I was considering to use the TM TWCS for both Dual Throttle and Collective, but have decided to get another joystick for the Collective.
I do not consider the TM TWCS a good choice for a Lefty conversion. Buttons, Hats, Flapper pot and Slew joy are all mounted on the PCB’s. That makes it difficult to move them around.
Another drawback is that the pots, as far as I have been able to determine, is not your standard 10K fare. This is the main reason for me not using it for the Collective. I have no idea of where to find extra pots.
If anyone can find them, then please post about it and I will add that information to this post.
Here is a video where the TM TWCS is disassembled:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9Lz54rdaz0
