I tried accessing there forum and they dont allow Yahoo accounts which really sucks because thats all I have (Although I did use a internet service provided email address to order my handgun from TheGunSource.com once)

I dont know how to get into there website without a lengthy conversation with my internet provider that Im too lazy to do right now.

What are some basic maintenance cleaners and parts I might need? Where do I get these "gymballs", anyone sell upgraded parts for it on this forum?

I dont know what to expect, Ive seen a couple complaints that the stick is too stiff to precisely control a plane, I was kinda hoping for a plug and play stick that I dont have to take apart or nothing, but Im willing to do whatever it takes to own a top of the line stick.

Is there anyone who can help me keep my Cougar HOTAS maintained for when I get into WWII Flight simming?

"IJ" is the guy to look for, he's always posting in the Mods and Tweaks thread. He is the one that produces the U2 NXT gimbals.

Hello Superjew,

Ecodragon is correct, get with IJ as he is the Cougar guru. Since you have the Cougar, here is a guide that may help you to set it up for IL2:
