The FSSB R3 is the new standard in high quality force sensor. Following the success of the venerable R1 and R2, R3 puts the new levels of quality, sensitivity and precision in hard to reach values even for expensive professional equipment. Definitely the best Joystick in the market
The new design of the sensor board, give a tact, smoothness and accuracy flight control, which makes the flying experience can not be compared to anything experienced before, high-precision maneuvers that are impossible without hundreds of training hours, are now made easily, thanks to the smoothness of control in areas close to the neutral position.
It is very difficult to express with words the feelings of control that the new R3 sensor transmits, but after testing it ... you can not fly without it.
It has provided the new design of a small deflection in the sensor system, which allows a slight angular movement in the stick, this, although very small, helps to facilitate adaptation to a force control, which is appreciated in the first flights.
Unlike R1 and R2 models, the new R3 has an propietary RealSimulator electronic system, both analog and digital processing, and can be used in two ways, both as an upgrade and as independently. Therefore behave as two separate joysticks, which can operate independently or together.
USE AS A STANDALONE JOYSTICK:
You only have to replace the HOTAS sensor module, for the FSSB R3 using information from the video FSSB-R3-Warthog Alone and connect the FSSB-R3 to your computer via the mini USB found in the FSSB-R3, the FSSB-r3 will be recognized as an HID device.
You can use any Windows tools for game devices compatible with HID, and the Joystick will be displayed on all applications that can handle HID devices with the name "FSSB R3 Warthog".
During quality control process, which is done manually to each unit manufactured, the FSSB R3 is calibrated and adjusted, but has also included an electronic calibration that allows the user to perform this operation as many times as necessary.
Another new feature included in the FSSB-R3 is the inclusion of special options which will be modified according to the needs that users transmit to us, but in principle and initial delivery, these are the special options included in the original firmware.
HAT as POV or TRIM. The HAT switch can be modified at any time to behave like a POV (default) or trim command. This allows during the use of the joystick, the HAT control the views or submit your information to 4 HID buttons for use as TRIM, that is their function in real life.
FULL SCALE CONTROL to select between four possible full scale settings of the axes X and Y, this adjusts the ratio between force applied to the joystick and the signal sent to the computer. Although this looks like a sensitivity adjustment control is not exactly the same. This setting is ideal for adjusting joystick response in complex situations, such as a landing, refueling maneuver, ground attack. The setting values are FSC 1:1 3:4 1:4 1:2
NEUTRAL POSITION ADJUSTMENT. The adjustment of the neutral position manually allows exact adjustment of the neutral position of FSSB R3, in previous models R1 and R2, this adjustment was done through potentiometers on the electronic board, now is done using digital potentiometers, which are adjusted by the firmware when the user need, including in the middle of a flight mission.
During the selection of special modes, a beep will sound, indicating that the FSSB-R3 is in configuration mode when not hear any beep the FSSB-R3 is in normal operating mode.
Use as upgrade for the HOTAS.
In addition to the advantages offered by the use of the FSSB-R3 standalone, this has connectors that allow you to send data from FSSB-R3 to HOTAS electronic board, for installation using videoFSSB-R3-Warthog HOTAS Upgrade.
When used with HOTAS electronics, you can connect both USB cables to the same computer, and choose with your computer, which joystick use. Obviously the user can configure the simulation program, using both, the HOTAS variables and buttons as well as native FSSB R3 varables and buttons, being limited only through the options of the software you are using.
As a rule, the HOTAS could benefit from both the high quality of data X and Y axes as well as some special modes FSSB R3.
