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 got to open up my Throttle this evening and look at the board for the supply you said in the email. I believe is a later model so should be fine, but I'll double / Triple check.

It honestly never seemed necessary to me as the stick sensors are really self explanatory to install. However, I believe there are some YouTube tutorials on Cougar disassembly which may help. Make sure to remove the small hex screws of the Gameport connectors to access the stick PCB, that may cause the only hiccup I can think of right now.

What do you want to know about throttle sensor mounting? There is not much to it really, just remove the old pot, stick in the magnet axle, stick in the sensor and your done. Everything only fits in one way.

I shipped the first January batch today. Id like to apologize for taking so long. The tracking numbers will be mailed out tomorrow.

Just wanted to give a few quick updates, while I am overall very busy with work right now. Last weekend I finished testing the 12 Bit CH upgrade mainboards and new rev 1.3 CH sensors. The new CH sensors fit every CH device plug and play and now finally have the correct spade crimps. This is what the final products look like: (Lower right is a rev 1.2 CH sensor board, these are the only ones to fit the CH pedals Z axis. This one goes to GaryR as replacement for the sensor board we grilled together. )




Btw, can someone send me a broken Warthog (pinky/ thumb) switch? Id love to make a replacement with high quality japanese OMRONs.

What batch did you send? for the CH gear or the Thrustmaster?
Cause I'm waiting for the CH and didn't get nothing on my mail about this.

The batch consisted of shift regs and TM mods. Like I said, I just finished testing the 12 Bit CH upgrade mainboards and new rev 1.3 CH sensors this weekend. I have only made two of each so far, but it will be going full steam in a few days. Dont worry you are at the very top of my preorder list Cheetah.
