    Centre Detent mod - instructions

    Hi all,

    Some detailed pics of the centre detent mod I completed this morning. Took around 20 mins in total and very please with the results.

    Tools used:
    - small screwdriver
    - 2.5mm and 4mm drill
    - 2x 4mmx4mm magnets

    The magnets were from here, came next day. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Small-mag...k/162003918151

    Take the base and handle off, total of 8 screws on the base and 4 screws to remove the handle. Once the handle is off mark the base of the handle dead centre. I found this to be 2cm from the edge and 1cm from top. Tip - use a sharp pencil and you get much more accurate lines



    Once marked, drill the hole - you want this to be exactly 4mm for a snug fit. I used the 2.5mm drill first then the 4mm. Once drilled insert the magnet. This should be a good snug fit.








    Next put the handle back on (no need to screw the base plate back on) and using the Thrustmaster Control Panel (not target) find and mark the centre point.



    Take the handle back off and drill into the side, again using the 2.5mm and then the 4mm. You have to be careful here as you'll need to drill at a slight angle.



    Finally insert the second magnet into the hole. Make sure you check the poles to ensure the magnet is going in the correct way. Push the magnet in slightly, you can adjust this once reassembled - basically I was aiming for the smallest gap between both magnets.



    Reassemble! I thought I'd need to put two magnets in, but the one does the job perfectly and it's hidden away. I made a little video of it in action, hits the centre point every time! Just waiting for the grease to arrive.

    just to add (couldn't work out how to edit my post) - added the grease, a little too much and decided to add the second magnet into the other side, just to give a little more of a definition to the centre stop. Adjusted my holders from the HOTAS X, sowed a cushion much to my girlfriends disgust and am now ready to fly again

    Very good fight. Nice to see honorable combat between gentlemen. No need to go all the way. Thanks for sharing.
