Would be interested in a how-to-install guide, is there one? I'm not very good with electronics; it takes me 3 attempts to plug in a USB drive biggrin

Wow, that upgrade is exactly what the Warthog throttle should have shipped with in the first place!

Unfortunately, the force-sensing version lacks a click-down, but if you've seen a mil-spec slew transducer before, that's accomplished by literally placing a pushbutton at a right angle to the whole transducer and having a lever push down on it when the transducer as a whole slides back onto the lever. It's very bulky, and the Warthog throttle has no internal space for it due to the screw wells holding the grip together.

I think the space sim crowd would prefer the ALPS microstick version anyway, just for the ease of holding it to max deflection over time for strafing's sake.

If anything, though, what I really want to know is how they accomplished encoding analog axis values into the digital SPI format that the Warthog throttle is expecting. That alone would give me some ideas regarding that surplus A-10 throttle conversion project I keep putting off, as far as using an actual TM Warthog throttle PCB goes.

The circuit associate to transducer have a place for connect a extra button, an user placement for this button:

In fact 'analog to I2C' - see there:

I have my new Slew control in and working.....it's a million times better now - actually, it now works instead of the fumble that it used to be.
