MFG team is happy to announce our new product – MFG Warthog extensions. Product is in stock, and ready to ship.

Updated on : 08. April 2017. Warthog extensions can be ordered together with MFG Crosswind rudder pedals or separately. For separate order please contact us trough e-mail with full order info as written below.

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 gimbal mechanism, thus minimizing the shortcomings of original design ( stiction of gimbal mechanics, short throw of the joystick, strong centering spring). Every Warthog joystick + extension owner will confirm that this small and relatively inexpensive add on 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 shortcoming of this accessory 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 recommend length of 7.5 cm only, with limited ergonomics !!

Features :

  • Can be used on Thrustmaster Warthog or Cougar joystick
  • made of aluminum alloy, polished  (lightweight)
  • professionally 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
