WOW your my hero

Was almost on the money, not a bad estimate.

Now I need to somehow get the warthog system inside the KG13

So after a good deal of head scratching and a fantastic suggestion from Sokol1 I think I know what has to be done...

Due to the need for the Warthogs stick to remain attached in order to be registered by windows I will not be stripping out the warthog stick instead I will be tricking windows into thinking the KG13 is a USB Ps3 Controller or keyboard

To do this I need a USB board and the Teensy look like it will do the job

http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/

The dimensions are 1.2" by 0.7"

So, the Teensy will fit in the box that previously housed the 8 pin din connector .







Now I just need to understand what each wire controls and rewire them to the teensy.. at least I hope its that easy.

The warthog stick itself will be connected to the base but stowed in a box I am going to make.

The last thing I need is a connector from Mentalnwood's warthog extension to the KG13 which I can hopefully get manufactured locally.

Like I said before... now I need to figure out how to wire it correctly, the next and probably last hurdle. I hope its just a case of soldering the wire to the board but I am not certain.

I received and tested the teensy board today, it works.

Now I need to understand which wires should go where

So after some help from C6_trollbug I now have the wires setup correctly... unfortunately they are reversed i.e. rather than turning on when i press a button they turn off

Here is the code I am using...

void setup() {
pinMode(0, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(1, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(2, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(3, INPUT_PULLUP);
}

void loop() {

// read the digital inputs and set the buttons
Joystick.button(1, digitalRead(0));
Joystick.button(2, digitalRead(1));
Joystick.button(3, digitalRead(2));
Joystick.button(4, digitalRead(3));

// a brief delay, so this runs 20 times per second
delay(50);
}

Sorted

void setup() {
pinMode(0, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(1, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(2, INPUT_PULLUP);
pinMode(3, INPUT_PULLUP);
}

void loop() {

// read the digital inputs and set the buttons
Joystick.button(1, digitalRead(0) == LOW);
Joystick.button(2, digitalRead(1) == LOW);
Joystick.button(3, digitalRead(2) == LOW);
Joystick.button(4, digitalRead(3) == LOW);

// a brief delay, so this runs 20 times per second
delay(50);
}

Almost finished.....

So the first thing I did was purchase Metalnwoods amazing Warthog extender

http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.ph...3184593/1.html

Then went about thinking of how to position it and get it positioned at the right height and was shown this cheap effective design from Paradaz

http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.ph...3377271/1.html

So thanks to Paradaz and Metalnwood I now have a brilliant centre mounted warthog which I will be converting to a KG13 in a few weeks :goofy:

Today I tested the centre mount and I am VERY VERY happy its fantastic, so much more control its precise and hopefully will improve my terrible accuracy :thumbsup:

Anyway that's enough from me here are some pics...















Sorry for the terrible quality.
