Warthog Throttle wiggle

Just notice my warthog's right throttle has a slight wiggle to it when it's in the cut off position. I can giggle it around a bit.

One I place it in the idle position, it's more solid but still has a slight looseness to it.

Anyone else have this issue?

Mine is solid all the way around. The three way switch outboard on the left throttle is very weak in feel. And, unfortunately, I am beginning to get stiction (friction until you start to move) on the joystick.

The Hornet is best at killing things on the ground. Now, if we could just get a GAU-8 in the nose next to the AN/APG-65, a titanium tub around the pilot, and a couple of J-58 engines in the tail...

I posted about this a little while ago. Both of my throttles wiggle right the way through, right one more so (it is a couple of years old mind you)! I opened the throttle up and tried tightening things up then placed a thin piece of card between the linkage which prevented the wiggle for a while. Seems to have come out now though as the movement has returned. It is mildly annoying I must admit.

I just bought my first warthog and straight out of the box the right throttle is wiggeling. When I try to use the china the right throttle handle will "twist" forward a couple of milimeters.

Actually. Both of them are wiggeling. But the right one is a bit annoying. I don't wanna send it back because it seems like I might be able to fix it myself by just tightening some screws or something but I'm hesitant to open it since it's just a couple of days old. Any ideas?

First of all, you should contact Thrustmaster.

Send them a ticket in there support forum. Maybe they have a solution for you without voiding there warranty.

If not, and you can be without it, send it back.....

 

They have a very good support.

Got spare parts for my racing-wheel at no cost, twice!

Hey Strix. Thanks for the reply.

 

I just sent them an email as you suggested.

Hopefully they'll get back with some good info. I really don't want to send it back. It's just minor problems. But with the price I paid for it, small things like this shouldn't be there when its brand new.

 

Anyway, if anyone else has any info I would greatly appreciate it

Mine is solid all the way around...

 

This is something all units have, the cause is how it is internally constructed.

 

"Tightening" some screws won't do anything, and to be honest you'll get used to it.

 

Well, apparently not it would seem

I've also asked a friend that owns one. He doens't have this. The guys I fly with that owns warthogs don't either. Of course it might be a bit of a miss-communication regarding the issue. But I've asked them to move the throttle sides ways, wiggling it or any which way, they have no jerking or wiggeling. Bending is one thing, but this is not it.
