Default Warthog Centre Stick Mod

So after a years wait for my Tarmac Aces stick I was informed today that production has been interrupted and that I am being reimbursed.

The writing was on the wall ever since the manufacture that supported them was taken over a few months back and the guys I was in cahoots with started moving on I am livid about the news but at least I am getting my money back.

Anyway no point crying over split milk it's time to get proactive if I can't buy one I will just have to make one myself.

I know some of you have modded your sticks, if you have any advice or guides I will be very grateful if you could share them I don't fancy buggering up my warthog.

Thanks.

P.S. Also thanks to the original Tarmac Aces Guys they really brought something new to the table and I wish them good luck in there future endeavours.

Wow a real shame on the Tarmac Ace mate, but lucky you got your money back!

Thanks again crash, but I think that 8 pin is a bit different will check.

It looks like I will need the internals of a warthog stick as well and since I don't fancy prising mine apart atm I either have to try and buy one or buy another entire warthog system.

I am about get one of these to try the centre stick first

I am scouring the web to find the length of the 109/190 control stick.

Does anybody have any info, I am starting to get desperate ?

Its looks to be roughly around 44 to 42mm judging from images!

using a sketch of a FW 190 (without a real scale), from the bottom of the base to the top of the stick: nearly 60 cm (maybe a little more).

The warthog throttle is 28cm high, so you would need a 32 cm long rod.
