If you want to squeeze the maximum out of your Thrustmaster Warthog, consider an extension.
As you know Thrustmaster Warthog uses a native 16-bit resolution (65536 x 65536 values) and in order to exploit its full potential an extension seems and in fact IS necessary.
After a period of adoption an extension will greatly improve precision on your Warthog. The original Warthog-throw is too short to fully exploit Warthog’s unique high resolution. Furthermore the high resistance force of the main spring is also automatically reduced by the extension. After applying the extension to your Warthog you will notice instantly the overall better feeling (micro corrections) in handling of the plane. Finally your Warthog becomes a whole new better stick.
