distributed by a major player (like thrustmaster for instance)

Maybe not Thrustmaster as it is a huge corporation that is only interested in maximizing profits and not in satisfying needs of sim community. But how about VIRPil? They have the capital to invest and are still small enough to care about the community needs. They seem quite passionate and will for sure be able to appreciate what you have achieved!

We are a startup company, very small, named Gauss. There is currently no suitable channel, especially in foreign markets. But we promised that it was not artificially damaged. Permanent warranty. Free for one year and then paid.

Thanks for the video, seems to be strong enough to handle the TM grip weight.

But, IIRC, you would normally press and hold the trim button (which would disable the FF effects while held), move the stick to a new position and then release the trim button and the FF effects would come back and hold the stick in the new position.

The current joystick has a custom spring force in addition to the FF.You can decide for yourself whether it works.
