MS FFB2 modded stick for you

I had the exact same plan for a while, i.e. modding my G940 like they did on their FFB2 but I plugged my FFB2 just to have a feel and I was shocked by the difference of feeling with my G940

that's why I leaned toward a frankenstick based on the FFB2. But I don't rule out putting the stick of the G940 on the ffb2, even getting the board inside a new box in parallel to be able to keep the trim pots and the throttle.

 

Maybe this isnt necessary. Yesterday i rediscovered a thread about a G940 user made firmware which gets rid of that big non ffb deadzone of the g940 and completely removing the hysteresis of the throttle and other things. Seems worth a try and user feedback is positive. I will definitively try that one out before i do any modding. :)

so again, thank you for the reminder.

 

I managed to install it. I guess I tried before but was not able to complete to proper install.

 

Anyway, I can feel a slight difference now, in a good way, but still this is not a true game changer. I recently acquired a second MSFFB2 and while I was testing if it was still in working condition, I was amazed how much smooth it felt. 

the mechanism under moderate load is super smooth compared to my G940 which could not help but remind you it has plastic gearing.

 

I comfort me in the fact I will go back to a modded MSFFB2, but I have to find a way to have as much possibilities button wise as the logitech hotas. 

 

let's see what the vote over the Virpil panel bring us in the near futur, but I guess I will look into control panels at some point. Even more with the foreseable release of TF5.0, which will hopefully bring CloD back to life and I will need an extensive number of control for bomber and so on.

 

anyway, back to the topic, this week will be "discovering and measuring the inside" week
