You have the gameport model I think (the usb has already prop and mixt)The answer is that it is impossible. The gameport version will only allow 4 axis. So you cannot add anything.One solution is to to hack a old joystick (or buy a DB 15 port and 2 potmeters) and ad the 2 levers to your ch yoke. Connect them via a gameport-usb convertor to your pc.regardsNorberthttp://home.wanadoo.nl/norbert.bosch

Hi."You have the gameport model I think (the usb has already prop and mixt)"No, the LE is USB, the older version. I am not sure if they use pots or xducers? I will have to look inside to get a better idea of what is going on in there. Thanks for your input. TV

They use 50K ohm pots on the CH Yoke with a common ground and VCC.Here is a picture of the pot board. The pots and levers are on the top of this board.John

Does this site help?...http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/howto/rudtoe.htm...scroll down to the 'bonus idea'.This shows you a modification of the LE USB but requires the use of a gameport adapter to do it.I use the 3 lever CH Yoke so haven't done as is described, but I have started to put together a throttle quad using the gameport slot based on the info in the article. I found it easier to modify an old gameport contoller rather than working from basic components.Good luck,Phil.

Hello, everyone.Thank you for your feedback. I decided to open it up and I was able t o get a good idea of what is in it. It has pots, just like was mentioned above, and the controller seems to be dedicated to the LE. I tried to add another pot / lever but the calibration software does not see / recognize it. It would be trivial to add a couple of pots / levers, if there was a way to get the controller identified as 5 axes? Id does seem to have an additional axis available, see arrow to point R, maybe 2, but if it does not get recognized it
