Howdy gents,

Something has come up and so I'm here to gauge interest in a gently used, fully functional HOTAS Cougar installed with the Uber 2 Nxt gimbals/Hall sensors, throttle Hall sensor/linkage with the "Cougar U2 NXT" name plates on both joystick and throttle, and stock TM Elite rudder pedals. I have no idea what a asking price should be, any thoughts?

There are some minor scuffs, but very good shape. smile In that 2nd and 3rd pic, that is a carpet fuzz on the upper part of the throttle base. Sorry didn't see it until after I uploaded the pics...

Oh sure - using the Thrustmaster software. smile I use it in all my modern sims, and since it still uses a gameport connector for the rudder pedals into the base of the stick - old sims see it all as one device.

The upgrades basically replace the gimbals and potentiometers for very precise and smooth feel. These upgrades went for a lot of $$$. Looking on eBay, the HOTAS Cougar in and of itself, lightly used, are still going for over $300 US.

I would say it errs on the more stiff side. It has a rubber dampener around the base of the stick that can be removed for less stiffness.

I'm a little surprised there isn't more interest - these things used to be sought-after.

Still not sure of a price yet... I'm selling as I had other plans for this HOTAS that can no longer happen. So now it will either serve as a backup to mine and not get used, or be sold. Hence why I was wanting to see what offers I might get. smile

I was going to do more with my study (dual setup, for LAN) - but my living arrangement plans have changed. Now I have this one as an extra - and I don't need it any more.

Oh man. Your cougar is immaculate! My NXT cougar has lots of paint scuffs from the hours I have put them through, but fourteen years will do that. The one thing I wish I had done was get the hall sensor throttle mod. Now that Cubpilot is no longer with us, that is not possible anymore. I'm surprised your setup has not sold yet. For those who don't know, the Uber II NXT is state-of-the-art, and the gimbals designed and CNCd by Ian Johnston are NASA grade kit. They are so precise you can write your name using your fingertips on your screen, and the progressive resistance the springs provide make for little resistance around center but strong pressure at the edges.

I never could get in on the NXT gimbal runs. Each time I was up for one I ended up needing the funds for something else like new kids on the way, house payment, groceries, etc... I am certainly interested in that setup for sure. Come up with a price there ArgonV and let me know.

Right now I'd give you a case of beer and the number of a snaggly toothed woman with a flat head I know that lives in Houston....lets just say she knows how to throw a party! cheers

Seriously though see what you can think of as a fair price for it and I'll let you know.
