Hello all,

My Cougar Throttle Pot has begin to fail. It will not maintain it's settings and drifts from idle to about 20% input. I'm willing to pay a reasonable price if anyone has a spare and is willing to part with it.

Thanks,

Thanks for the heads up. I sent an email a ways back and I'm still awaiting a response. I'm exploring every available option until something works out.

You need to talk to Olivier Beaumont aka "RedDog". He hangs out at viperpits.org and global falcon. I've even seen him at the DCS boards. After the breakup of Frugals, the community is tricky to track down.

You could replace it with a Hall Sensor.
I got mine from www.cubpilotshangar.net

I replaced the pots in my stick with his hall sensors and it's a world of difference.
I also have the sensors for my throttle and rudder pedals but haven't had time
to change them out.
