Good video, well cut and informative. But put a shirt on, seriously, WTF.

The really slick part about the real F-16 stick is that it deflects in a linear spring fashion up to the max sensible force. So it is both a force stick and a deflection stick at the same time. :) That's a strange way of phrasing what you're trying to say, because the Hornet's stick also has simple...

Yeah there are so many years you'll get out the force sensor before the tiny strain gauge gives up. I've been using mine for six years and haven't had a problem but I'm the exception, every other FSSB user I know has done one replacement in that time.

That said, force sticks are just fun. On the plus side, smoothness and pilot feedback were the reasons that the real F-16 force stick was given physical deflection and that this incarnation of the FSSB has built in deflection is exciting. That would be interesting! How much does the F-16 stick move...

It's true. The quick movements available on a force stick get amplified through the net code and make things look bouncy- it happens. That said, force sticks are just fun.

If you watch the video for the full Warthog guts switchover, at the very end you can see him move the stick around with finger tip pressure. Very cool to see the physical deflection built into the system but I agree it is probably too light of a touch. http://youtu.be/zdocudYw2dw?t=6m10s That said t...

A little nervous posture, but still awesome. Great job on what I think is a 100% original maneuver! I've never even see that attempted before.

Nice flying Ray. My favorite part in Bob Hoover's book is where he was slotted to go into bombers because of his height, so he took a bottle of bourbon over to the assignment officer and problem solved. :lol:
