rel4y,

These look really great. And compared to the cost of the other options a good value.

My only question is I have zero experience with MMjoy2. What does DCS see when you plug this in? A standard HID Device like when you plug in a Bodnar board or any other usb device?

DCS and Windows see whatever you set in MMJoySetup USB name, up do 10 characters, e. g MMJoy2 (default name), MyDIYStick... Sierra9999

When device is plugged Windows install using their HID drivers, or, is PnP.

Thanks Sokol

That was the answer I was looking for.

Another cool thing about MMJoy is that you can adjust both VID and PID, so you can adjust the order of your HID device in terms of hardware numeration as you like.

And I can also make it TARGET compatible.

I actually got asked this question last week already and my answer was I honestly dont know. I expect CH to use the same type of pots in this piece of hrdware as in all their products, but I have no experience with it. I asked him to send me some pictures of the internals, as I cant find any on the internet. But he is currently not at home if I understood correctly.

If you could send me a picture, or maybe link me one from the internet I could probably give you an answer.

All CH's stick, rudder and throttle use the same CTS HP 100 potentiometer, linear (response) type B, 100 K.

Exception is Quadrant, there is used small square plastic Bourns pot.

The major difficult is the fact that in CH stick pot pole is part of gimbal - remove pot, gimbal fall apart.

In my CH's mods I leave pot (steel) pole as part of gimbal, cut off the resistive trail support and glue the magnet needed for contactless sensor in pole end.

In throttle, the grip is attached to a "drawer" that move a lever attached to throttle pole.



The "drawer" seem from above.

Ok, thanks Sokol. My normal CH pots work quite fine, I initially had some trouble because of the reasons you mentioned however. They had to be able to take non axial loads, but the ball bearings inside handle that quite well. Then I guess I cant help people with the CH quadrant if these are using different pots. For some reason I can find no inside pictures of the CH quadrant on the webs...
