The R2 is for the elite as it incorporates the same sensors used for stress tests by the likes of the European Space Agency, Airbus, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority etc. Here are some pictures of the quality control process and of the force displacement curves. I just received a Gunfighter and have not had a chance to set it up and try it out yet. These deformations will be detected by the sensors and interpreted as an applied force.

The moystick system uses a suspended arrangement to offset dimensional variations between different Cougar bases. I did have a button on the grip go bad, so bought another one off Ebay and just transferred it’s grip over to my base. I would personally replace at this time if it were me.

Focus Cougar related questions on one site so that the developers and those involved in beta testing the Cougar, as well as those very knowledgeable about it, can address issues directly.

These deformations will be detected by the sensors and interpreted as an applied force. I was unable to use them since then, but I continued using the cougar throttle none-the-less.

Updated firmware, software, documentation, translations. So I have a few joustick. I’ve not had any sticktion issue that people seem to clamor about either.

Similarly, the forces for maximum displacement are replicated although these can be reduced to suit personal preferences. Should I pursue a retrofitting of the cougar, or just buy the Warthog instead?

The hoyas is available in two models: But let me assure you that the 17 to pound selection needs to be secured as firmly as possible to the cockpit or the desk.
