PeCa_Chuck's
Thrustmaster joystick tailpiece, 13 deg. angle
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis Conclusively, I hate to say, but would have to say that: If you are using or going to have Force Sensor Mod for Warthog or Cougar, I DON'T recommend to buy this tailpiece unless the design will be changed. Of course, the issue can be fixed like I did, but it's not permanent solution. And actually, it still slightly moves when I apply the force to the stick, even after the my temporary fix. I hope you'll look at the points carefully, Debolestis.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis For fixing the issue, I used hot glue gun at the point which is pointed out in the image. (I applied the solution for the other side of stick frame. It's simply I couldn't find the picture of it.) This makes the hole much tighter, thus the undesired movement almost stops.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis Plus, I found that TM's stock tailpice doesn't have true circle at the point above-mentioned. It's actually oval, unlike your tailpice. Thus it doesn't fit properly, I think. That difference must be the another reason of my issue.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis It actually related to the diameter and shape which I pointed out in the image. The cylinder is designed bit narrower than Thrustmaster's stock alloy tailpiece, thus it create some space between stick frame and tailpiece itself. That's the reason tailpice slightly moves longitudinally/laterally when the force is applied to stick.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis I got the package from Shapeways, and tested it. Unfortunately, my issue has NOT been solved, even after your correction. After a couple of testing, I found out the cause of the issue.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis Thanks for the answer. I've ordered it again.
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis Thanks for providing more detail of the correction, Debolestis. I wasn't sure about cause of the issue, but It looks like it has been fixed by your correction. Did you order the one, and confirmed the movement has been fixed?
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis And the pic in the right is attached to explain the wobble. For example, when the force is applied to forward, the stick wobbles about 3~5mm to forward as amount of movement. And after the stick traveled few millimeters to forward, if I pull the stick to my side for pitch up the aircraft, the movement happens again. It's really annoying problem, especially for Force Sensor Mod user. :(
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis Thanks for reply, debolestis. I'm using the tailpiece with Force Sensor Mod for Warthog grip. Stick shouldn't move at all as designed, but the wobble exists unfortunately. I hope you could test the tailpiece to confirm the problem. The DMS which I also purchased is working flawlessly, btw! :)
PeCa_Chuck @debolestis @debolestis Hi, debolestis. I got this type of tailpiece in last September, and I'm curious about the "corrections" you've made. Because, I have a problem of undesired wobble at the base of stick. The stick slightly wobble back and forth. I suspect that the size of holes in U-shaped part is causing the problem, and the holes should be tighter. If you tweaked size of the holes, please let me know.
