  1. Thanks for all the help lads! I managed to repair my pots! I struggled a lot trying to repair the connection by soldering, then I got enlightened and grabbed my pencil! Some graphite coating did the trick! Finally I finished the throttel. Here are some pictures: Only one problem left: The red lever is very very noisy, practically unusable. But the pot is fine. Can it be interference from the other cabels? Should I shield them somehow? It's input and ground is coming from the other pot, the wiper is standalone of course (just as it was originally).
  2. marcost: Thanks. Now at least I know how I damaged it. I will handel pots more carefully in the future. The wipers are fine. I testet the plain circuit (without the wipers) by connecting the two endpoints. "Try lightly scraping/sanding the black band near the solder point. This might expose the conductive material better. Then solder this point up to the main solder point." I will definetly try this. Fingers crossed... Sokol1: Fortunately I have collected some old gameport sticks from a local secondhand market for pennys, then I took the usefu
  3. Hi, First off I am far form expert in electronics, so keep that in mind. Thanks. I made a Frankenstein joystick (with extention) form a Thrustmaster TOPGUN and a MSFFB2. Then I decided that I will make a throttle form the leftover, which I did. I am now almost complete, but just before finish the thurstmaster potmeters died (They were working initially). I took them apart, cleaned, and tested with multimeter. I found out that the connection between the legs and the circuit are only working when hot from soldering. If it cools down the connections are lost
  4. Martyn-F The CTD with MSFFB2 is not related to your changes. I also have silver trigger MSFFB2 and had similar crashes all the time well before the update wich added the startup.cfg options for force feddback. I had random CTD during missions, but CTD was extremly frequent when changing keymapping or FFB settings but the most reliable way to CTD is Alt+TAB-ing. Just start pressing ALT+TAB and after a few tries you will definetly CTD. Also you may have noted that if you survived an ALT+TAB, you will most probably lose or mess up FFB effects after returning to the game. You can repai
  5. Thanks for the advise! Although I found a package with 5 male and 5 female plugs preassembled. One can make the desired cabel from this without the crimp tool. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/5Sets-Mini-Micro-2-0-PH-Connector-Male-Female-2-3-4-5-6-Pin-Plug/32972303673.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.38.148f17e6iyYWpb&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2_10065_10068_319_10059_10884_317_10887_10696_321_322_10084_453_10083_454_10103_10618_10304_10307_10820_10821_537_10302_536,searchweb201603_52,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=2607017b-6336-4ed6-b83b-6b09d89284c4-5&algo_pvid=2607017b-
  6. Hi, I got my answer here: http://forum.vkb-sim.pro/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3651
  7. Hi! I would like to make an extension for my Ravcore Javelin. (It is an OEM VKB Gladiator sold in Europe.) It seems to be easy, I just have to disconnect the cable coming from the base inside the grip then connect them with and extention cable (and make an extention tube of course). The problem is I don't know the type of the connectors used in the stick. (I just bought a standard three pin fan extetion cabel just to realize it is too big.) I dont want to permanently solder the extention cabels so I need plugs/connectors. If anyone knows, please let me know what kind of cable/connector/p
