Yet another warthog slew upgrade


Deltaalphalima1

Recommended Posts

I just received and installed mine. Did the calibration but have yet to try it out. During the install, I was realizing how crappy my eyesight has become in my old age. :-(

 

Anyway... question...

This comes with two fixing plates. One appears to have a smaller aperture than the other. The instructions say to install the one that you prefer. I'm guessing that the only difference between the two is that one will limit the amount of stick movement?

Explanation:

 

If you’re not sure I would go with the square to start with, that gives you the maximum range of movement and full use of the axis.

 

The round is a little more realistic for some aircraft, and also more similar to a normal game pad. It also allows you to swing all the way around the outside more smoothly with hitting the corners, but at the cost of some range of motion on the diagonals.

 

Give them both try and see what you prefer, there is really no right or wrong :)

Slew Settings

 

What are you guys using for Axis Tune Slew settings for this mod?

 

 

I started out using the settings that Cap on the Grim Reapers recommended but it's not working out so great. Those are Curvature of 8 and Saturation of 36 but with no deadzone. The result is that there isn't enough movement of the cursor at small inputs and then when I increase the movement to get the cursor to move I overshoot my target. Cap isn't using this upgrade so it shouldn't surprise me that his settings don't work. I've messed around a bit with the settings but havnt found a good one yet.

I have mine set at the moment to No Dead Zone Curvature of 10 with the others set both to 100

thanks! I didn't see that.

 

That's interesting because I was thinking that it needed to be more linear than what I was already using. I'll try it out tonight.

So, at the risk of asking a really stupid and obvious question, why isn't it possible to simply affix a small knob or attachment to the existing slew device that is there. For instance, in less than 30 seconds, I was able to make a small knob with a plastic cap and a washer I had laying around. I haven't glued it to the end of the slew control yet, but when I hold it onto the end of the device, it seems like it will function well...Surely, someone must have tried this.

If it works for you go for it. The mechanism of the mod just seems to work much better than the original.

Nothing wrong with a bit of choice to be honest gives a little more flexibility to the user :thumbup:

With 3D printers becoming a thing, someone came up with a 3D printed hat that did exactly that and that was based off of the real slow cursor hat; it sounded very promising. But it turned out the low spring tension of the original slew cursor meant it was constantly pulled down by gravity, and even the slightest touch by a neighboring finger would push the new hat around. As I recall it, the original author of that mod got rid of it because it simply didn't do a good job.

 

That's the beauty of DeltaAlphaLima's mod. It doesn't just look good, it also feels very good.

 

I guess you have to just try it to get a feel for the difference it makes.

 

If you found a much easier solution that improves your hat, that is of course really cool and might be a great solution for all who don't feel like spending the money on this replacement, or who want an interim solution. :thumbup:

Just got mine, super easy to install and quality looks to be really nice. No problems re-calibrating and works lightyears better than the original nub. Cardboard box took some beating by the post but everything was intact.

@shu77, mine took around 50 days due to absolutely nothing that I could reasonably figure out. It took two days to cross the ocean, then sat a state away for over 45 days. Even the Post Office did not know why it hadn't cleared Customs. Customs said they'd never heard of it. I thought it was over. Then one day, it simply showed up, no further tracking updates. I don't know who/what to blame either, but Deltaalphalima1 is not it. Patience, my friend. It's on its way, and it's worth it!

Hope the Boarder closer extension won’t add to your woes either.

 

Postal staff may also be on furlough etc and the added fact that you live down under won’t help either.:(

 

Hang tight hopeful won't be much longer.
