Dear fellow flight simmers,
In the last weeks I have been working on a MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 mod. I added a UH-1 / F-4 grip, rewired and programmed it with a teensy board, extended the stick with a carbon tube and soldered new resistors into the original FFB stick, to increase power. Finally I added a switch to the base, to be able to turn on/ off FFB power anytime. I'm very happy with the result - in my eyes, this is a fantastic, while cheap DCS helicopter cyclic and a great general flight stick. Of course, any grip can be mounted. Getting there was not hard, but it took some time. Different mod instructions on flightsim forums helped me a lot. And now that I know exactly what is needed and what I have to do, I would like to give something back:
If you would like to have such a stick, write me a message. I don't want to earn money with this, but basically cover the expenses. So, I'm looking forward to your PMs!
