This is a MMaister hardware mod by made a Hungarian Virtual pilot(VO101). The default idea was the EvenStrain gimbals mod, but this has been improved.

I'm using this mod 12 years ago and works perfectly.

I used many pots, but now with hall sensors, gratitude for rel4y!

Just a quick headsup, the next batch is underway with the Cougar Joystick sensors being almost done. By the end of this week I will make the new Throttle sensors and the USB adapters will most likely be made at the beginning of next week. It is really a lot of soldering, but I am going as quick as I can!

I had to increase shipping prices by 0.5€ as the mail service increased its prices. Also the Throttle digital GMR sensor is now 15€ because TLE5011 prices have somehow skyrocketed.

The preorders will most likely be shipped mid next week.

Thank you Rudel and glad to hear!

I am honestly amazed by how much interest there still is in the Cougar HOTAS, I didnt expect that. I mean I love my Cougar as well, but you would have thought most people switched over to Warthogs or the russian stuff.

I expect that the upcoming DCS F-16 will trigger a lot of interest on second hand Cougars, so it really pays to keep ours in tip top shape ... besides the Cougar has one virtue that the Warthog hasnt: The Foxy configuration utility

I earlier planed to change the Cougar to Hotas Warthog. I tested the new TM HOTAS, but I don't like the Warthog stick mechanics and Rudal_chw wrote well! Cougar has a Foxy, Warthog hasn't.

My squadron members most use the Warthog, only some older members and me use the Cougar. Now I'm very happy, because rel4y made hall sensors for Cougar!

I have another Cougar for my son, and it will get hall sensors too.

Cheers!

Do you still have any of the Cougar Joystick sensors left? I would like to order some.
