Hi!

Here´s my expanded version of tuned x45. I saw Bearcats mod few weeks ago and noticed that it´s not only me who´s wondering what to do with unused x45 joystick. My setup is similar to Bearcats: MSFF2+CH pedals+Saitek x45. So I got inspired toohttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

There´ve been great mods atleast from F19_Orheim and recently triggerhappyfin, maybe others too. Thx guys!

Sokol-1 also seems to help everyone and gives great advices and jeroen-79 send this diagram to a one thread:

I´m used to turn throttle to 10 o´clock. My wrist is happier after flying a long sessionhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif So I decided that´s the way I should try to fit throttle to the box.

I was also trying to reuse old **** from my junkboxes. Only thigs I bought for this project was that red secured switch, a numberpad and gears to levers and pots.
The box is compact and easy to take to a LAN party and there´s some room for additional stuff if I want to. I recently added stickerlabels to switches an levers.

It´s now tested and It WORKS!

that thread is a sticky in the Technical Help forum

http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/49310655/m/3821084134

should collect all links there, otherwise these jewels get lost way down to the bottom of thread graveyard

congrats by the way, neat work http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That's the coolest thing I've seen in a while! I also can't help noticing the vintage motorcycle in the background.
