    Thanks to fast international shipment, my Cougar throttle has revived!

    My circuit board is old type so I’ve needed to solder a shortcut cable but the installation of this kit is very easy!

    Works fine! Good product!

    Very happy I chose Viper Gear! They really seem to care. The first sensor I recieved from them was bad, and they were absolutley EXCELLENT in getting me a new one. Not only that, but I was having other strange issues that Viper Gear worked with me to get corrected over a timespan of 2 weeks. The support alone was worth the money!

    As for the product, its important to note the Cougar that I owned was actually in tip top shape. Despite this, I noticed the OEM pot did allow small movements without registering them. Now that I have the Viper Gear Sensor, accuracy and sensitivity are infinitely better. Very slight movements register. Where the original sensor would make “jumps,” this sensor is smooth and even. Again, this is comparing to a perfectly functioning, new old stock, OEM sensor.
    This is a must have for us precision flyers!

    Install is easy, (plug and play) as long as you have the later board (my serial numbers for both cougars are in the 20,000s, so most likely as long as yours is 20,000 or up, it should work. Still they will tell you to check to make sure.

    Shipping was fast (considering its going halfway accross the world) and well packaged. I did choose the DHL shipping and I will most likely use that option again later for the Force Sensing W E.

    In Conclusion
    I have already recommended Viper Gear to other pilots. Originally I was going to use Real Simulators Force sensing equipment but after the great experience with VG, I am going with stick them. (No pun intended)
