MFG team is happy to announce our new product – MFG Warthog extensions. Product is in stock, and ready to ship. While our webshop is not ready yet, from today we start taking orders by e-mail. PRICES ARE  PROMOTIONAL UNTILL MARCH 2017

 

About the product
Product is intended to improve Thrustmaster’s HOTAS Warthog joystick behaviour by extending Warthog’s grip position as compared to it’s gymbal mechanisam, thus minimizing the shortcomings of original design ( sticktion of gymbal mechanics, short throw of the joystick, strong centering spring). Every Warthog joystick + extension owner will confirm that this small and relatively inexpensive addon will dramatically improve original behaviour of the stick by means of  more natural ( larger) throw of the stick which makes it possible to be used as decent center or side mounted joystick. Customers also experience better feeling in handling of the plane due to fine positioning of the stick which is most important while dogfighting.

Only shorcoming of this acessory is that it can hardly be used with joystick sitting on top of a regular desk. Un-modified Thrustmaster Warthog sit too high on a  desk too, and by adding extension to it desk usage ergonomics  make it unpractical to say at least…so warthog joystick base must be somehow mounted in lower position than office desk to utilise potential of an Warthog extension. If your intention is to use Extension with a desk mounted joystick we recomend lenght of 7.5 cm only, with limited ergonomics !!

Features :

  • Can be used on Thrustmaster Warthog or Cougar joystick
  • made of aluminum alloy, polished  (lightweight)
  • proffesionally produced cable (reliability, short connector size, thin and long cable for easy assembly and easy twisting)
  • threads adopted so multiple extensions can be used used together ( adjust lenght)
  • stepless grip rotation angle fixing due to unique thread design (custom grip offset)
  • 3x lenghts available : 7.5 cm, 10cm and 12 cm
