CD ROM Inc. (CRI) makes modular THRUSTMASTER HOTAS (hands on throttle and stick) WARTHOG joystick extensions and springs. Options for 10CM, 20CM, 30CM or 40 CM long. Each extension has a cable slightly longer than the extension for ease of connection. Our springs are custom made to replace the existing springs to support longer joystick extensions. Our 10CM and 20CM spring is @ 2X as strong as the spring in the HOTAS you buy commercially. Our 30CM and 40CM spring is @ 4X as strong as the spring in the COTS HOTAS. These springs provide @ 200% or 400% of the original spring pressure. Our extensions are shiny aluminum like the base plate. For spring replacements, unscrew the 8 screws in the base plate. Take out the old spring and put the new spring in. Replace cover of base plate and the 8 screws. Takes about 20 minutes if you have done it a few times. If this is your first time, plan on 2 people taking 1 hour. And be sure you have the virtue of patience. The extensions are super easy to install. Just unscrew the joystick grip from the base plate and screw in the extensions. You then have a much more realistic movement and more comfortable positioning of the joystick in many simulated environments. Please download both the spec sheets for the extensions and spring option below. Check back soon for instruction videos.
