There's no "practical" way, true. There is, however, a way...

You can have TARGET assimilate rudders that are hooked up to a Cougar base.

Anyone else notice their right throttle handle seems rather loose? If I lock the 2 together you can't notice it. But I don't fly that way. The right throttle handle is a lot looser then the left and I'm not talking friction here. I'm talking mechanically loose, like it needs to be tightened.

Mine has a little play in it, but not nearly as much as some real jets I've flown, hehe.

to those who have had issues/needed to replace the Warthog:

mine has developed a problem, it triggers other button presses when the boat hat switch is in fwd or aft position and the throttle is moved.

Thrustmaster were helpful in telling me what they wanted me to try, opening it up to determine if it was connection / PCB related...and now we've established it's PCB related, they are giving me grief about having ordered it from SCsimulations, asking me to explain why SC no longer list it on their site. They are also claiming the invoice (in the box with the warthog from SCsimulations) relates to shipping only and not the sale of the HOTAS. The SC invoice does have a price stating its for joystick, and shipping is free, so TM are trying to do a dodgy it seems.

Has anyone else had a problem with thrustmaster like this?

Those that were allowed throttles to be fixed, did they get sent to US address or back to Europe?
thanks

Hi there,

Yesterday I received my Thrustmaster Warthog to replace my G940... After unpacking everything and were blown away by the feel of the HOTAS, I installed it and startet DCS A-10c... Throttle worked perfectly from the start, but I quickly realised that all the buttons on the joystick doesnt do anything... Except the trigger. When I press the Trigger (first stage only), all the buttons on the Joystick are pressed at the same time. I double checked this behavior in the Windows Game Controller panel...

Anybody heard of a problem like that? Anybody knows a solution?

Is it possible that I made a mistake when connecting the baseplate and the Joystick? Is it normal, that when the Grip is disconnected from the baseplate, all the buttons light up in the windows game controller panel?
I allready contacted my vendor and Thrustmaster directly, but havent heard back from either...

Thanks

SO i*m not alone!
Exactly the same problem for me.
After a lot of mail from TM, sending files,even a small movie they wanted me to send in the trottle so they can look what is wrong with it.

Sounds similar to the original problem in this thread:
EDforums

Seems both the throttle and stick have wires getting pinched easily.

It took about 10days for Thrustmaster to get back to me originally. All subsequent communications with them were answered within 24hrs.
I asked SCsimulations to contact TM to confirm I am a legit customer of the product. No answer from SCs.

Petherf - What city/country did they ask you to send yours to?
Makes me feel a little better i'm not the only one being interrogated.

Due to my impatience, I just called them Yesterday (Swiss Support). After 15 min waiting in Line with a nice waiting song, I could finaly talk to one of the support guys. Without any struggle he said they will repair or replace it.
I have to send probably only the base & Joystick in and should get a replacement soon... Now Im waiting for their Email where to send the Parts... :P

thanks for replying, was curious where i will need to send it to...unless they just send me the parts

TM have got back to me. Apparently the PCB they suspect could be problematic, is not the PCB in the big heavy throttle base that they previously asked me to open up.

Now they are asking me to open up the right throttle grip and check the PCB inside there. Something to look forward to doing tonight.

Take it easy with the screwdriver so you dont slip!
Strange that you have to open up the trottle.

Could I try resetting the throttle or that would render it totally dead?


Ok, after my holidays, and lots of e-mail interchange with TM, I didn't need to send back the throttle. They simply sent me a new circuit board and USB cable, and after I replaced it my throttle came back from the dead.

My only concern now is how to prevent it from "bricking" again. Updated to FW 20 but I don't know whether that's a definite solution or not. Has anyone experienced this problem with the latest firmware? Seems from this thread no-one else has run into this problem since January...

update on mine:
I opened the side of the right throttle as instructed by TM, but it didnt come out cleanly...something was caught then all of a sudden some of the individual wires came out of the white plug that connects to the PCB in the right throttle. Its next to impossible to put the small wires back into the white connector plug, due to them being very short in length and recessed in the right throttle. Even if i manage to get one of the wires slotted back into the white plug with some fine pliers, others might fall out i the process.

So i suspect my original problem could have been related to that same very plug, i.e. the wires are not secured in the white plug properly.

I took a photo and emailed it to TM saying that i am done with messing about with this throttle..."just give me an address to mail the entire throttle for TM to repair it".

They finally got back today saying TM will just send me a new throttle, i don't need to send my broken throttle to them. So fingers crossed the new one is perfect and i have the spare broken one as a paper-weight.

Ok, so here is the run down on 05/08/2011 in the morning I received #00367 from my wife as an early Birthday present, spent all Sunday afternoon installing in my cockpit but did not installed in PC until Monday 05/09/2011 @ 6:00 PM. WOW!! the best freaking set up I have ever put my hands on, 20,000 freaking miles away from my made in China X52. I'm a noob on sims and for the first time I was pulling gun kills and sticking landings like I never have before. I smoked Migs for 2 hours that evening and powered down PC. Tuesday 05/10/2011 6:00 PM was a repeat of the day before, I am freaking loving it at this point, again I splashed Migs for 2 hours with the old Rhino. Come Wed, I am sitting on the runway ready to go lay down my authority on those pesky Migs, I push the throttle to full power and nothing happens What...the...F! eek
Anyway, long story short, I do my due diligence in the all the forums and web for possible explanation and fixes but to no avail. And like one poster put it, quite literately the "lights are on but nobody is home", the throttle lights up but does not register. Device Manager says that it is unable to start devices, no matter on what USB port I connect it too. Oh, and yes, I tried all the other fixes that have made their way in the forums without success. My wife bought this $548.00 (tax inc) stick and throttle and it only worked for 4 hours? WHAT THE H(ELL)ECK IS THIS? Cuss Almost a $600.00 piece of hardware and only got to use for 4 hours before it decided that it had enough and left the party without even letting me know why (referring to TM being tight lipped about the problem)! Apparently this has been going on since release and no info about this shows up in their site. I'm lucky that my wife bought the WH at Fry's Electronics (kinda like Best Buy here in Cali) and it is about 15 minutes away, I will exchange it for a new one tomorrow, hope and pray that it does not go the same way as #00367, because that will just be sad for as setup that is just simply awesome frown

Honestly I wouldn't take it back to Fry's. Fry's will just slap a open box discount sticker on the box. Then some chap behind you will see the discounted sticker and take it home to find the same frustration. I recommend contacting Thrustmaster support for assistance and replacement.

Nope! for $500.00 plus USD I expect this thing to work when I get it home. My wife did not pay good dollars just so I can be grounded for who knows how long. I took #00367 back and got another box off the shelf, #07515. So far is working and really hope it stays that way because I love this thing! WinkNGrin
Fry's will probably send it RMA and get a reworked replacement to restock. In a previous life I used to work as a product development specialist in the Silicon Valley and that is how we used to handle RMA's from big stores like Fry's or BestBuy, at least that is how it was done back then.
