Bases compatible with Cougar stick

I think my Cougar base is going bad.  It's spiking and restarting via Cougar Control Panel/calibrating isn't doing it quite.

 

Aside from Virpil, what bases out there are compatible with the Cougar stick?  Warthog Mag Base, what else?

I replaced the two potentiometers of the base with contact-less sensors made by @rel4y ... much less expensive than replacing the whole base.

I also did this on my cougar, but then eventually bit the bullet and got a more modern base/stick.

The cougar was a great stick back in the day but it's chalk and cheese to how new ones perform.

For the OP, I believe winwing base with adapter is another option you can add to the list.

Rel4y will also release a force sensing mod that will fit in the Cougar base.

Be interested to see, my cougar is still sitting in a cupboard here so I could always get her out again if something nice like that happens 🙂

The VKB and Winwing options require stick modification by replacing the bottom connecting sockets to their proprietary ones.

The true compatible bases with PS/2 socket connections besides Thrustmaster are from Realsimulator, Brunner, and Virpil. These are simple plug and play and your stick remains intact in its original form.

Semantics really, but TM uses a 5 pin Mini-DIN, not a six pin Mini-DIN, (PS2).
