  1. To replace the whole TQ magazine and faulty OEM potentiometer wth reliable HE sensor compatible unit. This V6 upgrade will provide easy and speedy upgrade process for Saitek PS2 or USB TQs.. No disassembling of the OEM magazine is required. Basic electronic knowledge and soldering skill are preferred. Thank you for watching. Here is the video link:
  2. Hello, I believed the internal structure in the new Logitech Yoke and the Old Saitek yoke are the same. If the modification that you and picked or preferred is working on old Saitek Yoke then it will have no problem when doing the same modification to the new Logitech Yoke. Personal preference of the result after modding is very subjective to different individual though.
  3. Nico, You may try this. This will remove all problematic predefined yoke settings. You can re-calibrate the yoke with fresh start. Be remembered to back up the registry file before proceeding.
  4. This is my revised design of my CH Yoke built in TPM HE sensor units. This kit is a good replacement of the CH OEM defective TPM potentiometers. The video link: Thanks for watching.
  5. Hi C2615, Really interesting project. If you do not mind please post the photos of the finished work and a brief detail of your modification process. Thanks for sharing this with us.
  6. To explore the possibility in implementing Arduino Pro Micro Controller Board to DIY Cessna Hall Effect Sensors TPM. Prototype TPM is connected to the Arduino on the electronic bread board for testing. This is a prototype version. The final version is still under developing. Here is the link of the video: Thanks for watching.
  7. Peter, The Saitek Throttle Quadrants TQ HE kit is a DIY kit. I have the kit for sale. I am located in USA. However a basic electronic knowledge and soldering skill is required to upgrade the TQ to HE version. If interested please contact me at "ntydkhe@yahoo.com".
  8. To explore the possibility in converting a USB or PS/2 Saitek Throttle Quadrants to Cessna TPM by implementing Hall Effect sensors. Here is the video link: Thanks for watching.
  9. Hi Martin, Yes, the kit is available. May I ask "Do you have any basic electronic and soldering skill?" This Saitek TPM HE kit will need those skills to install. Of course I will assist you if you need help. You can contact me at "ntydkhe@yahoo.com" for questions. Thanks for your inquiry and support. Cheers, Norman
  10. Baron, I just checked the REG file in my PC under Win 10. I have FSX and not the FS2020, . Here are my suggestions (be advised: you are doing this on your own risk). (1) uninstall the CH Control Manager completely from PC. (2) with CH yoke plug in and remove the CH yoke device (click on the CH yoke icon and hit delete key) from your control panel screen. then unplug the CH yoke from PC. (3) backup your reg file first and delete the reg data from PC registry using regedit. Google how to backup reg file. Location of the old CH yoke data: [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\DirectInput\VID_068E&PID_00FF] [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_068E&PID_00FF] (4) restart PC and plug in the CH yoke. The PC should install the driver by itself with default windows CH yoke driver. No need to install the CH Controller Manager program. (5) click the new CH yoke icon showing up in the control panel then re-calibrate in the test tab. If the above steps fail to correct the problem. Then I suspect either the configuration in the FS2020 is not set up right or it might have a hardware problem inside the yoke. Hope this helps.
  11. Baron, Thanks to orchesta_nl for his reminder. I just google the Ch Product website and find this: Here is the link "http://www.chproducts.com/Pro-Throttle-v13-d-719.html". Go to the middle of the screen click the "control manager" to download the "control_manager-v4.55a".
  12. Baron, Not sure will this help. The CH product does have a program to delete/remove the CH product devices (all old data) from your PC. Just in case you have already tried this, please ignore the following: Here is the program name: "CMDelete.exe". Google and download the above program and give it a try. Make sure to read the instruction before running the program. Once the CH product device is removed, then reinstall the device from fresh start. Of course you are doing this on your own risk.
  13. Hi Ryan78, When you mentioned "but my yoke or throttle won't turn on when I plug it in", I suspected the yoke is not in working condition. Since you have pursued all the driver installing and testing processes, may I suggest the following trouble shooting methods (only if you have basic electronic skill and do this on your own risk): If you still have the yoke bottom case opened, use a multimeter to test the +5v or 4. something voltage readings are existed in the roll and pitch axes potentiometers. Placing the multimeter +v probe to 1st tab and -ve probe to 3rd tab of each potentiometer. Ignore the middle tab which is the signal output. It does not hurt which side is the 1st tab, your reading result is either +5v or -5v on your multimeter. Just be cautious not shorting any parts in the controller circuit. If you do not see the +5v showing up, then the yoke is not power up correctly. If you do see the +5v, then the problem might be the controller failed to communicate to the PC via USB port . One more test is the USB cable. Make sure the USB cable is not broken. You can google how to test the USB cable. This will create the no power or lack of communication issues if the USB cable is broken. If the USB cable is OK, then the controller broad inside the yoke might be defective. Hope the above methods work for you.
  14. diavyd, Just found some information might be helpful to you. Please refer to "https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?223925-Is-this-normal-for-Saitek-Throttle-Quadrant". Hope this works for you.
