Yes. That is my setup

Mine as well. I’ve done it a few ways - 1) full up Cougar with only the throttle assigned and Warthog stick; 2) Cougar throttle with RealSim TUSBA and Warthog stick; 3) Cougar throttle modified with a Bodner board to make it standalone USB and a Warthog stick.
I did 3) before the TUSBA was available, in a fit of desperation…but all three ways work!

I ordered the TUSBA and am eagerly awaiting it. I also ordered CH pedals since my old Thrustmaster elite pedals don’t have toe brakes and I plan to use this setup with Cougar MFD’s. My first question is does anyone have a TARGET profile for this setup? My second is can I use the in game setup to configure everything without TARGET? Third question does anyone know where I can get a new pot or HALL sensor for the throttle if my current pot is jacked up?
I used Jagstangs F4AF profile with my Cougar for years and the SP3 profile prior to that so going to the Warthog throttle and not having cursor slewing is driving me nuts. I have track IR 5 now so I don’t need the shifted function for the DMS for views other than padlocking would be nice. Being a complete novice to TARGET any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance…

I recently (about a month or two ago) got a normal Cougar throttle pot via Thrustmaster.
I was given the info on how to get one in this thread: http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4192031/
I paid via Paypal and got the pot pretty quickly. Mind you that this one is not pre-soldered, so you have to take the old one out, unsolder the wires, and solder onto the new pot. I am an idiot who doesn’t have the tools or knowledge how to do this but a friend of mine does and for him it was a five minute job. You could try asking Thrustmaster if they also have a pre soldered one. And I think maybe Red Dog used to offer them on Cougar World? Guess you could send him a PM on this forum?
Unlike what that thread says the total cost (part and shipping) was 20 euros for me. But I live in Western Europe, perhaps they do charge 30 or more to the USA.
Hope this helps.
I now also got the TUSBA R2 btw and it works great!
